Do What U Want.

Nearly every day since 1997, one man has been leading a quest to convince Pepsi to bring back Josta, its brief foray into the energy drink game before most of us knew what energy drinks were. It'd be more than a decade before we finally rode the bull for the first time.

But Josta was discontinued 20 years ago for a reason, chiefly because it kinda sucks. Even this one big fan of the caffeine overloaded sugar water has barely been able to find 2,000 people online interested in drinking the stuff again. So, yeah, it's pretty farfetched to think Pepsi would ever start making the stuff again.

Less hard to believe is the fact that there will always be a lot going on in North Texas on any given Thursday. I mean, take tonight, for example. You might want to grab a 5-hour Energy and saddle up. — Cory Graves
