The fan popularly known as ‘beer girl’ is back and this time she’s turning her attention to the NFL.
Megan Lucky built a reputation for her ability to down pints of beer, showcasing her indisputable talent at the US Open in 2021 and 2022.
While tennis is her usual bag, ‘beer girl’ is now adding football to her list having appeared at the Monday Night Football clash between the New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills.
It was the Jets who won the AFC East clash by a scoreline of 22-16, however ‘beer girl’ enjoyed a victory of her own in a chugging contest at the MetLife Stadium.
Onlookers not familiar may have thought the odds were stacked against Lucky owing to hers and her challenger’s differing frames, but it didn’t matter.
Boasting 119,000 followers on Instagram, Lucky had previously hinted at taking her talents to another sport after being shunned at the US Open this year.
After finding fame at the tournament in 2021 and 2022, Lucky was in attendance again this year but revealed to her followers that her efforts had not made it onto the big screen at Flushing Meadows.
She said: “I just want to address the elephant in the room real quick.
“And for whatever reason, whoever was in charge didn’t want me on the jumbotron [big screen] this year.
“I don’t know their reasons, they didn’t share them with me, but I still had a lot of fun [at the US Open] and I’m at peace with it.
“I know the universe has a plan for me and like I said last time, ‘beer girl’ is a part of me.
“Maybe I’ll take her to another sport that wants her fun-loving energy soon, so look out for that.
“But as for now, this is not the end, it is only the beginning of a new era.”
Posting footage of her latest public victory, she added: “You guys really didn’t think I’d leave you hanging this year, did you?
PS. The beers are bigger here, OK?”
