Buy Sam a drink, and get his dog one too!

January 24, 2007

Pittsburgh Penguins hockey announcer Mike Lange utters some great celebratory phrases after the Pens score a goal.

Doggie beer! (AP)Among them:

  • “Oh No, Eddie Spaghetti!”
  • “Call Arnold Slick from Turtle Creek!” (a town near Pitt, pronounced “crick” in local accent)
  • “Great Balls of Fire!”
  • “(goalie name) doesn’t know whether to cry or wind his watch!”
  • “Get in the Fast Lane Grandma, the bingo game is ready to roll!”
  • “Awww, She Wants to Sell My Monkey!”
  • “Michael Michael Motorcycle!”
  • “Scratch My Back with a Hacksaw!”
  • “He beat (insert name of goalie here) like a Rented Mule!”
  • “Ladies and Gentlemen, Elvis has just left the building!”
  • and my favorite… “Buy Sam a Drink, and get his dog one too!”

Well, now Penguins fans (and Sam) can actually do so, and buy their dog a drink. A Netherlands company has introduced BEER FOR DOGS!

Which means you can now play TV drinking games alone with man’s best friend … that’s so sad.

From the AP story:

Terrie Berenden, a pet shop owner in the southern Dutch town of Zelhem, created a beer for her Weimaraners made from beef extract and malt.

“Once a year we go to Austria to hunt with our dogs, and at the end of the day we sit on the verandah and drink a beer. So we thought, my dog also has earned it,” she said.

Berenden consigned a local brewery to make and bottle the nonalcoholic beer, branded as Kwispelbier. It was introduced to the market last week and advertised it as “a beer for your best friend.”

“Kwispel” is the Dutch word for wagging a tail.

The beer is fit for human consumption, Berenden said. But at euro1.65 ($2.14) a bottle, it’s about four times more expensive than a Heineken.
