In a battle of Budweiser's, only wet t-shirt fans will win.


"A nearly century-long trademark dispute is intensifying between Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc., the world’s largest brewer, and tiny Czech producer Budejovicky Budvar. With both claiming they produce the only genuine Budweiser beer, they’ve taken their sudsy squabble to courts in 24 countries around the world.
Budvar won the latest round in South Korea, where a court ruled last month that the company’s name and trademark doesn’t conflict with Anheuser-Busch or infringe on its rights. "

A court battle? To settle a beer dispute? This is ridiculous just of the top of my head I can think of several better ways to solve this. What about quaters, or speed quarters, or beerball, drinking jenga, Beer-Olympics, boat races with the CEO's or just a traditional no holds barred battle on the grid iron, BUD BOWL XVI.

Sure we would give the Czechs a chance to train their wussy little euro-fashion cans and bottles. Bud might have to bring some of its greatest players out of retirement, The Freezer (aka "The Appliance Of Defiance, The Beersome Foursome, Beery Sanders and vaunted Bud Light QB Budway Joe.
