Looks like few of us are taking in the college football kickoff tonight on WWL. USC just beat up on NC State in a boring 7-3 game. Time for some West Coast ball as Oregon takes on Boise State on Boise's smurf turf. We need to wait less than 48 hours for our guys to get started So here is an open thread to jump start the first college football weekend here on BN.
Also, might as well use this thread to share some quick info on alumni watching parties across the country. Details after the flip.
Here are some of the parties we know off:
- We will start with the Big Apple. Alums in NYC will be watching at "Southern Hospitality" located at 1460 Second Ave., between 76th and 77th Streets.
- Down the I-95, alums in DC will be watching the game at Bar Louie at 701 7th St NW (#D) in Chinatown. Also few alums from DC are heading up for Thursday night's game.
- In Chicago, the Bruins watch their games at Joe's Bar, located at 940 W. Weed St. Here are the details
- Folks in Bay Area have set up three locations to watch the game. They are watching games at the Old Pro sports bar (Palo Alto), The Stadium Pub (East Bay), and the Pete's Tavern (San Francisco) You can get the full details over here.
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. 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.
So let's get it started for a special Thursday night kickoff open thread.
