16 = 20 in Seattle

The Seattle Seahawks may have a losing record.
But the team's beer-drinking fans are starting off
with a win.The team investigated after a video
posted on YouTube demonstrated that the large
and small beers sold at Qwest Field contained
the same amount of liquid — even though one
was marked 20 ounces and cost $1.25
more than the one marked 16 ounces.

The findings? The cups that were marked as
containing 16 oz. actually held 20 oz. of beer.

First and Goal, the organization that runs Qwest
Field, says it will try to find out how long the
smaller-beer drinkers have been getting an extra
4 ounces. At the next game the stadium is selling
all 20-oz. domestic brews at the 16-oz. price.
