Church Group Protests Drinking on Game day

Among Sunday's excitement for the Superbowl was one group of protesters who hoped to convince alcohol buyers to go home empty handed.

 The group, who came from the Parish House Christ Center, says they have found religion as an alternative to what many consider the normal game day beverage.

Adolfo Cuevas Jr. said, "We're out here trying to tell people that there is, you know, life outside of existence; life outside of addiction and alcoholism, and that life is found only in Jesus Christ."

They chose Superbowl Sunday to protest, expecting many last-minute strip goers.
