And when they move the Cardinals to Brussels, don’t say you weren’t warned about the Belgian menace. 6/11 changed everything.
Update: Matthewe Yglesias asks the important question:
Obviously, like all red-blooded Americans I'm outraged by the idea of a Belgian company with the silly name InBev purchasing our beloved Budweiser. Still, wouldn't it be kind of great if the Belgians started turning Budweiser into something more like the, um, vastly superior product they have in Belgium?That would be a nice consequence from the sale, but it won't happen. Most Americans like the way AH products taste now. They won't see any quality improvements as being better. They're used to their Bud just the way it is! For example, I've tried giving my father-in-law some of the best beer in the world and he still simply perfers Miller Lite. The good stuff sits in his fridge until I come over or until he can pawn one off on an unsuspecting friend.
