VIRGINIA LUCAS HART

The City With No Team

NYCVirginia HartComment

In New York City, we may not have a lot of trees to remind us what season it is, but we do know it's fall by one simple fact: college football season.

I have to admit, I am a bigger fan of the celebrations that coincide with games more so than the actual games. I know, I know - shame on me. Cut me some slack, though; I'm still in the process of learning what the snaps, spikes & sacks are all about!  If I'm undecided about what team I want to win, I base my decision purely on who has the prettier jerseys. That's my tactic and I'm stickin' to it. And since the only third-and-long I'm familiar with is a bar on 3rd Ave, I shall give you a list of just that. BARS.

In a city with no college team, we must follow our alma maters, hometown loyalties and other favorites. Many New Yorkers hail from different parts of the country -- so with the help of two articles (Guest of a Guest and Metropolis) paired with my own online searching, I have compiled a list of where you can watch your specific teams this season. I even linked each bar entry to the corresponding website. Yes, Little Lady is that helpful.

Ok, I apologize if your team didn't make the cut. Little Lady can only do so much.

P.S. I'd like to just go ahead and point out that UVA won their first game.

Oh, and Virginia Tech lost theirs.

Wahoowa!
