BLONDIES SPORTS 212 West 79th, (Broadway/Amsterdam).
1 train to 79th street, 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.  We will not always have Hawkeye audio on the restaurant side.

The wait – was excruciating.

Seems neither side is willing to admit to screwing something up, but I should have known there might be a problem.  I have DirecTV at home, and normally the Big Ten Network games all show up early Friday on the alternate channels (until then, they say ‘Teams TBD’), but when I tired to set up my dvr to record the game Friday night, none of the game were showing up yet.  Same problem before I left for the bar Saturday morning, and I found it especially strange the guide was not even listing the Penn State game on the main Big Ten channel.
