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.

All right, I guess the Hawks have now hit rock bottom, and there are two choices.  Dwell there for a while and become the team everyone in the Big Ten can’t wait to play, or figure out some way to move the football and start climbing back up that ladder.

It turns out the vision we had of offensive line greatness after games 1 and 2 was simply overstated.  It has not helped that we have not been able to really get the 5 guys on the field who were supposed to start the season (Richardson still can’t get passed his bad knee), and in fact the Hawks had to shift guys around at the last minute Saturday.  Our 48 total yards rushing is testament to that.
