To College-Themed Cans
A-B NOT HAILING THE VICTORS: Univ. of Michigan (UM) officials Friday said that A-B "has bent to legal pressure over its attempt to peddle 'dark blue and yellow' Bud Light cans." UM Dir of Public Affairs Kelly Cunningham said that school attorneys "sent a letter of complaint to Anheuser-Busch on July 22 over the campaign," which "included U-M colored beer cans and T-shirts listing the football season schedule on the back." Cunningham said that UM attorneys "have since heard back and were assured the cans won't be sold anywhere in U-M's community, which the university considers to be the entire state of Michigan" (Juliana Keeping, ANNARBOR.com, 8/21).
