U of Iowa Chick “Vodka Sam” Wins Labor Day Weekend…Tries To Run On Field, Gets Arrested, Blows .341 In Jail, Tweets “Just Went To Jail #YOLO”
IOWA – Goudie, Samantha Lynne, 22 of Iowa City, IA for Public Intox at Kinnick Stadium at 1321 hours. Goudie was stopped for trying to enter the field. Goudie was unsteady on her feet. Goudie blew .341 PBT.
Vodka Sam, “the #1 drinker at the #1 party school in the country” -Vodka Sam.
All I know is that I need to party with this chick so badly that it physically hurts. Just absolutely killed every part of this story. The arrest. The BAC. The tweets. Everything straight down to the Twitter profile pic. It’s all so perfect that I almost think it’s all made up. They just don’t make girls like Vodka Sam everywhere, except at the nation’s top party school I guess.
Vodka Samm On 20/20
This interview is like watching Michael Jordan put on a Wizards uniform and hobble onto the court with old knees. Like watching Ali in ’80 getting beat down easily by Larry Holmes. Just seeing the legend you have built up so much in your mind seem human for the first time. You never thought MJ would lose a step. You never thought Ali’s punches would slow down. You never thought Vodka Samm would admit she made mistakes and stop drinking. It’s tragic. But at the same time it opens up the floodgates on so many magical memories….

The Daily Iowan Interviews Vodka Samm
Samantha Goudie is speaking out for the first time since skyrocketing to internet fame as “Vodka Samm” in early September. The 22-year-old University of Iowa senior made national headlines after she was arrested with a .341 blood alcohol content at a Hawkeye football game in August, and tweeted about it from jail. The story that lit social media ablaze turned Samantha’s own world inside out. And now she’s ready to talk about it.
Ok kind of feel a little bad for Vodka Sam now. Got to be rough to become an infamous internet celeb in today’s age where millions of blogs are just lying in wait. So you got a little drunk. You ran on the field then got arrested and blew a 0.341. You tweet Just Went To Jail #YOLO and blow up Twitter. You made a ton of Vines of you getting absolutely hammered and your entire Twitpic and Facebook account is you posing with vodka bottles. Whatever. It’s college. Everyone makes mistakes. And were these even really mistakes? In my eyes Vodka Sam was just repping the newly crowned #1 party school in the nation, and doing it damn well.
PS – The metaphor about her hometown being home to one of the curviest roads in the world which is like the path of her life literally blew my mind, well played Daily Iowan journalist, or should I just call you Diane Sawyer?
U. of Iowa President Releases Statement: “Vodka Sam Is Not Who We Are”
Des Moines – The woman who attracted national headlines for registering a blood-alcohol level more than four times the legal limit to drive after an arrest at a campus football game caused University of Iowa President Sally Mason frustration and concern, Mason said Friday.
Samantha Lynne Goudie, 22, registered a blood-alcohol content of 0.341 and was arrested for public intoxication Saturday at Kinnick Stadium before Iowa’s 30-27 loss to Northern Illinois. The Twitter account linked to Goudie — @Vodka_samm — led to the nickname Vodka Sam in national coverage that included the New York Post labeling her “The World’s Drunkest College Student.”
“It’s sad that one student and one student’s behavior shapes the image of 30,000 other students,” Mason said in an interview with The Des Moines Register. “I feel very, very concerned about the young student that had that level of alcohol in her blood. I’m very concerned for her health, safety and well-being. “There’s no doubt that there’s a problem there.”
“That’s not who we are,” Mason said.
Umm President Sally you sure about that bro? Because last time I checked the Princeton Review ranking of top party schools it would seem to me Vodka Sam is EXACTLY who you are. Hard drinking, hard partying, just don’t give a fuck. I bet like 90% of those 30,000 students who chose to go to U Iowa are just fine with that image, and the other 3,000 can go fuck themselves in the library. Seriously I just don’t get why all these administrators run away and hide from the reputation of being a really fun school. It’s called admissions, learn about it some time.
