Must See TV: Ben Ball Warriors In March Madness

Again, not all of us are going to be as lucky as rfirpo and thousands of others who are doing the Lord’s work by turning Phoenix Bruin Blue. They are going to able to watch DC, JS and the rest of our boys running at the ’Toppers:

For the rest of us, and especially those of us who don’t live on the West Coast, it’s that time of the year. We have to hit our local bars and find local Bruin gatherings to take in our Ben Ball warriors. Here is the CBS broadcast map (pdf file) for tonight’s game.

As you can see, if you are not in the West Coast, you like many of us Bruins in exile are kind of out of luck in terms of watching this game from home. You will have to hit your neighborhood bar or a Bruin gathering near you.

So here are the parties we know of for Thursday night:

  • Let's start with the Big Apple. Alums in NYC will be watching at "the Ship of Fools" located 1590 2nd Avenue, between 82nd and 83rd Street.

  • Down the I-95, alums in DC will be watching the game at the Ugly Mug - 723 8th St SE (near the Hill). If you are taking the Metro, take the Blue/Orange line to Eastern Market Metro Stop.

  • In Chicago, the Bruins watch their games at Joe's Bar, located at 940 W. Weed St. Here are the details

  • Back in LA, alums are getting together in South Bay to watch Thursday's game. People are getting together at The Tavern on Main St. 123 Main St. (between El Segundo Blvd. and Grand Ave. Sounds like they have their own version of "Bruin Den" set up and all ready to go.
If you can’t head out to a bar you can always sign for Sportsline's March Madness on Demand. The feed back on MMOD has been pretty good so far. And as always we will have a game thread ROCKING here on BN tonight. So I am sure fellow BNers will be more than happy to keep you up to date.

As for the get-togethers listed above those are the ones we know of. For more on alumni club football watching parties visit this site. If you have info on where the alumni group are watching the games in your town, post the info here. The info on where to watch the game in Seattle was incredibly helpful to us last week. May be someone else needs the same tip this week.

As always keep in mind - even though the get togethers listed above are hosted by alums - of course, they are open to every member of Bruins Nation.
