Blotch‘s mighty influence is evident in the revised press release just sent out by Tarrant County.
Blotch bitched this morning after Tarrant County Judge Glen Whitley and his Wisconsin counterpart bet a case of beer on the Rose Bowl game between the TCU Horned Frogs and the Wisconsin Badgers. Whitley said he would send a case of “Texas-made Shiner Bock” in the tiny chance that the Frogs were beaten.
Blotch argued that he should have promised a case of tasty beer from local brewery Rahr & Sons instead of sending some swill from far-off Shiner that tastes like hog sweat.
Lo and behold, a few hours later the press release was re-released with the following change: Whitley “had intended to send a case of Texas-made Shiner Bock but decided instead to send a case of award-winning Fort Worth brewed beer made by Rahr & Sons.”
Whitley added that Rahr & Sons founder, Fritz Rahr, is a TCU alum.
“We might just send them a case of Cowtown’s finest, win or lose,” Whitley said.
Blotch commends the swift leadership and decision-making of its county judge — and takes a self-congratulatory bow for sparking the debate that prompted the switch to Rahr.
