    I'd bet there will be a gamewatch at the Keg Stand AND the Ridgemont.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I bet most bars will have a big gamewatch since both ISU and IOWA play the same day. You will most likely find fans wherever you go unless it is Front Row

    A friend who is a big Iowa fan and I had a bet that if he lost, he would go into the Front Row with all my Iowa State gear on (shirt and hat).

    Unfortunately he won the bet, and I had to wear Iowa gear and cheer for the Hawkeyes at Pitt game. Thankfully wasn't much to cheer for until the fourth quarter.

    I assume the Keg Stand will be home to the GDMCC gamewatch as always and that's where I'll be.

    I'm sure for those of us that work downtown, we'll be stepping out of work early and heading to Court Ave. Johnny's HOF should be hoppin'.

    Both solid options...Kegstand has a little better seating though and they serve food.

    Re: Bowl Gamewatch in DSM

    I see in Juice today that People's Court has an ad for Pinstripe Bowl Watch Party starting at 1:00pm. Indicates they'll be showing the game on their big 150' screen. The owner, Tom Zmokek (sp?), is a big Cyclone backer (People's original location was in Ames for you youngin's) .

    This might be worth checking out.

    Downtown needs a better go-to sports bar than Johnny's. Awful service, and they draw a crowd that I don't appreciate at all.

    But their bloody mary bar is solid, unfortunately.

    Spent many a wild night at Johnny's pre-Court Ave. fire. By the time they rebuilt and re-opened, I had moved on from my hard nights of drinking era.

    The way that page is setup it insinuates there will be some kind of cover or something??

    There is Legend's as well, but you are correct sir. I love High Life/Bait Shop but not ideal for watching games.
