Be true to your school:

Spectator sports are communal by nature - you want to be around other who are like-minded in your allegiance and affinity. College sports, maybe even more so. Especially if you hail from a university with a strong sports tradition, often football and basketball. But when you no longer live in your college town, where do you go when you want to relive that sense of collegiality and belonging? Find a local sports bar that plays unofficial host to your alma mater. San Diego has several great places to watch sports, and many of them play gracious host to college sports fanatics. Love your Florida Gators? Head to Players Sports Bar in Kearny Mesa. Are you a Trojan fan? Then the Bullpen North in Encinitas is where you should be. Notre Dame? Hennessey's Irish tavern in the Gaslamp, of course.
