“I was just blown away because I’ve never seen a beer $18 or $19 in my life,” he said. “Guys have been talking about it, so I had to stand up for the fans. Felt like it was right.”

When one twitter user challenged Thomas as to where he thought the large winner’s prize pot came from, Thomas said humorously: “Tv deals, ticket sales, corporate sponsors, etc. from the looks of it if the concession stands were factored into our purse we would be playing for $15 million.”


I eat and drinking hearty before attending concerts and sporting events.

Sporting events are absurd how much they charge. Ridiculous

I’ve yet to see 18 bucks a beer.

It was like 10 bucks a can at the Waste Management open. We jus5 went to the tent where they gave out free samples.
