Memphis Sports Bars Ready For Football Season 2011
Professional and college football is back for the 2011-2012 season. The NFL players and owners came to terms and the season is ready to begin. College teams are preparing for their first game to be played shortly, during the first part of September. And not only are the players and coaches preparing, but the avid football fans are also pumping themselves up for another hard fought season.
All this is good news for the local sports bars in Memphis, Tennessee, and for all sport bars in every other city around the country. The true and faithful fan will go to their closet, and on the top shelf in the far corner they will find the jersey of their favorite player and team. They will throw on their favorite jersey, head to their local sports bar, and then station themselves in front of the the big TV screen at the bar, ready to cheer their team to victory and glory. All the while shouting with exuberance every time their favorite player touches the football.
And as the yearly spectacle begins in a matter of days, you will see like minded fans huddled in groups, posed to participate in front of their designated screen with a bucket of cold beer and a greasy plate of hot barbecue wings. You will find the “Cheese Heads’ of the Green Bay Packers in one corner and the intense and vocal Pittsburgh Steeler fanaholic occupying another corner. And God forbid if the two teams should play each other with both group of fans present in the same bar. Bring out security.
At the bar will be the sports nerd wearing his thick glasses, and who never put on a football helmet, but he will know everything about every player since his pewee football days. Then there is the “fantasy football” aficonado who will be watching a multitude of screens hoping he has made the right choices. The weekend gambler will be on the phone with his favorite bookie getting the latest spread to place one last bet. And as the games begin, the bartenders and waitresses hustle from patron to patron, and savor the additional tips for their pockets.
That said, there are several sports bars in Memphis that offer the avid football fan the proper setting to take in the games, and I’ll name a few.
“TJ Mulligans” has several locations in Memphis and the surrounding suburbs. TJ Mulligans offers a wide open bar with plenty of TV screens focused on a number of games on any given Saturday or Sunday, and with lots of seating. They offer weekend specials on buckets of beer and the food is excellent as bar food goes. You will need to be 21 years old to enter TJ Mulligans, as they do allow smoking. And you will see a host of Packer fans on any given Sunday in most locations.
There is also the “Sports Bar” in midtown on Mendenhall at Park Ave. When you walk in the “Sports Bar’s” space seems limited, however there is plenty of additional seating and many TV screens in the upstairs lounge. It’s an intimate bar with a host of avid football fans watching their favorite team on one of many big screen TV’s on any given weekend. And like TJ Mulligans, adults only.
Other nice roomy sports bars in and around Memphis include “The Flying Saucer” and the “Fox and Hound”, both out east on Germantown Rd. And there are numerous “Buffalo Wild Wings” within the Memphis city limits and also located within the various suburbs of Memphis. “Buffalo Wild Wings”, a national chain, does allow children under 21, and their food is also excellent as bar food goes.
So if you are a Memphis native or just traveling through, one can easily locate a sports bar close by to enjoy a football game with a fellow fan. And don’t take it too hard when your team doesn’t get the victory, remembering- it’s just a game and next week is a new beginning. And a Memphis sports bar with similar loyal fans will be close by to enjoy your weekend passion.
