Thankspotting: Home Away From Home For The Holidays

Last week was rough.  For lots of reasons.  Tailgating as hard as I did last weekend has left some lingering effects.  There’s also a sprinkle of great games from Thursday through Saturday.  So I decided that this week, it will be some major home spectating.  It’s a weird week for me anyway because this is the first Thanksgiving I’ve had away from home.  Hopefully I won’t miss Mom’s stuffing too much.  Let’s check out the games.

Stadiumspotting: Thursday Night Lights

This will be the first off day stadiumspotting for us and we’re super excited.  Kansas State hosts Nebraska for probably the last time ever and they are both undefeated.  The electricity will be huge in the Little Apple and we will be there to cover it.  Chances are we will make our way back to a bar Saturday but we’ll go ahead and tweet the location when we decided where.  Until then, it’s half day action at work then a split time of driving and football watching.  This Purple Yeti is more than pumped for the biggest game of the year for the Wildcats.

Barspotting: Coach’s Draws Up Our Football Watching Gameplan


We’re finally recovered from our road trip to Lawrence last week and now we’re ready to hit another barspot.  This week the KCCGD crew is heading down the state line and watching some spooky activities at Coach’s Bar and Grill.  A main stay for good number of years, they claim to be the oldest sports bar in Kansas City, we finally make our way to see if the place is scary.  Yup, it’s Halloween too so maybe we’ll dress up in our favorite sports announcer outfit and call the game live.  Who should we dress up as?  Let us know in the comments.

Notes:  Not that many big time games going on this weekend as we’re guessing that many people will be trick or treating instead.  Why did they schedule the bigger games for the evening?  Many fathers will be inside making the moms go out and take the kids while watching USC take on Oregon and Texas taking on Oklahoma State.  Sure there’s rivalries like the battle for the Ram Falcon Trophy, the Battle for the Rag, and the World’s Largest Cocktail Party, but outside of that it’s all Big 12 games.  Nothing much else here, good luck trying to pay attention while the kids ring the doorbell.
