About The Pat Tillman Foundation & Pints for Pat
Prior to joining the Army, Pat would often ride his bike to Rúla Búla his favorite Irish Pub in Tempe, AZ. Pat spent many days sitting in the dining room while relaxing with a pint of Guinness and studying his Arizona Cardinals playbook. One day, he brought his own Imperial 20-oz Guinness pint glass to the pub engraved with his ASU football #42. He asked the bartender to keep the glass behind the bar where it was stored on the top shelf so it could easily be located when he stopped by for a pint.
Shortly after the attacks on 9/11, Pat made the decision to leave his football career behind and join the Army Rangers. Prior to deploying, he came in for a pint and rather than taking his #42 glasses with him, he asked the bartender to keep it on the shelf until he returned. After the tragedy of his death, Pat’s pint glass remained on the shelf of Rúla Búla’s until its closure in 2021. In Pat’s honor, Steve Goumas, owner of Rúla Búla Irish Pub, started this event to bring together friends, family, and those who wish to celebrate his legacy.
Help us continue the tradition by joining this Pints for Pat event! Together, let’s raise a pint for Pat!
