Some Ecuadorian soccer fans paid homage to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh with an epic chant at the World Cup Sunday.
Ecuador brought the pain to host nation Qatar with a two-nil thrashing that was more dominant than the score line suggests. After their second goal, Ecuadorian fans began to chant “queremos cerveza,” Spanish for “we want beer,” in the stadium.

The video spread like wildfire. Alcohol is illegal in Qatar, with consumption punishable by flogging. Whom amongst us wants to watch sports when sober, especially when the sport in question is soccer?
There appeared to be some relief on the way when FIFA and Qatar announced that alcohol would be available on a limited basis inside stadiums at the event. But just days before the tournament began, they reversed course, and the stadiums throughout the tiny gulf nation will in fact be dry.

Budweiser, which had produced nearly $77 million worth of beer for the tournament, announced it will be giving all the beer away to the winning country. Here’s hoping Team USA comes out on top so Scoops can enjoy a week’s worth of free bud heavies!

As for those Ecuadorians, they’re free to come party at the Daily Caller offices any time. We’ll crack open a few cold ones and watch some real football, and maybe even some “football” too.
