KC New School VS. Old School (NBA Style)

Bull, over on kcbeerblog has inspired me to come up with this ridiculous post. He posted a Roylas line up roster and associated beers. I came up with two NBA teams, one with Boulevard beer and one with old school beer. You can vote who would win if all of the players and beers were in their prime.

Boulevard (non-limited edition) Current Players

Single Wide - Chris Paul (New, Small, Sell out fast)
Wheat - Steve Nash (Well known, light color)
Pale Ale - Dirk Nowitzki (Rich, Pale)
Bob's 47 - Bobby Jackson (He's 36 not 47, but old for NBA)
Zon - Bruce Bowen (Zone defense)
Irish Ale - Brian Scalabrine (Red Head, Part Time)
Dry Stout - Shaq Diesel (Need I say more)
Bully Porter - Omeka Okafor (Bull in a China Closet)
Lunar - Jamario Moon (duh)
Nut Cracker Ale - Ron Artest (He will crack you nuts)
Double Wide - Glen "Baby" Davis (He's a big boy)
Long Strange Tripel - Chris "Birdman" Anderson (Trippy, Tall)
Sixth Glass - Manu Ginobili (Sixth man in '08)
Saison - Tony Parker (French, Smooth)

Old School Players, Old School Beers

Sam Adams - Larry Bird (Boston Classic)
High Life - Charles Barkley (The Champagne of Players)
Schlitz - Dennis Rodman ('Cause nothing says class more)
Budweiser - Michael Jordan (the King)
Old Style - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Fundamentals)
Miller Lite - John Stockton (Small, Light, Fast)
Black Label - Robert Parish (The beer has perished)
Stag - Tim Hardaway (A Man's Beer, look him up)
PBR (tallboy) - Dominique Wilkins (Tall, Consistent)
Falstaf- Bill Walton (Drink if you've got buck teeth)
Old Milwaukee - Moses Malone (Milwaukee Great)
Hamm's - Rick Barry (Rockin' the 70's)
Coors - Alex English (Rocky Mountain Delight)

Man I just came across this and it's tuff. I like the sound of those new school beers, but those old school players are tempting. I'm young enough that I grew up Idolizing some of those players, but not young enough that the new ones trump them :-P

Thanks Jared. Finally an NBA fan. It was pretty fun writing this post.

lol Sorry to dissapoint you KC, I'm more of a fan of the beer association then the basketball one. I haven't followed basketball for years now. In fact if it wasnt for some of my family members I wouldn't know anyone on that new school list.
