Watch Party, MSU vs PSU

This is it! This is for the all the marbles! MSU is taking on Penn State this Saturday in Happy Valley for a shot at a share of the Big Ten Championship!

This has been a long season, and it has been such a long time since MSU Football has been in this position. The game starts at 12:30 p.m. PT and your alumni club will be gathering to watch at the Old Pro in Palo Alto. This game is going to be huge and we need everyone to come out and root MSU on. With a win, MSU can tie Ohio State for the Big Ten Crown.

However, if Michigan beats Ohio State and MSU can beat Penn State, then MSU will win the Big Ten outright! So if anyone wants to get to the Old Pro early to help root U of M on, that game starts at 9:30 a.m. PT as well. Call up any Wolverines you know and bring your rabbit’s foot, because MSU needs all the luck we can muster this Saturday. Also, whether they win or lose, please be on the look out for upcoming info about New Year’s Day Bowl Plans as well. MSU will be playing sometime on or after January 1 …NOW LET’S JUST SEE WHERE!

If you’re planning to join us at the watch party, please post a comment to the site or RSVP on the club Facebook page… look forward to seeing you there!

Directions to Old Pro or other Bay Area places to watch are available here on the site.

Watch Party, MSU vs OSU

So at 6-1… Gosh that feels good saying that! At 6-1, the Top Ranked College Football Team in Michigan… GOSH… IT feels even better saying that! We’ll be battling for perhaps sole possession of 1st place in the BIG TEN! That is even better!

Our Spartans take their magical 2008 ride to another level as they take on the Buckeyes this Saturday in East Lansing. The game starts at 12:30 p.m. PST and will be shown nationally on ABC. This weeks watch party is going to where the turnout has been the strongest… at the Old Pro in Palo Alto!

Last event at the Old Pro, we had 15 people… so I’m challenging the entire Bay Area to get up for this and let’s make it at least 45 Spartans! If we do get that many, we may need our own section so I am looking for folks to RSVP ASAP so I can contact the bar for reserved seating. If we can not get that many, then we will send out another blast letting people know that they we need to get there early to secure tables.

Keep in mind that the Old Pro always has a huge Ohio State alumni turn out, so we’re asking everybody to make an extra effort this weekend so we can fill the place floor to rafters with GREEN!

For the those living in San Francisco, we’ll also be hosting another CalTrain caravan from the city down to Palo Alto in case any one wants to get a huge caravan going! Since we did not get a huge response last time – sorry Justin – we want to get RSVP’s for the train as well. We will be taking the 10am Train from SF and it will arrive in Palo Alto by 11:02am.

If you are interested in showing those Buckeyes whose boss, please RSVP to prez@sfbayspartans.org and come out for a what will be an awesome game and another MSU Victory!

Directions are available if you need them.
