Josh Stewart, the former city government reporter for The Capital has scooped us all from down in Virginia Beach with his new post at the Navy Times.

Yes, it seems that one of the Annapolis’ quirkiest events will be a little more dry this year now that St. John’s College has figured out a way to bu the booze and sell it themselves!

Stewart wrote,

This is pretty major, since the rite of spring is more about the accompanying lawn party than the actual sport, which very few if any of the attendees actually know how to play anyway.

Maryland has a recent history banning outside alcohol from important sporting events. The Preakness, proudly the scuzziest of the three legs of the Triple Crown, enacted a similar policy. The people revolted.

Watch out, St. John’s — they may come after you with mallets in hand.

What do you think? Will you attend the match this spring with an alcohol ban?
