Toast to Pat's legacy at

Pints for Pat


Prior to joining the Army, Pat would often ride his bike to Rúla Búla in Tempe during the day, sit in the dining room to relax and study his Cardinals playbook over a pint of Guinness.

One day, Pat showed up to Rúla Búla with his own drinking vessel: an Imperial 20-oz. Guinness pint glass engraved with his ASU football #42. He asked the bartender to keep the glass on the top shelf behind the bar so it could easily be located whenever he stopped by.

Shortly after 9/11, Pat made the decision to leave behind his football career and join the Army Rangers. After his last visit to Rúla Búla, he left his #42 glass with the bartender, along with a promise to return. Pat’s pint glass remains on the shelf of Rúla Búla’s back bar today.
