I gotta hear what y'all think about this:

Millions of baseball fans have chugged Milwaukee's finest suds while grilling burgers and brats before Brewers games over the last quarter century -- and it turns out every one of them was imbibing illegally.

A city ordinance passed in 1980 -- and which city officials are about to override -- says it's unlawful for anyone to drink alcoholic beverages in public parking lots or public structures.

That would include the parking lots around Miller Park, which was built on the site of the old County Stadium instead of downtown in part because the team wanted to maintain the tailgating tradition.
