Watch Party, MSU vs Minnesota

Well, we all knew that going into Kinnick stadium and winning was going to be a tall order; but, this is still one of the best team’s we’ve seen in years so let’s cheer them on these last three games towards a Big Ten title!

The Freep Press’s Jamie Samuelsen summed it all up pretty well:

“The Iowa loss is the exception. The norm has been good, hard football. The norm has been winning close games and controlling the line of scrimmage. The norm was the wins over Michigan and Illinois and Wisconsin (and that Wisconsin win looks more and more impressive in the rear view mirror).”

In addition to our official club watch party in San Francisco (doors at 8:50 am) we are also hosting game watches in the East and South Bay regions. Hope you can make it out Saturday morning!

Happy Football Season Bay Area Spartans!

Thanks to all the Spartans that came out to cheer us to victory against Notre Dame, what an exiting game! The coach is feeling better and will be calling the plays from the press box for the game coming up.

With the Badgers heading to our home turf this Saturday it is sure to be an exciting game! We hope to get a great turnout of Spartans to provide some great cheers. Be sure to get there a little early to secure a seat. See you there!

Our East Bay Director, Katrina Hammer, will also be hosting a watch party in Walnut Creek at Stadium Pub. So if that is closer to where you, please make your way there!

Watch Party, Spartans vs Gophers

Now that the season of 4pm weekday and 9am Sat/Sun morning MSU basketball games are behind, March Madness is in full swing! We have coming up in the next few weeks many exciting MSU sporting events taking place. We have the MSU Men’s hockey team fighting to try and make it back to the Frozen Four (which they won a few years back!), and we have the MSU Men’s Basketball Team looking to make it back-to-back trips to the Final Four. Of course, do not forget about the MSU Women’s Basketball team who finished the season ranked in the Top 25 looking to make a deep tourney run as well.

Because game times and scheduling will be very quick and brief, I ask that you please keep checking back to our site www.sfbayspartans.org for up to the minute watch party locations and events coming up. Thank you for your continued support as we roll into my favorite time of year !

The first March Madness Watch Party will be tomorrow night as your Spartans take on the Gophers. A perfect Friday Happy Hour tip-off time!

MSU vs Minnesota
5:55 PM PST (approximately, depending on the game before)
TV: Big Ten Network

Come on out and watch at any of our usual spots around the Bay: Pete’s in SF, Old Pro in Palo Alto, Double D’s in Los Gatos and Stadium Pub in Walnut Creek.

More to come.

Watch Party, MSU vs Iowa

Happy Pre-Halloween Weekend Bay Area Spartans!

With the season just a little over half way complete the Spartans look to continue their winning ways as they battle the Iowa Hawkeyes this Saturday Night at Spartan Stadium. This is the first true big game of the year as Iowa is currently ranked No. 7 in the nation and is undefeated coming into the game.

With a win this weekend, MSU can really turn this year around! The game starts at 4pm PST (not 9am yay!) and will be viewed at the normal spots in Palo Alto (Old Pro), San Francisco (Pete’s Tavern), and Walnut Creek (Stadium Pub).

As an added bonus, I am personally organizing a mini Palo Alto Bar Crawl immediately following the game win or lose. We will rock out in Palo Alto! So come on out and watch MSU march into first place in the Big Ten!

Watch Party, MSU vs NW

MSU is on a roll winning their last 2 games in a row! This week they try to go over the .500 mark for the first time since week 1 as they take on the Wildcats of Northwestern.

So plan to come on out, get a friend to join you, and let’s watch MSU roll their way to another victory together!

See you there.
