As a diehard Eagles fan, I was psyched about Fox flexing the Eagles-Packers game to the afternoon, and was really looking forward to watching it. I went pheasant hunting in the morning, got home an hour before the kickoff, started up some charcoal in the chimney starter to grill chicken wings during the game, poured a saison out of the kegerator, sat down, turned the tv on.....and its the Lions-Cardinals.
so funny because the exact opposite thing happened to my neighbor, a diehard Lions fan - swapped to the Eagles at the last hour.
I work with a guy from Green Bay. We get very few games in dallas, but we did get the the last three Green Bay games. Two blowouts that switched. He was pissed that he couldn't watch, but happy for the wins.
When I first moved here I would go to bars to watch the Niners. I ended up at a hooters that is walking distance and had $2.50 25oz coors during the games (don't want to hear it) and the food at hooters is pretty cheap. The lady put a stop to that after week 3. No other bars are close enough to walk and those close by are all $6-7 drafts. $50-60 a week to watch the games is not worth it. Can't do Sunday ticket in my complex without forking over a $250 deposit and $250 fee for dish mounting.
