$724… for Two Beers?

“Getchya cold beeah heah! Only $362 a pop!”

When they’re not insulting their country, the NFL has other tricks to show the fans what they think of them. Even the vendors are getting into the act.

At a recent Miami Dolphins game, a vendor used an illegal personal card reader to charge a fan $724 for two beers ( https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/10/video-beer-vendor-charges-fan-724-for-two-beers-gets-arrested?utm_source=MSN&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=inline-related). The regular price is $12 per beer. I’d call that robbery, too. Anyhow, the victim didn’t know he’d been robbed until the bank notified him. The vendor has been fired. Seems he never thought the bank would notify the customer about the unusual transaction.

No Professor Moriarty or Dr. Fu Manchu he, the vendor will face criminal charges. As Sherlock Holmes once said, the quality of crime these days isn’t what it used to be.

You should be able to attend a game without getting robbed in your seat–which you’ve already paid plenty for. But you should also be able to do that without having to see your country get dissed by pampered millionaires who say they’re oppressed.

  1. This vendor obviously once worked for the government. He should have stayed there, and his thievery would never have been caught and punished. (How do you do a “rolling eyes” emoji on the keyboard?)
