View Full Version : Steeler Fans in NJ ?
09-15-2006, 08:03 AM
Just wondering if there was any place that anyone goes to watch the games in South Jersey where the best football team in Pennsylvania is priority and not that other crap they watch in Philly. I see alot of gear around but I guess everyone stays home because I dont know of any places where they feature the Steelers. On the bright side though this little detail has led me to creating an awesome home theatre to watch the games in high def! It still would be nice to watch the games with other fans besides my family it gets lonely just the 4 of us waving terrible towels in my t.v. room.

Nothing really too close the ones that are maybe doable, Im not too sure as to how much they really are Stiller places. Funny you live in North Jersey though, I spent alot of summers in Pattersonas a kid. Actually Im going to the Bronx tomorrow. But that is a different sport.

Where at in SJ are you? I usually watch the games at home alone. I found a Philly Steeler fan group who watches the games at Finnigans Wake (http://www.finnigans.com/) in philly. I think I may head over there for the Monday Night game. It sounds like a good time with lots of Steeler fans and Sports talk 950 brodcasting from there on Monday. He's an email from the Philly club.
I was sorry to have missed the innaugurial game at
Finnigan's Wake, but I understand that Mike Driscoll (owner) has gone
INSANE with trying to accomodate our group.
I know that there has been some discussion about Finnigan's vs. Fox and
Hound for the Steelers games, but I was just curious if Fox and Hound
provided those Primanti style sandwiches this year like Finnigan's did
Thursday? Did Fox and Hound provide the sound for the Steelers game or
did you have to compete with ESPN X games or Punky Brewster reruns?
Finnigan's has four (4) flat screen plasma televisions, one projection
television (with another on the way), and three (3) 19" televisions
behind the bar - THERE IS NOT A BAD SEAT IN THE HOUSE.
We are going to do something a little extra special for this group in
hopes of truly building up the membership and commeraderie of the
existing fan base. I am fortunate enough to have a business that allows
for me to acquire some memorabilia, and over the next several weeks Mike
LoGreco and I are going to be deciding on what to do with such items as:
1.) John Stallworth autographed jersey
2.) Donnie Shell autographed jersey
3.) Kevin Greene autographed mini-helmet
4.) James Harrison autographed framed photo (Decking the Cleveland Brown
fan who ran onto the field last year - titled "SLAMMED!")
5.) Willie Parker autographed official Super Bowl XL ball
and much much more!!
It's our hope to generate additional excitement within the group and a
genuine interest to support an establishment who believes in us enough
to provide shirts, beer specials, food specials, premium sound and
television, and a guaranteed venue to watch EVERY Steeler game no matter
how big we get (Fox and Hound turned people away during the AFC
Championship game). We hope you join us NEXT Monday night at 7:00pm @
Finnigan's Wake for a pre-game kick off party!
Tell everyone you know to come out and give Finnigan's Wake a chance to
win you over. I am promising a special give-away item during half time,
but you have to be there to have a chance at winning it! $2 Iron's, $2
Coors Lights, $2.50 Lager, and Primanti style Sandwiches! What's not to
love? Are we going to have to ask the staff to be rude to you in order
to feel like you are at Fox and Hound?? We can do that, they are that
accommodating. ..lol. Looking forward to seeing a HUGE group on Monday.

Oi! Hmm - Haaahh! SportsTalk 950am (the better alternative to 610 WIP
and their 'know-it-all' wolfman!) will be broadcasting LIVE on Monday
night from Finnigan's Wake beginning at 7pm. Don Tolefson and Glenn
Foley will be discussing the previous Sunday action, but I say we give
them something else to talk about when the entire freakin' club shows up
in the Black n' Gold! Bring the towels, bring the jerseys, bring the
NOISE because it's our opportunity as a group to show Philly what real
fans look like!!
STEELERS @ JACKSONVILLE - BIG BEN RETURNS!!
Hope to see everyone there!

I am in Marlton. Finnigans sounds cool but I dont know about Monday night. I already have a friend that went to the Parade with me in Feb. Ill have to check out 950 though it isnt often I listen to reg radio anymore though since I got sirius. Which by the way lets you listen to the games with local broadcasts.

I didn't know Sirius lets you do that ^ I'm from central NJ
09-24-2006, 01:48 AM
sorry for the late response, but yes you can listen to the local broadcast team of any game on sirius.

Might have to check out finnigans in a couple weeks.
09-27-2006, 09:48 PM
Let me know and I'll try and meet you there.
