Being Canadian, there is a good chance that I like beer and I like hockey. But even I see the downside of this one:
Shortly before lunchtime Thursday, the St. Louis Blues sent an e-mail to fans announcing "Tuesdays on Tap," a promotion offering unlimited free beverages, including beer, for certain tickets to five upcoming home games. Asked why, he said that it was a "business decision." "We were discussing a lot of creative ideas," said McLoughlin, CEO of the business side of the Blues franchise. "It's unfortunate the e-mail went out."To translate:
- "business decision" = a decision not to commit suicide with the business.
- "discussing creative ideas" = we were drinking and talking and drinking some more.
- "unfortunate" = now the boss knows my name.
