Okay, if you remember last week, we loved up on the Chappell’s sports junk but we recommended it if you want to see just one game. Welp this week we are going back to a place where you can watch multiple games and watch the best one on a big ole 71″ inch plasma television screen. That’s right, folks, we are going back to the Brooksider. If you remember in the past, it was the best for big screens and good lookin’ waitresses. Now we are going there not really to review, but to watch Florida take on Alabama and Texas take on Nebraska. We’re gonna get a table seat in front of the big screen and park there the whole day. So come on out and hopefully help us dodge the live music traffic after the Big 12 Championship is over.
The holiday weekend was rough on us and we barely made it back to Kansas City in time for some prime college football. Our hair was as greasy as the fried turkey we gobbled up for meal number two Thursday. But we made in, dropped off our stuff,, and headed to North Kansas City and Chappell’s Sports Museum and Restaurant. After running the gauntlet of food and family over the weekend it was nice to dig into the warmth and surprisingly quiet Chappell’s.
Last week was the beginning of Rivalry Week and now we are fully realizing its end. We had out schedule jacked up due to Thanksgiving and we’re sure you’ve had yours as well. It’s all for a good thing, however, as we should give thanks to what we have at least once a year. So in celebration of Thanksgiving and our shortened week, we are combining our Barspotting and Pick It and Stick It posts. And without further ado, we are Barspotting at Chappell’s Saturday. Yes, we’ll be just back in town to watch the Border War between Kansas and Missouri. We’re going up to North Kansas City and watchin some football as well as checking out their collection of sports memorabilia. Thankfully, we are just in time to go over the picks too and we hope you didn’t forget to make yours on this short week.
Rivalries are abound as just about every game on the list is a rivalry. So in between the turkey and gravy and shopping and family, check out these games. Some of them sound cool like the Duel in the Desert with Arizona and Arizona State. Some of them sound goofy like the Egg Bowl with Ole Miss at Mississippi State. No matter the name, they all mean something big to the teams and offer up a tradition only seen in college football. Big 12 wise, we missed out on the Nebraska and Colorado game but that’s alright. Nebraska won and it didn’t matter. We have the Bedlam series for Oklahoma State and Oklahoma tomorrow. The ‘Pokes will get a good shot at a BCS bid provided they win and Texas does next week against said Cornhuskers. The other major game for the Big 12 is the Border War. Kansas needs a win to be bowl eligible and Missouri needs a win to get 2nd in the North. Who’s gonna win? Come on out to Chappell’s and help us find out.
