    That's a great story. Anderson has a great story from now on. I'm just glad they weren't delivering frozen chicken...

    If Coors Lite is really "beer." that's more of a suicide incentive than preventative.

    I thought Coors was releasing a new beer called Lifesaver...

    I can’t remember the last time I had a Coors, but this is a great reminder that “big beer” is made up of people in the end.

    Water is life too, ya know ( before anyone gets upset, of course its the quality of the human action that matters here, not the liquid)

    This is just one of those stories that really brings a smile to your face. Suicide is never the answer. I'm just glad this guy had the presence of mind to give a damn and help out someone truly in need.

    That would have pushed me over the edge and made me jump...

    The Coors salesman told the jumper "it can't be all that bad, have you ever tried a Coors ?" The jumper didn't believe him and came down for a taste.
