Watching from afar as well, Linga. Have it streaming on the computer at work. Got some strange looks from coworkers when I started clapping for that 3 run homer.
You can find some suggestions over here, Filly.
Badgers vs. TTUN, Louisville vs. Clemson and Cowboys at 49ers (Hyde vs. Zeke)
Go for dinner here after the game... http://www.chicagopizzaandovengrinder.com/
Short cab ride from Wrigleyville and it's great. Get the pizza pot pie and a Great American Salad.
It's a cash only joint. Won't regret it!
Heading to Santa Barbara, CA to visit my girlfriend. She just moved there a few months ago from Seattle. I've never been. Any recommendations?
Found the coverage map. If anyone is interested, you can view it here.
Looks like I get to watch from the comfort of my couch.
Anyone know where to find a coverage map for ABC? The OSU game and Nebraska v. Miami are on at the same time and both are on ABC or ESPN 2. I live in Seattle and don't get ESPN at my place so I'd have to head down to the pub (damn) to watch the game. I'm assuming Nebraska v. Miami will be on ABC in my area.
It's never too early to start planning! I booked a flight home 3 months ago to Columbus for Labor Day weekend. Surprising my dad for his 60th birthday. Can't wait to watch the game with my family and eat all of the Benny's pizza. (If you've never been to Benny's in Marysville, it's WORTH THE DRIVE from Columbus.) Sticking around that following week and taking my girlfriend to her first Buckeye game against the Rainbow Warriors.
Watched the show last night... all 6 episodes. Hilarious! Thanks for the recommendation. Hopefully they do a second season.
Dustin Johnson or Bubba Watson. Longest course in US Open history I believe, so I'll take the power hitters. Gotta like Spieth as well because of his consistency and caddy.
Also... PNW is the BEST!
Linga, I'm a little late here but I just saw that you asked... I live in the Central District and work in Pioneer Square. Moved out here from Columbus after graduating in 2013. What about you?
Restaurants I'd recommend... Coastal Kitchen, Skillet Diner, Lost Lake Cafe. All of those are located in Capitol Hill.
Beer/Whiskey... Radiator Whiskey by Pikes Market and Chucks Hop Shop in the Central District. Chucks has over 100 different beers on tap.
The Seattle waterfront is currently under construction and is a mess so I wouldn't really recommend going down there for anything other than Pikes Market. If you go into Beecher's cheese at the market they usually have free cheese samples in the back. AMAZING stuff!
Would also recommend visiting Volunteer Park. There's an old water tower in the park that you can go to the top of and get a great 360 view of the city and it's FREE.
Fremont and Ballard also have a lot to offer.
Enjoy your trip!
I wouldn't really say there is one specific street but Capitol Hill's Pike/Pine corridor has a TON of bars/restaurants/music venues.
Did you guys hear the one about the corduroy pillow?... It was making headlines everywhere
9 AM PST :(
Lets go Brownies!
From that OSU/MSU thread...
An Oregon fan...
"I'm the duck who lives in Detroit. I moved to Michigan with no dog in this fight. But after encountering jackoffs like this guy time and time again, I've come to realize that aOSU fans are collectively the worst kind of douchebags you'd ever want to strangle.
UM fans are arrogant pricks, but they've never yelled "faggot" at me or called my wife an ugly cunt because I was wearing an oregon t-shirt in Ann Arbor. Both of those things happened to me in Columbus. Either way, I'm with MBG--rip those fuckeye tits off and beat them with their own severed man-tits."
I don't think he likes us...
