Jimmy Clausen Digs Natty Light

Why not? Choice of the collegiate champion, right? It’s cheap, it’s easy, it’s perfect. And frankly, Jimmy is just getting a raw deal. As tipster JS emails in, Clausen was cited for transporting alcohol. That straight up has to be the lamest citation out there (next to urinating in someone’s mailbox while hammered). It also looks like someone must really be out to get this kid. From the South Bend Tribune, via FanHouse:

It has recently come to light that the University of Notre Dame freshman quarterback was cited for transporting alcohol as a minor in connection with a June 23 incident at a local liquor store.

Indiana State Excise Police cited the 19-year-old Clausen and a 23-year-old outside the Belmont Beverage store at 1621 South Bend Ave., near the Notre Dame campus, police said.

The 23-year-old entered the store and bought two 1.75-liter bottles of Smirnoff vodka and a 200-milliliter bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey, police said, as well as a case containing 30 cans of Natural Light beer.

$170 later, problem solved. And honestly, if this citation doesn’t show how jacked up our society is, then I don’t know what does. Kid’s old enough to drive, old enough to quarterback the Fighting Irish and deal with national media scrutiny, but he’s not old enough to drive with alcohol in the car? Gimme a break. Now this to go along with his arm trouble. That’s harsh.

    Can’t wait until USC vs Notre Dame at the Coliseum in 2008. QB battle of Mark Sanchez vs Jimmy Clausen. Mark will pick up the brewskies using his phony ID at the 901 Club and Jimmy will get them to the Coliseum.

    Unless Mitch Mustain is SC’s QB, then we’ll have to settle for Mitch’s mom to watch the game with Jimmy’s dad.

    Good grief. Does he also want to top those interesting Brady Quinn photos as well?

    As much as I hate ND (and, dear God, I sure do) this is a lame bust. That said, the photo is priceless. I’m sending it to every ND alum/fan I know…even the few straight ones.
