In a city where the women outnumber the men by 210,000, some times we just need to turn the tables. With March Madness in full swing, I can’t think of a better time to hit up the local sports bar, and a better reason than to go fishing for a hottie.
Many women may scoff at the idea of heading to a good ole’ fashioned sports bar for 1) they don’t know anything about sports, 2) it is about the farthest thing from trendy, or 3) they just wouldn’t know what to do there (Do they serve wine spritzers here?). I urge you to not underestimate the power that spending a little time at a sports bar can do for your love life.
As we all know, men are rather simple beings. They enjoy sex, beer, and sports, and probably in that order. Now this is where you walk in. Visualize a room full of men, getting riled up over their team kicking some ass, throwing back a few beers. Though this may sound scarily similar to a frat party, assuming you are entering a slightly better watering hole, the men would be young professionals and beyond. Maybe age won’t differentiate it too much in comparison, but at least you won’t be stepping over vomit, or shielding yourself from a Neanderthal, hit-my-fists-on chest-to-exert-masculinity fight.
If you’re a gutsy gal, you could head there by yourself and reap the full benefits of having a room full of men at your disposal, or you can grab a girl friend, which in that case you’d still both be fishing with dynamite. You head over to the bar, take a seat, pick a team with a nice colored jersey (unless you actually know what you’re talking about, then watch out!) and order up a round of beers (or mixed drink if that is your forte). You better believe that a whole bunch of men just took notice, even if it was for a micro-second between watching their team hit that three pointer. They won’t truly acknowledge you until a commercial break, but when they do, they’ll already be thinking that you are a truly awesome chick. You have just become a combination of their 3 favorite things – you drink beer, you don’t mind sports, and there is the potential to have sex. Mix that with some sexy jeans, and some confidence, and you are like the holy grail of women!
If you still can’t bear the idea of watching some sports, it actually took me making my own brackets, when I started dating someone, to make me have any interest at all in March Madness. I’ll do a little research now, pick some teams that represent California (gotta show some love), and wager a bet or two to make it more fun. When you have selected your teams, you then have someone to root for, and it is an easy conversation starter. And out of all sports, basketball has a lot of action, a lot of scoring, and is easy to follow – “he shoots, he scores”, simple as that.
So if you are ever wondering where all the men are in NYC, they are in sports bars this time of year, and pretty much all times of year (there’s hockey, baseball, football, or soccer seasons as well). Find a good sports bar, pick a team, and clean up. It’ll be our little secret.
