The Michelob Ultra Weekend In Review That Isn’t (Yet) Sponsored By Michelob Ultra: April 30

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.31.18 PM

It was a long weekend at Casa de Duda. Despite it now being May, Chicago had some pretty nasty weather the past few days. It was cold, rainy, and violently uncomfortable due to the heater in my apartment breaking. Our landlord, being the stand up guy that he is, promises to have it fixed in the next week or so depending on when he feels like getting around to it.

I know you’re probably sitting on pins and needles trying to wrap your head around me being uncomfortable all weekend, but fear not. I used Michelob Ultra and Makers Mark to warm my mind, body, and soul all weekend long. It was difficult, but I got through it. Hopefully it stops raining this week and we can get a little sunshine in the Windy City. Many of you joined me in the pursuit to live the #UltraLife, and I wasn’t disappointed with the results.

I’m just going to assume that’s a Michelob Ultra in that pint glass. I got a really hearty chortle out of that Snapchat. Thanks, guy.

This dude was checking in from beautiful East Lansing, Michigan. Kid was just throwing darts at a local haunt and crushing Michelob Ultras. Michigan State and Michelob Ultra are a match made in heaven.

So a situation similar to this Snap happened to me on Friday night. The only difference? My friends are willing to convert. This dude needs to find some new drinking buddies.

Friend: I’ll have a Bud Light, please.
Me: Do you guys have Michelob Ultra here?
Waitress: Lol yeah.
Me: Great, I’ll have one of those please.
Friend: You know what? I’ll have a Michelob Ultra as well.

Tell your friends about the Ultra Life. I know there’s a lot of negative talk from the detractors, but nobody said spreading the good word of Michelob was going to be easy.

Pretty sure this was taken at the Verizon Center. Lots of love from DC this past weekend, and since my Red Wings didn’t even make the playoffs I have no shame in admitting that I’ve really been pulling for the Caps in that series. Keep ripping Ultras and pray Phil Kessel stops playing so well. That guy is gross.

Anyone in the Chicagoland area with a pool they want to invite me to? I’ve been looking to make a friend that has pool access but I’ve had zero luck. If I don’t find one soon I’m going to end up at the beach every weekend playing Spikeball. Not the worst fate, but sometimes a pool just feels better, ya know?

This is the second picture from the weekend where I have no choice but to shake my head in disgust. I think there are a ton of Mich Ultra guys out there who are getting flack from their friends for ordering the superior light beer. Don’t listen to the haters, they’re just background noise. War damn Michelob Ultra. Nice roast hand, by the way.

Duke lacrosse and Michelob Ultra. That’s not insufferable. That’s prestigious as fuck. Big Duke fan. Always have been, always will be.

Buckling up the baby.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.31.39 PM

How avant garde.

The fact that Michelob Ultra is just readily available at all of these professional sporting events further proves my point: it’s a beer for athletes.

Did the same thing Saturday night. Brought a Mich Ultra with me into the shower and mysteriously started doing squats and lunges while I washed my hair.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.32.07 PM

Your life is over, man.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.32.17 PM

Jesus H. Christ. That’s a lot of emptys. Good on ya.

If this guy isn’t telling people he’s Baker Mayfield at bars in Norman than he’s an idiot. Guy is a dead on ringer for Baker.

SMU grad? Yeah, I would too. I bet her parents are multi-millionaires.

Two slim cans and a screwdriver? I’m in. By the way, vodka orange juice might sneaky be the most aggressive drink order in the universe.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.33.02 PM

Cropped this chicks face out because she asked me to. Thanks for your support.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.33.24 PM

You have to respect the guy in the backseat crushing roadies. Always the most obnoxious/funny person in the car.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.50.15 PM

Wife her.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.50.25 PM

If you don’t think I tried meeting up with these two then you haven’t been paying attention.

Mich Ultras are basically an energy drink. Doesn’t technically count as “drinking.”

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.50.45 PM

Mommy Lights? Can I steal that? I’m stealing it.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.50.54 PM

I don’t hate this new “take a pic with an Ultra and some cleavage” trend.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.51.06 PM

Overalls and a choker. Let’s get hitched, I’m ready.

Screen Shot 2017-04-30 at 12.51.16 PM

Crocs might be the wave this summer.

This tweet made me feel like a giant piece of shit when I woke up at noon yesterday. I hope that dude shot a 70.

That’s all I’ve got from this past weekend. Keep ripping darts and crushing Mich Ultras. Hopefully these assholes at the Michelob corporate office give me a sponsorship before next weekend because I’m throwing a rager at my place on Saturday.
