Sports Bars

Not knowing anyone else really well that likes football, I'm thinking about starting to watch my Sunday games at a local sports bar, maybe mulligans.

Never been to a bar for any purpose other than picking up girls or just getting hammered.

Anything I should know about sports bar culture going in?

I just don't want to scream at the television by myself anymore.

Most decent sports bars have the NFL Sunday Ticket (the Directv package that shows all the games), so usually there are a lot of fans of out of market teams who frequent these bars. Fans may try to "reserve" tv's for their teams, and if the bar has a first-come-first-serve policy on the tv's, you could get screwed. I would suggest getting there at least a half and hour or so before the game starts to assure you have a good seat and a clear view of a tv.

When I lived in Florida I always went to my favorite bar to watch the Skins, but seating was at a premium as well. If I got there right before kickoff, often times I would have to stand to get a decent view of a tv showing our team. You may want to call the bar you plan on visiting and ask what their set up is for the games. Of course this Monday you won't have a problem since it's the only game on.

The only other advice I have is to eat wings, drink cold beer, and just be sure you make fun of anyone wearing a Cowboys jersey.

Unless you're a smoker. Then it's a minus.

Is being a smoker liberal, or conservative?

Well, it could go both ways dependent upon stress level. Richer people, CEOs, movie stars, etc live fast paced, high stress lives (many of who are conservative) I would say they are prone to be smokers.

People from poor urban, poor rural and lower income areas also live stressful lives and are also prone to smoking as a form of stress relief.

My verdict: 50% chance of being liberal or conservative

(And this whole thing is 100% bullshit)
