Positive Pie To Show the World Cup

Yankunian, who writes two great blogs, The Vermizzle and The Manchizzle, depending on what continent she's on, asked a good question in a comment on the post about the US-Poland match. She wanted to know if there would be any bars in the area showing the World Cup this summer. I had actually checked into this earlier and forgotten to post about it.

I spoke to Carlo, the owner of Positive Pie and soccer fan, about showing the games. He said he was planning on having a large flat screen TV installed over the back of the bar in time for the World Cup. He wasn't sure if they'd be open for the 10am matches but was certain they'd be rolling for the noon and 3pm matches.

I'm sure McGillicuddy's will have the matches on also. However, I'm not sure how open-minded the crowd there will be to watching the matches. They've put the qualifiers on for us in the past but usually on just one TV in the corner. Given the choice between that and watching a the games on a large flat screen at Positive Pie, I think I'll go with the latter.

By the way, this Friday, March 10th, Positive Pie is hosting a Big Heavy World Benefit show with four indie rock bands. On March 17th, they are doing that hippie-trippie thing of showing The Wizard of Oz set to Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. I can just imagine the smells.

Sweet! Cheers for that, I feel much better about life now. And they have pretty good pizza too.

Looking forward to watching the games with you at PP2. However, I don't want to hear any of that crazy talk about Reyna not being a good player. Crazy talk!

I didn't say Reyna wasn't a good player, I just pointed out that Stuart Pearce doesn't seem to share your enthusiasm for his team-building qualities. I love Reyna, I just wish I got to see him play more.
