As you may of heard, the legendary (I use that term loosely) soft drink Surge is once again available for purchase and internet kind of exploded. The beverage, only available through Amazon.com, sold out by 11 a.m. on Monday. Luckily for everyone, they quickly restocked their inventory.
Of course, a couple hours later, they sold out again.
I have yet to make my Surge purchase, but trust me it's coming. It got me, and probably a lot of other people thinking, what other drinks should companies bring back? Well, here is my list:
1. Ecto Cooler
As a child of the late 80's/early 90's, my obsession with "The Ghostbuster" runs deep. In 1987, Hi-C partnered up with the franchise to help promote the series with development of the delicious drink they called Ecto-Cooler. The citrus flavored drink found its way into hearts and lunchboxes of millions until it was discontinued in 2001. If Hi-C were smart, they would release Ecto Cooler to the masses again before 2014 is over to help celebrate the 30th anniversary of the original film. I can dream.
The Eastern Michigan Eagles football team opened their season on Saturday and wanted to make a big entrance in front of their home fans by sledgehammering a brick wall during pregame introductions. Unfortunately, it was a failed effort. Apparently, the organizers of this entrance did not take into account that brick walls are actually pretty tough to knock down.
Rejoice football fans! Real, actual games that count towards something are finally starting. Tonight, the college football season will begin with a full slate of games, including a big game between No. 21 Texas A&M and No. 9 South Carolina. This season will be full of great games with fans everywhere heading through the turnstiles to check the game out in person. I decided to take a look at which games have been the top selling at TicketNetwork.com, and needless to say, our Top 10 games are full of incredible matchups:
1. Advocare Texas Kickoff: LSU Tigers vs. Wisconsin Badgers
The top-selling game on our list pits two of the top 25 teams against each other at NRG Stadium this Saturday, August 30. Not a huge surprise to see this game at the top of the heap, LSU fans are known as one of the best traveling fan bases in college football, and Houston is only a four hour drive from the LSU campus.
2. Cowboys Classic: Florida State Seminoles vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys
Wherever Florida State goes this season will be a big deal, and their season opener at AT&T Stadium in Dallas against the Oklahoma State Sooners is the biggest. Just like LSU in our top-ranked game, OSU has a rabid fan base and will be out in full-force to see if their Cowboys can take down the top-ranked Seminoles.
3. Chick-fil-A College Kickoff: Alabama Crimson Tide vs. West Virginia Mountaineers
Once again, the Alabama Crimson Tide are among the favorites to win the National Championship come January. Their journey starts at the Georgia Dome this Saturday against the West Virginia Mountaineers.
