BLONDIES SPORTS 212 West 79th, (Broadway/Amsterdam).

1 train to 79th street, then half a block east.  Several parking garages are nearby.
NOTE: If sitting on bar stools/standing for 3 hours is not ideal for you, we will be reserving a couple tables on the restaurant side of Blondies.  Call the bar at 212 362-4360 to reserve table space.  We will not always have Hawkeye audio on the restaurant side, however.

Last Week: Northern Illinois

All right – there was some griping in the bar that the final score was not a bit more rout-ish, but I was not too concerned with that.  The Hawks could have opened things up a bit more in the 4th quarter but it was nice to see them just grind out the clock on those last few drives.  Somewhere down the road the Hawks will get the ball back with a 3 point or less lead and 5 minutes left, and it will be up to the 0-line and tailbacks to bleed that clock down to zero.  The good news was that for the first game, things looked all right.  Sure, there are things to work on – but things are not going to get any harder this coming Saturday.
