Sports Bars Become America’s Singles Bars
Much of the cheering for the NFL Playoffs takes place not for the teams, but for fans of sports bars around the country.
That’s because the games – even as only a handful of teams make the post-season – are great excuses to go to sports bars.
Guys go to sports bars to watch the games (after all, what else is there to do on a weekend night?) and girls go to the sports bars because that’s where to find the guys.
Unless there’s some particular passion for one of the teams playing, the sports bars become singles bars. Conversations become more important than third-down conversions. And just wait until the Super Bowl.
I know this to be true because I’m one of those “fringe fans,” interested enough to pay attention to the game but far more interested in the anticipated party crowd at the bars. Being more than a college football fan, my loyalty to any of the teams playing is based on what the girl I’m talking to favors.
And if you think this is something, just wait until the Super Bowl.
And after that, March Madness.
This blending of sports and singles bars is one of the great aspects of being single.
