Michigan Attorney General, Dana Nessel, has apologized for drinking too much and getting sick during the Michigan-Michigan State football game in East Lansing on October 30, 2021.
According to Dana Nessel, “she drank two bloody marys on an empty stomach while tailgating before the game, causing her to feel sick.”
Here is Dana Nessel’s official statement on the incident she titled, “My official statement on ‘Tail-gate Gate.”
Before the big game, I attended a tailgate on an empty stomach. Much to my surprise, MSU tailgate’s tend to have more alcohol than food, so I thought it seemed like a good idea to eat 2 Bloody Mary’s, since as long as you put enough vegetables in them, it’s practically a salad. As it turned out, this was not a brilliant idea. Also, I might be a terrible bartender. I proceeded to go to the game (which I’m told Michigan definitely won!) and started to feel ill. I laid low for a while, but my friends recommended that I leave so as to prevent me from vomiting on any of my constituents.
I had a few folks help me up the stairs and someone grabbed a wheelchair so as to prevent me from stumbling in the parking lot. Like all smart people attending festivities where drinking occurs, I had a designated driver. I went home, fell asleep on the couch, and my wife threw some blankets on me and provided me with some water and Tylenol for what she knew would be a skull-crushing hangover the next day.
She blamed the Bloody Marys.
That is why you can’t start your tailgate too early or you will end up like the Attorney General here.
I know her stomach was in shambles for the next couple of days. Always eat before you drink is my motto and should have been hers.
