Tonight's Missouri Valley Conference showdown between Creighton and Wichita State may not be on the top of your must-watch games of the evening, but for the citizens of Omaha, Nebraska, the game just got a lot more interesting.
As part of a promotion to "White Out for Wichita", Creighton is offering dollar beers for all fans over 21 years old up until tipoff in the "Budzone" part of the arena. Being the responsible citizens that they are in Creighton, shuttle services are being provided for all those who want to party the night away and enjoy some Bluejay basketball with an old-fashioned buzz.
While "dollar beer" promotions have long been a part of minor league baseball and other sideshows, I am not sure that I have ever seen such an event at a college sporting event. But for the Creighton fans in Omaha, tonight may get slightly rowdy as the Shockers come a'knockin.
