I posted this in the Michigan bar locator sticky, but, quite reasonably, no response. Does anybody know where I could watch the Michigan-EMU game (with volume) this Saturday in Fargo, ND? It's an 11 am CT game on Big Ten Network. Good news is the Gophers aren't playing at the same time, to the extent that matters.
Where to watch EMU game in Fargo?
Any ideas in Gainesville, while we're at it? I'd prefer something close to the stadium so I can catch the Gators-Volunteers after the real game.
Perhaps the answer to your question is the absence of responses. I highly doubt we have regular Fargo ppl here. Just go to the one bar in town and ask to turn their rabbit-eared TV to the BTN. Though unless there's satellite, you'll likely get Minnesota or something
Along these lines, is there any way to get Michigan games or BTN games streaming on your computer?
You need to have certain TV providers to use it, though.
If you can't get BTN To Go, then you can usually find any game on sites like www.firstrowsports.eu or www.myp2p.bz ... just be smart about it (don't download software, try not to click on ads, block pop-ups).
I'm going to get a hefty cut of this Nigerian prince's family fortune after I gave him my Social Security and account numbers so he can move it into the US.
Best business move I ever made.
Not if I get there first.
Prince Mbokwe is so generous.
....that dude I helped out so he could get millions over to the US from his account at the Singapore branch of HBSC?
Ok thanks guys!
Have people had good experiences with it?
Working with the Nigerian government to get the prince's funds out of the bank? I've sent in my $2,000 to get the funds released, so I expect mine to come any day. Unfortunately for the prince, I'm going to keep all $200m for myself. Screw that guy.
then pull out your phone, call and see who gets BTN. ask if they will put it on if you come in, etc.
Maybe hoping MGoFargoSlut will magically appear in this thread and invite him over for the game?
Your best bet is any of the Buffalo Wild Wings in the FM area - you may need to ask someone to put it on but they'll have it. If you're downtown, OB Sports Zone would be your choice.
Go to my parents' house. They live on Prairiewood. They've got satelite so they have BTN. This way my mother can watch her precious Huskers. Make sure to bring a gift. Old Man likes him some Petron for his margaritas he so zealously makes. Mom tends to be more of a wine person. If they've gone to the lake for the weekend, ask them for the security code to the garage. Offer to wash any dishes in the sink. There's a univesal remote that handles all six of their silly entertainment systems. You'll want "watch satellite." Use the bathroom upstairs. If you go downstairs, my old room should still possess some old Michigan trinkets like a 1993 regional NCAA Tournament size small t-shirt and a poster of the 1999-2000 admissions standards and data. These MUST be displayed for good luck if watching a Michigan game in the house.
you sure you want to let him into your parent's house?
Dude's from Fargo and he likes Michigan. The only other people I know like that are me, my parents by association, my ex-girlfriend, and two other highly advanced girls who ended up attending. By my calculations, this guy has an 83.3% chance of being awesome.
I love it. I don't have many points because I rarely post, but I've been around for quite a while. Nevertheless, I'll probably forego disturbing your parents; though I appreciate the precise estimate of my awesomeness.
You see, I'm not from Fargo; but I'll be there for a wedding. And, despite my advanced age, I do know how to use Google. I'm not particularly indolent; rather, I thought a kind user, such as NDSU_Blue, would know the area well and could recommend a bar that not only subscribed to BTN, but would be happy - even eager - to put on the game for me, and perhaps a few other like-minded Michigan fans.
Major props to FgoWolve and NDSU_Blue. Thanks guys / gals.
Along the same lines, does anyone know where I can watch the EMU game in Ak Olong, Kyrgyzstan?
I just moved here. It's not that bad. Nothing like the movie that was filmed in Brainerd, MN. There actually is some civilization here (~200k counting the "metro" area). Cable here does not carry BTN so I had to get Dish.
Ok, and now it's my turn to ask. Where can I watch the game in Amsterdam? Serious question.
If you're outside the US it will work. I think it's 3 bucks a game. I'll be rocking it from Mexicali this weekend assuming the local sports book isn't carrying the game.
My concern is that my super high class hostel won't have a strong internet connection. And from what i hear, Amsterdam doesn't have a plethora of internet cafes, and I'm reluctant to step into "coffee shops" and ask if they have wifi.
...that Tailgators in Fargo is a great place to watch BTN games. I went to school in Fargo and watched many Michigan games there. Great food and atmosphere. The place is right off of Main Ave. and University Drive.
