Rutgers athletic director Pat Hobbs has apologized for crushing a beer at a football tailgate, and that makes it a sad day in America.

Hobbs arrived at a tailgate prior to Rutgers game against Howard to check on the students. He did the only thing you can do at a tailgate and he crushed a cold beer as the crowd cheered. (SLIDESHOW: Get College Football Started Right With These Top 25 Ranked Cheerleaders)


Unfortunately Hobbs is now backtracking from the greatest thing to happen to Rutger football in decades. (RELATED: Hookstead’s Hot Take: Real Americans Celebrate College Football Returning With Lots Of Cold Beer)

“I regret that any action on my part can be interpreted as promoting the use of alcohol. That was certainly not my intention,” told the media about his impressive beer drinking skills.

It’s a sad and dark day in American history when a guy trying to pump up the crowd before a football game has to apologize for it. This country was built on the idea of freedom, and I think our Founding Fathers would agree that freedom includes drinking as many beers as you want before a football game.

Hobbs should show up to the next tailgate carrying a couple cases of cold beer just to prove a point. This oppression cannot be tolerated in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
