Yes, I Am Ready for Some Football.
For those interested in the inane details of my life:
My perfect fall Sunday would involve waking up at 9:45am to update my fantasy team, planting my butt on the couch with the TV on & my laptop open to StatTracker, opening a breakfast beer, ordering in a large Tomato Pie half grandmother/half meat-lovers (my guy is with me – don’t worry I don’t eat the entire pizza to myself), and not moving for the next 10+ hours. No, despite the many deals available on Sundays at local sports bars to lure in patrons, I prefer to stay in my PJs where the beer is free & the tv is always tuned to my preferred game (thank god for the NFL package!)
However, Saturday and Monday football are totally different stories. For Trojan games and Monday Night Football I’m all about taking advantage of $2 beers, the company of friends, and greasy delicious bar food.
So, whether you’re like me and want to stay in Sundays, or head out all football weekend long, there are a great number of bars with drink & food deals (plus giant flat screen TVs + the NFL package). Even better, most of these are not your typical ‘Sports Bars’ so they are less likely to be completely packed with rowdy stupid Raider fans (go Seahawks!)
