Questions That Need Answering

What on EARTH is Tony doing, pouring his beer into a Cubs coffee mug? Is this some Cubs tradition I don't know about? Why did this mug even need to have a Cubs logo on it? Is that significant? SO MANY QUESTIONS.

Um... It could say a variety of things, like...

1. CUBS ROCK YO!
2. Cubs are only good to get drunk with.
3. Beer and cubs, that's all you need.
4. What's the deal Cubs, are you drunk?!

I prefer the "CUBS ROCK YO!" option.

Tony is from Chicago and is a cubs fan. Internet fanboys and fangirls became attached to the mug in season 1 because it was always on its desk. They keep it around just as a tribute to them.

Cubs are baby beers?

More importantly, why does he think he's too good to just drink it from the bottle?

I mean, from the looks of it, he's just drinking Budweiser. It's not like he needs to open up the flavors or bouquet.

Justin hit the nail on the head - Carlos Bernard (who plays Tony) is a huge Cubs fan. His character has had that mug from Day 1 and used it ever since, and you'll see him with that mug throughout multiple seasons of the show.

I'm glad to see you're making such good traction through 24's various seasons... Day 4 was fantastic, Day 5 was unbelievable.

J-wew: The Cubs do rock. That would be a good enough reason for me!

Justin Williams: Ohhhh. Thanks!

golfwidow: HAHA. That totally wins the award for Best Wrong Answer. I'll be snickering about that for days.

Thursday's Child: Yeah, that was the first and most pressing question for me. But not being a beer drinker, I thought perhaps I was just missing something.

Michael (_itguy): Ahh. I hope that I'll start picking up on some of this stuff once I'm caught up and can actually safely use Google to answer my questions. For now, I'm too afraid to join the 24 community, since there will probably be spoilers galore. Soon, though. We're halfway through Day 4 right now, and I hope to finish everything by the time I (potentially) head off to school in May.

As a beer drinker, and a person who brews his own beer...the only question I have is in line with what Thursday's Child already touched on...why is he drinking Budweiser? If the man is going to drink beer, it should at least be BEER, and not some cheap, crappy, "American Style" Lager (as they like to call it). Real American Beer is something like Sam Adams Boston Lager or Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. This stuff is poop water. Oh, and for all the Cubs fans...you should be insulted that he'd contaminate your team's mug with this stuff....

He's doing it because Tony Almeida is THE MAN. He does what he wants.
