We need your help.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

Waste Not Good Beer

by

comment

I was going to let the anti-Ute comments by Max Hall go by without a word, but thanks to John Saltas’ column [“Polar Opposites,” Private Eye, Dec. 3, City Weekly], I cannot. As a University of Arizona alumna, I have attended several basketball and football games at the University of Utah and at Brigham Young University.

At the U of U, our small group has always been treated with respect (and good-natured kidding), no matter who won the game. At BYU, we were subjected to extremely rude behavior by the fans. I’m sure they will be glad to hear that I will never go to a game there again.

And one more thing: I don’t know about U of U fans, but no U of A fan who I know would waste a good beer by dumping it on a fan from the opposing team!
