Their beer: Bold City Mad Manatee IPA
I always get confused: is it a bad thing when TV pundits regularly ask if the best college football team in the land could possibly beat you? Jacksonville has been a punchline for so long that it almost feels lame piling on, so just enjoy this balanced IPA with a floral aroma and a crisp citrus, and we won’t say anything about the fact that their two best offseason signings, Julian Thomas and Dante Fowler, are out for a month and the year, respectively. Bold City, indeed.
Kansas City Chiefs
Their beer: Boulevard Brewing Co. Heavy Lifting IPA
In a football sense, the heavy lifting will belong to the defense, because the Chiefs continue to insist Alex Smith is a starting NFL quarterback despite his inability to, like, throw to wide receivers. They also seemed to forget that Jamaal Charles exists at some points last season. If this team somehow DOES win, carrying the coach off the field will also constitute heavy lifting. Get it? Andy Reid is a large man!
