 Top 5 Opening Day Traditions

 

 

Happy Opening Day, everyone! Enjoy the American tradition of baseball and beer with these top 5 opening day traditions.

 

1.       Playing hooky from work

The inexplicable sickness, the car problem, the random disappearance. Whatever your chosen method for skipping work is, Opening Day is when you perfect the skill of skipping work in the name of baseball. Of course the Wizard and Budweiser’s recent efforts (along with all thousands of signatures) have helped begin the process for a petition to make Opening Day a holiday. Until then, the rest of us will continue the long-held tradition of heading off to the stadium instead of the office on this day.

 

2.       Hot dogs

Fuel is required for all that baseball watching and celebration. Most often, that comes in the form of a hot dog. Or two. Or five. Coincidentally, hot dogs also pair perfectly with a beer. American lagers and pilsners act as a palate cleanser while allowing the dish’s flavors to take center stage.

 

 

3.       Clydesdales

The Budweiser Clydesdales are a symbol of Americana. Combined with the Opening Day ceremonies and parade, nothing feels more patriotic.

 

4.       Cracking open a cold one

Beer and baseball. Probably few things in life go together as perfectly as this pair. When the first ball is pitched and that first Budweiser is popped open it’s officially baseball season.

 

5.       Tailgating

The best tradition is the one that ties together all of the above into one free for all of tradition. That’s what happens when the first tailgate of the season occurs - it’s a convergence of friends, hope, Budweiser and baseball.
