I am pretty buzzed right now, so I'm keeping this short and sweet. Yes, it is true. As of right now it looks like Sam Adams and Stoolapalooza are not coming to UNH. Check out Barstool Sports for the full story, but this is pretty much what happened: Alpha Sigma Phi booked them and was doing everything right. The show was all set to go, but the UNH admin and the MUB found out that Stoolapalooza was sponsored by Southern Comfort (EVEN THOUGH THE UNH SHOW WASN'T SINCE IT IS ON CAMPUS) and they cut the show. UNH has a policy to not allow alcohol sponsored events on campus, which makes sense... except for the fact the the UNH show was NOT being sponsored by SoCo! I'm not even a Sam Adams fan and this pisses me off. Needless to say that El Pres of Barstool ripped Scope (for not taking the show in the first place) and UNH a new one on Barstool. Welcome to the club El Pres, I've been preaching about their (UNH Admin and Scope's) inconsistency for over a year.
I completely understand that this recent discovery is not Scope's fault, but hey, Barstool took this opportunity to rip them so why not? And if any Scoper's try and bitch to me about how it wasn't their fault, I already know it is not your fault.
It is easy to say it is El Pres' fault too, but he actually made sure that SoCo would not be apart of the UNH show. Apparently that didn't matter because the other shows on the tour were sponsored by SoCo.
Also, I owe SCOPE a thanks, last time I made fun of them the blog received twice the normal page hits... so fuck them? But good luck in the future.
Stay classy, not UMassy.
