Bobby V + Sapporo = BoBeer!

Postby Coppermine » Fri Nov 11, 2005 4:56 pm

TOKYO -- Bobby Valentine is so popular in Japan that he now has a beer named after him.

To commemorate Valentine guiding the Chiba Lotte Marines to their first Japan Series title in 31 years last month, Sapporo Breweries Ltd. has come out with BoBeer, a special version of its popular Black Label lager that's available only in Chiba.

The can features a cartoon likeness of Valentine giving a thumbs-up and saying "We're No. 1."

Valentine's Pacific League champion Marines swept the Central League champion Hanshin Tigers in the Japan Series last month.

The Marines have offered Valentine a new three-year contract. While he has yet to sign, Valentine said Thursday he was very pleased with the terms offered. The former New York Mets and Texas Rangers manager has been mentioned as a candidate for a few managerial openings in the majors.

I have to get some of this, because of my twofold love of beer and all things Bobby V.

I have read that it will be served in some bars and restaurants in NY. Didn't say which ones. I bet you can get it from a beer distributor in NY.

My favorite part is that "It's Magic!" in the corner.

I've got to go to Japan and have some BoBeer and BoBurgers.
