Gross.

Meh, it's not like I buy anything from the concession stands there anyway.

If this means they'll have Dr. Pepper, that'd be awesome. If it's just Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and Root Beer I'll be disappointed.

Does anyone remember when you had the choice between Pepsi or Coke? Ah, Freedom. I miss you.

Too bad...

Also, its a weird situation with Dr Pepper, but I believe it won't be coming to Verizon Center. Dr Pepper is outside the US, a Coke product... Inside the US is Dr Pepper/Snapple Group.

Cash money!

Well, this just puts me over the top.

I'm done.

Dr. Pepper isn't owned by Pepsi.

Mini-bottles in the wife's purse still works well. 4 Captain Morgan minis and a large Coke set you straight until the 2nd intermission.

I only get hilariously expensive beer when I go anyways.

Not exclusively. Some Pepsi fountains have Dr. Pepper, but not all. Some Coke fountains also have Dr. Pepper (including most of the new "Freestyle" machines).

Dr. Pepper/Snapple has the rights for the Consol Energy center in Pittsburgh, so it's sold there (along with RC Cola, which it now owns).

CapitalsCupFantasy 11-28-2012 01:45 PM

RC Cola....would be funny to see that on tap. What's next, TAB and Fresca?

Langway 11-28-2012 01:49 PM

...but what about the tiki heads?

Chimaera 11-28-2012 02:42 PM

I get tanked before as I know what the result will be

When I was a kid, I had a paper route, and mowed lawns for extra cash. One day, I bought some RC cola and was drinking it watching tv, when my Mom came in and asked me why I hadn't bought Coca-Cola?

I had a good reason: RC cola was .25 cents a bottle; Coke was .50 cents. I got 2 for 1 with RC.

And she told me a story: RC cola's original bottling plant was in Detroit, and her brother (my Uncle) worked there. The employees could get free soda if they wished, be he never did, because the plant was so filthy.

That was the last RC I drank. I know now that that plant closed many years ago, and some other place makes it using the original formula, and probably in a clean plant.
