Stadiumspotting: Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium

Alrighty, I’ve been waiting for this all year.  This week Kansas States heads to my new hometown in Austin to take on the Texas Longhorns at Darrel K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.  It’s going to be another epic battle because that’s what the Wildcats to me and my heart.  The spread is 10 points in Texas favor.  I don’t know why but I’m okay with that.  Kansas State have been underdogs all year around.  Amongst the gamesmanship, this will be my first trip to the stadium.  I’m very curious how the Longhorns treat visitors as well as how they whole football experience stacks up there. It’s gonna be a great time.

Barspotting: Kicking Off A New Town of Barspotting at Doc’s Backyard

Alrighty, football is here and you know what that means: Barspotting!  For those of you not familiar with how Barspotting works, I basically tool around town and find places to watch college football then rate whether it’s worth it to check it out yourself.  This year will be different because I’m in a whole new town.  So I get to find a whole bunch of new bars review and also get the added benefit of finding my way around town.  The first ever Austin edition of Barspotting will feature Doc’s Backyard in Sunset Valley, well, because they are real close to me.  Not only that but they have a supposedly real tasty Chicken Fried Avacado.  Let’s check out Saturday’s lineup.

Pick It And Stick It: Gopher More

Okay so in case you’ve heard we are heading up north.  Yup, it’s gonna be chilly but hopefully not as chilly as some of the picks we have this week.  There’s only 25, our lowest of the year so far, and we’re feeling the pinch of lower confidence points.  Pick well, every one.  Dig down deep and go for more.  You’ll need to be spot on for this set and probably the rest of the sets.

Barspotting: The Twin Cities Beckon

You know, I don’t know what it is with the travelling all of the sudden, but here we go again on our own.  Going down that only road that, well, leads straight from Kansas City to Minneapolis/St. Paul.  Otherwise I-35.  I’ve been (unofficially) down I-35 to Austin, Texas and now I’m heading up north to check out Minnesota.  Prior obligations find myself out there and I’m hoping to get some football down while I do it.  A little birdie told me that Minnesota is hosting Northwestern for homecoming so I might check it out.  Otherwise, it might be a great sports bar in town or more than likely Hooters at the Great Mall of America.  God I hope it’s the homecoming game.

Barspotting: Stadiumspotting Returns to Lawrence

Memorial Stadium

But not for the Sunflower Showdown.  My beautiful and football lovin’ girlfriend is letting the Purple Yeti hitch a ride with her and her bid-ness down to Memorial Stadium for the big Oklahoma vs Kansas game.  Both teams roll into the game suffering a loss to Texas and Colorado respectively so one of them will bounce back.  Which one will it be?  We’re not sure.  How many of us will be sober?  Well, we know the answer to that one.  At any rate, we’ll report on every debaucherous action, on and off the field.
