Just about everyone could use another beer in the COVID era and we finally found the motherload. Per Action Network, Bud Light is offering a $20 gift card to anyone who selects Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew in the first round.
I’ve been working hard to be your first pick in fantasy this year, and @BudLight is making your decision easier. When you pick me first, tweet a screenshot of your pick with #budlightminshewdraft and #sweepstakes and you could win a case worth of Bud Light! pic.twitter.com/eG1B0yyJOr— Gardner Minshew (@GardnerMinshew5) August 25, 2020
First off, anyone willing to take a quarterback in the first round has no intentions on winning their fantasy league or set up a fake league just to make a run at this promotion.
This is a rare opportunity for folks with no real clue or honest interest in Fantasy Football to get some of your $20 investment back without actually doing anything. Why stay up until one in the morning scouting sleeper picks for the $200 prize money you’ll never win?
Might as well throw your ass in the pot for 20 bucks of booze!
Have to admit the “you could win” sweepstakes feel like the McDonald’s scam of a Monopoly that no one ever won $hit in.
There are reportedly 250 winners to come and considering the massive audience for Fantasy Football and the nation’s love for beer… you aren’t winning.
JUST IN: @budlight announces that fans who draft Jaguars quarterback @GardnerMinshew5 in the first round of their Fantasy Football draft will have a chance to win a free case (in the form of a $20 gift card) of Bud Light. 😂— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) August 25, 2020

We willingly throw money at the local gas station clerk for a 1-in-a-trillion chance to win the lottery. Addicted gamblers.
I guess we did say we WANNA BE LIKE MIKE. Go grab Gardner first round and let’s get hammered! #UncleRico
