If you thought your bar tab was bad this weekend … there’s no way it topped Bruce Barnum’s — ’cause the Portland St. head coach revealed this week he dropped $14,000 to pay for fans’ beers on Saturday!!
The coach — who promised supporters he’d pick up ALL of their suds if they showed up to PSU’s game against Western Oregon — showed off the receipt Tuesday … and it’s pretty staggering.
Barnum ended up paying $14,448 for 786 Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPAs and 1,260 Coors Lights — a fairly shocking number, considering only about 3,000 fans showed up!
Of course, we’re pretty sure Barnum was happy to foot the bill … ’cause, after all, his team did beat the Wolves 21-7 in a laugher.
Unclear if Barnum is planning similar things for PSU’s upcoming games — but, hey, can’t mess with something that’s working, right?
Next game for Portland State is Saturday against Montana State … come thirsty???
