Budweiser Dumps Clydesdales In New Marketing Campaign
In an effort to get more younger folks to drink Budweiser, Anheuser-Busch InBev is taking a new direction with its marketing. AB InBev will attempt to target more beer drinkers in their 20s with the new ads. In the works are sponsorships of food festivals and parties in college towns. The iconic Budweiser Clydesdales and Fleetwood Mac are not expected to be a part of the new ads. Which means we won’t be seeing ads like “Brotherhood” from last year.
Sting Makes WWE Debut At Survivor Series 2014
Last night’s WWE pay-per-view at Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis drew raves from wrestling fans across the country. Among the highlights, professional wrestling legend Sting made his WWE debut. Rumors are that the WWE is setting up a Sting-Triple H bout at WrestleMania 31. Here’s a rundown of the event.
The Missouri Tigers moved one game away from their second consecutive SEC East title with a 29-21 win over the Tennessee Volunteers in Knoxville on Saturday. 95,821 people saw the game at Neyland Stadium. The end of the game featured a really weird and controversial call on an onside-kick attempt. Mizzou hosts Arkansas on Friday in Columbia. The Razorbacks are one of the hottest teams in the land after shutting out LSU and Ole Miss in the past two weeks. A Tiger win means a return trip to Atlanta for the SEC Championship game. An Arkansas win means Georgia will play in the championship game in its backyard. Friday will be a huge day in college football.
The Volunteers went ahead on Missouri in the second quarter with a touchdown on a fake field goal. The sequence of events right after were magical.
The SEC West, where all of the teams are bowl-eligible, will send either Alabama or Mississippi State to the Georgia Dome on December 6.
Missouri coach Gary Pinkel was on the Hollywood Casinos Press Box on CBS Sports 920 today talking about the win over Tennessee and the upcoming game against Arkansas. Local broadcast hero Tim McKernan has a great piece on the team over on InsideSTL.com
