"We usually get a good turn-over crowd after this game," said Bass. "We get a lot of people who come in ready to party if we win."

Yeah, ready to party if the Vols win. And ready to drown their sorrows if they lose. In other words, looking for any reason to tie one on. Then go out and get behind a steering wheel and cause someone else untold grief.

They should have to put up posters in these bars of faces of those killed by drunk drivers similar to the billboards you see occasionally. The ones that are captioned "Killed by a drunk driver". If they put warning messages on packs of cigs for smokers, why not in bars for the drunks? But when you can hardly walk, I guess reading is hard to do. Good thing you don't have to stand up to drive!

Now, let someone write in and defend drunk driving. It will happen; you know it will.

I like to watch a good football game, from time to time. But, I'm not losing any sleep over Tennessee not being broadcast this past weekend. It's just a sport.

A lot of folks make a valid point about worrying over people not being able to slam back a few during or after the game and getting on the roadways to endanger people's lives, while they are driving drunk.

If you want to watch the game and drink, do it at home, when they are televised. In the interim, sit at home, drink and listen to it on the radio. The last thing we need on the roadways are more impaired drivers.

It would be nice if one the local channels would carry the games! Then if you wanted to watch it
great if not watch another channel. I think all the games should be on regular tv.
