Kickin' Asahi

Had my first Asahi Super Dry last night and I'm not ashamed to say it was because of this commercial. It is just my opinion but that is the greatest commercial ever made and I dare anyone to disagree. The part when Matsuzaka throws a pitch in a virtual Fenway is breathtaking. It took me considerably longer to drink than Dice K but I did put on my Yaz jersey in an imitation slow mo. C. Jo didn't get the reference and probably wouldn't have found it amusing if she did. It is a good beer although I'm not sure it is worth the $9.25 I paid for it at Blanchard's unless a portion of that goes to the Sox to pay Matsuzaka's posting fee. I also fully support the reemergence of dry beer. I never had a Bud Dry but miss it mightily. All said it is a fine beer and I'd order it at a restaurant but probably won't pick up another 6 pack. Narragansett had not been dethroned. It is tough to beat cheap drinkable nostalgia in 16 ounce cans.

UPDATE: According to the Anheuser Busch website Bud Dry still exists. Who knew?

Typical Red Sox alcoholic player. He'll probably set his ranch hands on fire next.
