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.

So – some of you peeps at the bar challenged me to find something positive to write about this game.  And so I present – through two Big Ten games the Hawks have not allowed a single punt return yard.  HA! You all owe me a drink.

Alas, that was pretty much it.  Especially concerning the ‘special’ teams, who not only did not kick in some points as I had wanted, but in fact gave 7 of them back (negative points?) with the two missed field goals (one by each kicker) and the botched extra point (by Signor).  A lost fumble on a punt return, too.  Certainly did not make things any easier for the offense or defense, which had problems of their own to overcome.
