Milb -The Frisco RoughRiders, the Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, are winding up for a thirst-quenching haymaker with the introduction of “Rougie’s Red PUNCH.” The new alcoholic energy drink, named in recognition of former RoughRider Rougned Odor’s iconic punch in Sunday’s Rangers game, will be available for a limited time at Dr Pepper Ballpark’s Bull Moose Saloon beginning this upcoming weekend when the RoughRiders host the San Antonio Missions beginning Friday, May 20.
The beverage is the perfect blend of ingredients made as an homage to Odor, who played for the Riders in parts of 2013 and 2014. It contains fruit punch (in honor of his prodigious right hook), an energy drink (perfect for those looking to embody Odor’s ferocious and frenetic style of play), and a secret ingredient from Odor’s native Venezuela (Rougie’s Red PUNCH will be available to fans 21-and-older only!).
“Odor is a feisty, energetic player, and we have come up the perfect drink to honor him,” said RoughRiders Executive Vice President and General Manager Jason Dambach. “Rougie’s Red PUNCH will punch you in the mouth with great flavor and an intense energy burst.”
Normally when something controversial happens in sports, everyone tries to just sweep it under the rug to the media, or just say what they think the “right” thing to say is. But the Texas Rangers’ organization is all in on this anti-Blue Jays deal, and I couldn’t approve more. This obviously isn’t the Rangers themselves promoting this drink, but it is their Double-A affiliate, where Odor previously played.
It’s a rare chance when you get to start a one-on-one brawl with the game’s biggest douche bag, and throwing the best punch in the history of baseball in his face is a once in a lifetime. Celebrate it. We’ve all been fantasizing about punching Bautista in the face for years, and Odor is the hero we all needed.
