All-Encompassing Which Bar You Watching At Thread

Rather than 20 threads on this today here's one thread that should remain on top until gametime. Let the other mgobloggers where you plan to be.

On top of a Llama, with the Dahli Lama, and Outkast is playing live music. 

We're currently in Taiwan, but we'll fly our magic carpet to an Even Cooler Place To Make You Jealous(er) soon.

We've got the ghost of Bo too. (We brought Woody, but he kept smashing the TV and punching Clemson fans, so fuck him.) The ghost of Aaron Hernandez Past is here, along with some random Florida Co-Ed. 

Also, Loius XIV. He keeps saying "C'est la vie. Cyst la Morte." I think that's dark even for me tho.

On my laptop in the bedroom; our sun room was destroyed by Hurricane Michael. Truth is that I am not always the best company during games anyway. Especially with my daughter making jibes every time Michigan looks vulnerable. She plays soccer and cannot see the charm of large people putting on too many clothes to smack each other around.

And--since you didn't ask--I am trying not to see it as cataclysmically bad luck that the grocery store no longer carries Bell's Two Hearted Ale, which I try to swizzle during important Michigan games. Instead I will have to drink locally, with Tally's own 850 Pale Ale. If you're ever in the area get in touch and we'll go over and lift a glass to celebrate what I really want to believe will be today's great result.

My telekinesis with Harbaugh does not work when other humans are around.

Therefore, for the sake of getting the W, I will watch from a secret underground bunker behind 4 inch steel doors rendering interruption from other beings impossible.

Anyone know of a M-friendly bar in Tampa (actual Tampa, not "Tampa Bay")? Hell, I'd settle for Big10 friendly.

The local club here chose Ferg's, which is in the ass-end of St Pete and a good hour away for anyone in the city of Tampa. Not exactly a great, inclusive, central choice for everyone in the bay area.

The bar map lists Bungalow, which is not a correct entry - I've been there a few dozen times for games and not a single M fan but myself has shown up.

The last game I watched away from my house (other than games I attended) was the Mich / Alabama game with Denard.

i was such an insufferable asshole that I vowed to never watch another one in public.

Now I'm an insufferable asshole in my living room with my family. They know it's just daddy's addiction. Alos, my 13 year old daughter is on her way to be as insufferable as me I love it.

Currently watching at my football-hating in-laws in Albany NY.  If anyone has any Capital District recommendations in the next hour, I’d welcome them!

From the couch in my apartment. Since I live in Switzerland, I don't go out for the games. I will drink my 12 pack (maybe by the first half) and watch with a view of the Mt. Blanc.

Watching at a dive bar in Saginaw. Last time I watched The Game at a dive bar in Saginaw? 2011. I would have picked the same bar but, alas, it is no more. I think I found the closest approximation of that magical bar, however. I'm not superstitious but Im also leaving nothing to chance.

First half in my family room with my MGoPoodle (who always cheers with me), second half with my 96-year old father (who is tough to communicate with because of his poor hearing but has cheered for Mich on nearly every televised game since I was a freshman).

Bunch of fucking Buckeyes came into The Slider House in Nashville near the end of the 3rd quarter. It's a Muchigan bar. Sign was clearly posted on the outside. They came when they knee the game wss in hand foe only one reason. To start shit.

They started cheering aftrr a TD and then tried to do the OH-IO cheer, which I would have nothing of. Told the loudest fuck to shut up and that if he tried this shit in Columbus in an OSU bar as a Michigan fan he'd get his ass kicked. He had nothing to say to that.

He and I went back and forth until of course he ran out of coherent thoughts and asked me to step outside. My wife, kids, brothers, nieces and nephews all witnessed this mouth breather, which I'm glad they did. They now know why I hate them.

Later, after the asshole was kicked out, another fan cheered as Patterson was hurt. I told him to get the fuck out, and he shut up with the encouragement of one normal, human buckeye fan.

My team let me down today. I shouldn't have to put up with this shit every time we play fO$U. 

Get your shit together Harbaugh.
