  • Hancock Situation & Ratings Hell Friday, 25 May 2007 | 10:09 AM ET

    Beer and sports have always had a strong connection that has been fortified by the fact that alcohol companies spend so much money to appeal to sports fans. Now consider the fact that this has happened. A pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals, a team that was owned for four decades by Anheuser Busch, and has a greater connection to beer than any other team in sports, died from drinking too much. This came after the team's manager, Tony LaRussa, was charged with a DUI in March after he was found asleep at the wheel with his car running at a green light. Now there's yet another connection. Hancock's father is now suing, among others, Mike Shannon's Restaurant owned by the longtime Cardinals broadcaster for serving his son alcohol when they knew he was drunk even though Shannon's daughter claims she even offered to call him a cab. You couldn't have dreamed this one up.
