No internet, no problem, as you can get free beer at the Nebraska-Northwestern game.

Win or lose, you can still booze watching the Nebraska-Northwestern game over in Dublin.

With internet outages at Aviva Stadium in Irish capital, the concession stands workers gave the Big Ten football fans what they wanted, which was free beer. It does not matter if they dig Guinness, Killian’s or any Irish brew, free beer is still free beer, and that is all that matters! While either the Wildcats or the Cornhuskers are going down on Saturday, at least you can drink for free.

Word started to get out about the free suds being passed out in the first half of the Week 0 game.

Now the concourse is packed with a sea or red and purple in need of their Irish brew daddies.

It has been decided. Dublin should have a Week 0 game every single college season. It is perfect!

No internet, free beer: Nebraska-Northwestern fans get some free suds in Dublin

While the NFL has London, college football needs to capitalize on Dublin being their base of operation overseas yesterday. The Irish capital is a bit smaller than the United Kingdom capital, but the vibes are absolutely tremendous. Waking up early, tailgating and watch some football sounds like a perfect time in both Dublin and Lincoln. This is how you grow your sport, people!

While the novelty of traveling overseas to watch mediocre Big Ten football could wear off over time, nobody in their right mind is going to turn down a free beer in Dublin when they are kind of on vacation. It is abundantly clear that the Irish get what college football is all about. Other metropolises in Europe could one day do the same, but Dublin is about to be Europe’s Atlanta!

Ultimately, we are happy college football is back in our lives and we are especially thankful that are friends in the British Isles can enjoy what we enjoy as well. While the tradition and pageantry of Big Ten West football might be lost on them for the time being, the Irish are like Midwesterners in that they are here for a good time, not a long time. Best part: We wouldn’t have it any other way.

There is no other way than to end this informative article with anything other than: Cheers!
