Where out-of-towners go to root, root, root for their home teams
The Sports Column is a Steelers bar. So that'll be fun next weekend.
The World Series is in full swing, and although the Rockies didn't make it this year, just about every TV in every sports bar in town has been tuned to the match-up between the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies.
Fans of those two teams -- and there are plenty of them -- may not find comfort among the Rockies-loyal, but they can certainly find like-minded company at a couple of bars that cater to those from the Big Apple and City of Brotherly Love. And fans of plenty of other teams can find homes among Denver's bars too.
Andrews on Lincoln, 1111 Lincoln Street, proudly calls itself a Yankees bar, and attempts to show as many Yankees games throughout the season as possible. Pat's Philly Steaks and Subs, 1624 Market Street, is dedicated to everything Philly -- from cheese steaks to Tastykakes to the team itself.
Meanwhile, there are watering holes all over town that play host to specific factions of the sports world, flying the flag of certain NFL, college football, baseball or hockey teams and helping out-of-towners, transplants and Denver-haters feel at home.
We've compiled a partial (and frankly, only partially confirmed list) of the ones we know of, but if you can think of others, let us know, and we'll update it. Go (team).
