Sorry to hear that as it is one of my favourites. I'll have to check it out in a few weeks.

I really don't know why you would want to put yourself through that every week.

But, since you are apparently LOYAL and that good, there's lots of places around TV to watch "regular" season games.

As for PRE-season, you'll have to lucky enough to have get one of the national networks to pick up the game and then you could watch it at home.

Regular season - as stated the Beef o' Brady's, also Hacienda Hills CC, but, you'll have to put up with some PACKER fans.

Also PACKO'S @ Fiesta Bowl gets lots of people and they have televisions outside for the smokers. And McCalls at Spanish Springs lanes gets a little action

Terra Del Sol did had games in the past too

That's probably about it for the 'NFL Ticket' group but many other CC's and bars will carry the game that is on the Nat'l tv schedule.

If that would happen to be Detroit . . . there'll probably be fans there (or maybe not).

Myself: I got DirecTV & bought "the ticket" and sit in the comfort of my home.

The first year I was here, I went to a sports bar (now gone) with my mother.
We'd spend $30 minimum on beer & appetizers or lunch. I figured for that price I can afford "the ticket".

So ...ENJOY . . . and.........GO PACK !!

But will they play the Lions game is the big question!!! Any help would be appreciated...
I gave up watching the Lions until they change owners. Barry Sanders left 10 years ago. Beef O Gradys by Colony might work, but it is a small place. There definitely will be more interest in other games played that day. I sometimes listen to the games on the radio using itunes on 97.1 The Ticket. just to torment myself. The team injuries are already piling up after a week of practice. I would rather watch a college football game. Just SEC down here.

I'm sure we will get the NFL ticket once we buy a house. Unfortunately, that will be a few months from now. So for now, we have to take our chances and hope that there will be enough Lions fans to have them put the game on one of the tvs at a bar. And then hope that some Packers fans don't come in and make them change the station.

At this time of the year I have to evolve into a Tigers Fan, or at other times a Red Wings fan, but I become a Lions fan after the pre season is over. Most years I evolve into a Tampa Bay Fan on or before the Thanksgiving day game because I have the need to root for a team that actually could under some possibilities actually win a game. TEEHEE

I think that it's nice to have a thread where both of the Lion's fans can discuss their team.
