Christie Kerr and Coors Light

30 posts in this topic

Anyone notice Kerr hawking Coors Light on her hat and her caddy's in the tourney this past weekend? Kinda threw me for a loop. I'm not crazy about it, maybe because I have 14-yr-old girl. I think girls are more impressionable than boys as it relates to celebs (I say this having also raised a boy, now 22). No crusade here, I hope Christie makes as much money as she possibly can during her marketable years but I do wish she had made a different decision here. Anyone else bothered by this?

Nope, not really. My dad always let me have the first sip of his nightly beer from when I was very young. Not a big deal. I don't hardly drink at all.

Not I.

I think if a 14 year old actively tries to go out and pursue a 6 pack of Coors (highly unlikely) because it was on Christie Kerr's hat...than you have a bit of a rebel on your hands, nothing more.

Look on the bright side...at least she's not promoting Everclear :-P

Why in the world would that bother me?

BTW, I have a 14 year old daughter too......but I don't understand what that has to do with it either.  Sports figures and celebrities endorse products.  Some are appropriate for children to use, and some are not.  It's not the responsibility of the celebrity to teach the kids the difference.  That falls to the parents.

Not a big deal at all. Matt Kuchar endorses Grey Goose.

Interesting, I thought more would raise an eyebrow, as I did. And to be clear, I'm not terribly worried about my kid running down to the packy to grab a six pack and some smokes because she has a strong family, understands right from wrong, etc. Lot's of kids don't have the kind of upbringing mine does, however and therein lies the concern. I still find it a bit questionable. Anyway, good feedback.

Other than the fact that it's crap beer, and you have to drink exactly 42 of them, to get drunk. I see nothing wrong here.

I can personal attest that some 16 year old girls get crazy drunk (or at least fake it very well) on 3 Coors Lights.

Disclaimer: This was a decade ago when I was also in high school.

48 actually, but I'm Canadian which may skew the stats a bit... On a semi-related note, Rolling Rock has recently become a hot item in Canada which blows my mind. Why on earth 3rd rate American beer has become popular amongst Canadians is beyond me.

We used to say that Bud, Rolling Rock, Coors were all beers that were like making love in a canoe. In other words, f^*$#ng near water.

All golfers should revere Rolling Rock because it was created and brewed in Latrobe, PA!  Unfortunately, Budweiser bought it and moved it out. I have a friend whose father and brother were brewmasters there.  They bought the brewery back from Bud and now make craft beer for various customers.  RR was not a bad beer if it was fresh.  It did not travel well IMO.

I thought Christy had better taste than Coors Light.  Awful beer.

Agree. Molson is awful. As is Labatt's. Just putrid stuff around.

    • Went out today and played a ridiculously quick 18 hole round (2 hours and 20 minutes) at a course I like to play every once in awhile just for a change of pace.  I hadn't touched a club for 9 days, so I really wanted to get out and play so I didn't lose all the gains I'd been making recently.

      I played the back tees (72.9 / 127 / 6748) and struggled a little bit.  

      No warm-up at all and my opening tee shot went directly into the woods & out of bounds.  I ended up with a 50 on the front that included a birdie, a triple, a quad and a quintuple bogey.  

      The back wasn't a whole lot better, but I had some good holes... and then I had 5 doubles.  It all added up to a 47 on the back.

      My 50 - 47 = 97 would be an ESC score of 92 for handicap purposes.  

      I just felt a little lost today.  A lot of things started right on me... others drifted right.  There was no consistency to my game and I'm going to have to get back out again a couple of times over the next few weeks to ensure I'm ready for the last 2 tournaments of the year.

    • Everyone in this country has the right to peaceful protest, but that doesn't insulate them from being considered disrespectful or from being criticized for their actions.   Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the timing of his protest a bit suspicious given he only chose to sit out the National Anthem when it was reported that he might lose his job at starting QB to Gabbert?   What was the catalyst that made him sit in protest this past week but nor previous weeks?   He'd been interviewed throughout training camp, I don't recall any news stories where he spoke out about the oppression of African Americans or the actions of law enforcement.  
    • ?? Isn't this the case with probably 99% of all stories or instances of things people get outraged about? I'm not outraged or offended by what he did. Let him sit, it will have next to no real effect for his so called cause. As others have stated, if he or any of the other celebrities who talk about the supposed "oppression of blacks/minorities" actually put their their money where their mouths are they'd have a much much larger impact. Just like the "feed the starving children" or "help the homeless" campaigns led by these rich celebrities asking the average person to donate when they could completely finance the charities and pretty much not even notice it financially. But, yeah, let's sit down for the national anthem because the American flag is a symbol of "oppression" towards blacks and minorities.
    • I posted some awards I am missing in that link The more I think about it, the more I think I am going to go with Evolvr unless someone around here has some personal experience.  Now I feel special that there isn't many of the ball markers out there.  I have ditched all my other markers and divot tools and just keep tees for tee boxes and fixing divots along with my special ball marker.
