Sake Possibilities - Sake & Hockey

Posted by Beau Timken in 2010, January, Newsletter
Sharks So there I was - at the Shark Tank watching my San Jose Sharks with my sushi chef buddy (our yearly outing) and I slugged down the last dregs of a cheap in quality not price beer. Yuk and burp. I thought to myself, why couldn't we be drinking sake right now? No - not one of my smuggled in boxes of sake, or hidden can brew, but a real purchased over the counter sake that is fresh and wonderful? Why? They have sake at sporting events in Japan. Depending on the season sakes may be purchased chilled, room temperature or warmed at certain sporting occasions. In fact one of my favorite micro breweries (jizake) sponsors a baseball team. I joked in one of my April Fool's humor issues of the Newsletter that True Sake was opening up True Sake Stands at PacBell Park. Many people fell for this prank, and many more wondered out loud - yes we should be able to drink sake at sporting events.

I'm a sake and hockey fan. (I love saying that - hint hint they rhyme) And I see no logical reason why we must be forced to drink brewski at sports events. That said I did see folks with small 4oz plastic cups with wine in them. If it's good enough for vino then it's good enough for me-oh! I know the resolutions were written above, but I will try to crack this no sake at sporting events nut this year.
