Eight percent of sports fans leave games drunk

I'm actually thinking this number is a little low, because how could you get through the Seattle Mariner's season last year without drinking profusely...

The study was conducted by the University Of Minnesota, who stopped a sampling of fans after football and baseball games and got them to take a breathalyzer test. Sixty percent of fans had no alcohol in their system, so we're presuming at least some of the tests were conducted after BYU games. Forty percent had drank, and eight percent were over the .08 BAC legal limit.

Apparently they've never been to an Eastern Washington football game where everybody leaves at halftime to return to the parking lot and drink.
