Xfinity Live! announces new Flyers x Bud Light promotion
Xfinity Live! has announced a collaboration with Bud Light, discounting cans fifty cents for every Flyers home goal. The unofficial home of sanctioned degeneracy in the Sports Complex announced the new promotion in the following statement:
PHILADELPHIA (November 2, 2021) –Philadelphia Flyers fans have a little something extra to celebrate this season, with the club announcing its new Bud Light Celly program. Through this promotion, Flyers fans making a post-game stop at Xfinity Live!, which is just steps from the arena, will have the chance to get a significant discount off 12 oz. Bud Light bottles. With each Flyers goal scored during Flyers home game, the post-game price of Bud Lights will drop by 50 cents. When the Flyers scored 6 goals versus the Seattle Kraken on October 18th and again versus the Boston Bruins on October 20th, Bud Light bottles, which are listed at $6.00, were discounted by $3.00.
I’m conflicted about this deal. Usually, when I attend a Flyers game, my preferred postgame stop is facedown on top of my bed, still wearing my jersey, jeans, and belt.
I have no desire to wait in a 30-minute line for a $4 Bud Light, especially after a few hours of tailgating and a few more hours of hard-hitting Flyers hockey and harder-hitting bourbon I smuggled in via an undisclosed method.
At the same time, if you’re the type of person that knows how to control yourself while at a live sporting event, what better way to celebrate a massive Flyers win? Keeping the party going late into the night at Xfinity with decently discounted light beer isn’t the worst thing in the world.
Plus, if the Flyers keep getting smacked in the second period and have to come back for the win, you can go ahead and get smacked postgame at Xfinity for pennies on the dollar. If a big Flyers win streak is involved, the savings on a nightly basis would undoubtedly add up.
That said, the eternal miserab in me has a bad feeling the Flyers, Bud Light, and Xfinity Live! are all in cahoots. Get the Flyers out to a hot start, draw in crowds for the promotion, and then the Flyers go on a skid, and the rich get richer. Is that totally psycho? Yeah, don’t take it seriously.
If it happens, though, I’ll be the first person you think of.
I’m a huge beer guy, especially ones that are drinkable. Bud Light is okay, but there are a ton of local beers that do it far better. Plus, you can already get a can of most of them for less than $6.
I’m not going to name any beers, mainly because none of them are paying me to. But, hey, if Parx is going to pay us, maybe one purveyor of delicious, refreshing local beer should nut up and show us the money.
