I’m trying to figure out where I’ll watch the Cotton Bowl tomorrow, which comes on at the ridiculously early time of 10:30 AM. I could watch it at home, of course (and I may have to for the first quarter), but what fun is that? I want to watch my Hogs at a bar, hopefully with other Arkansas fans.
So I’m trying to figure out where. The Saucer doesn’t open until 5, so that’s not an option. Big Foot and McGuinness look like the top choices at this point. Wherever I go, it will have to be a bar with multiple TVs, because Tennessee and Wisconsin will be playing in the Outback Bowl at the same time.
Wonder if Calhoun’s will be open regular hours tomorrow? Seems like they’d have to be, if they’re going to call themselves a true sports bar, considering all the bowl games that are on. Not sure I’m willing to take the risk of the 14-block walk down there to find out though, when Big Foot and McG are much closer.
Hmmm… I could go to Big Foot and try one of their new 34 oz. mixed drinks while I watch the game. That might lead to an early collapse though, not good considering my trivia team plays that night at 7.
Any other Hog fans who plan on watching the game at a bar somewhere? Yes, I plan on wearing my Hog Hat.
