Unless he's looking for a Jets setting, he shouldn't have a problem finding a sports bar with the Ticket.

Thats the ting he wants the jets atomosphere. He found a place for the jets pats game and said that it wasnt as fun as when hes with other jets fans and wants that back.

I would guess he would have a hard time finding that in GA. His next best thing might be to find fans with a common interest....say Colts fans for next week. They will be rooting for a Titans loss.

When the Georgia Bulldogs play football and the Atlanta Braves play baseball, it's easy to find a sports bar or restaurant in Savannah that is televising the game.

But what if you're a fan of an out-of-state team and you don't subscribe to a satellite television package? Where can you go to cheer around here?

There are several establishments in town that cater to fans of out-of-state teams, supporters who will eagerly spend their money on food and beverages at an establishment willing to show their team's game on TV.

Liz Laskey, general manager of B&D Burgers at 11108 Abercorn St., said any sports fan who visits and requests that their team's game be shown will have their wish granted.

"We've got 12 TVs in here, not including the large projection screen, and we put any team up if there's a game you want to watch," Laskey said.

Laskey said B&D Burgers is Savannah's unofficial home to the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

"We have more supporters for the Steelers than any other NFL team," Laskey said.

John Henderson, owner of Coach's Corner at 3016 E. Victory Dr., said his establishment is Savannah's unofficial home to the Steelers.

"The Pittsburgh Steelers, that's our largest fan base," Henderson said. "But we cater to all NFL teams. The Steelers are pretty much our biggest club. Actually, I don't know if they're even a club. But a lot of Steelers fans come here for their games.

"We have a huge North Carolina group (for basketball). They have a club and meet up here for about every game. For baseball, it's the Yankees and Red Sox. That's just tradition there because it's one of the best rivalries in sports."

The majority of sports bars and restaurants subscribe to DirecTV because it has exclusive rights to the NFL Sunday Ticket package, which provides up to 200 NFL games and is the only way to follow up to 14 games every Sunday.

"Probably two-thirds of my revenue comes during football season, from September through January," said Henderson, whose Coach's Corner subscribes to DirecTV. "I'm counting the days until football season starts. Labor Day weekend, come on soon!"

The more the merrier

Tubby's Tank House at 2909 River Dr. in Thunderbolt is this area's official game-watching home of the Savannah Browns Backers, a Cleveland Browns club.

"They have a back room and they put in a couple of big-screen TVs for us, and we get that whole room to ourselves," said Kathy Dust, the chapter's secretary. "Everybody crowds around and grabs a table, grabs their food and we support the team."

Dust, 37, said she enjoys taking her children to Tubby's Tank House because of the family atmosphere. The upcoming football season will be the Savannah Browns Backers' 10th overall and third at Tubby's Tank House. Her father, David Armstrong Sr., 56, is the club's president and one of its founders.

"Almost everybody in our club is originally from somewhere in Ohio," said Dust, who moved to Savannah from Warren, Ohio, when she was 10. "On our active roster we have 60 people. We've added more over the offseason."

The Savannah Browns Backers' membership dues are $15 per person each season. Dust said the funds go toward the purchase of prizes that are raffled at halftime. Information about the club is available at .

"There's just something about your hometown team," Dust said. "I've never really thought about following anybody else."

Chris Fogarty, manager of Locos Grill & Pub at 8108 Abercorn St., said most of the NFL viewers who visit are fans of the New York Giants and Indianapolis Colts.

"We don't really have too many West Coast fans," Fogarty said. "But we had a big basketball following for the (NBA) Finals and got a good bit of Lakers fans in here."

Not just NFL, NBA and MLB

Jerry Bacon, manager of Hooters at 4 Gateway Blvd. W., said fans of both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Jacksonville Jaguars are in the majority for NFL games.

Perhaps the largest crowd that gathers at Hooters is during Ultimate Fighting Championship events.

"We have a huge following for the UFC," Bacon said. "The UFC has taken over. It's bigger than boxing."

For soccer fans, Molly McPherson's Scottish Pub & Grill at 311 W. Congress St. is the place to be.

"We always have, or 90-plus percent of the time will have, soccer or rugby on one of our TVs, if not all three," said co-owner Jennifer Brown. "We're the unofficial home of Manchester United and Liverpool and Chelsea. And when the time is right, we'll certainly show NFL, MLB, basketball and hockey games."

Jacksonville is only 2 hours away...you could always come down here and catch it Buffalo Wild Wings with a bunch of Jets fans.

I was there for a Jets game once. There is a huge square with a bunch of bars and restaraunts...actually a killer pizza place in this square as well...I just cant remember the places name.

Its smack int he middle of the town, away from the River, but there is a huge sports bar there with great TV's and the food was pretty good. I cant remember for the life of me the name of the place...anyway, its easy to find. You pass the square as you get into the city.

The title says it all. My buddy is in the Army and is stationed in Savannah. Does anyone know any bars in the area with a few jets fans that he can hit up to watch the games on sundays?

Thanks

Savannah's only two hours from Jax. Come down and meet up with me and JiF at B-Dub's. We have a group of about 10 of us that meet there every Sunday.
