Southside Army vs Mercer Football watch party
10/24/2020 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Army hosts Mercer this Saturday and we of the Southside Gathering, just like the knights of the round table, will come together to watch Army fulfill the prophecy of a 97% chance of victory (according to ESPN).
Last week we had 9 brave Knights show up to watch Army hand the Roadrunners a 28-16 defeat.
Here are the particulars…pay attention to the game time, it has changed from the original schedule:
What: Mercer vs Army Football Watch Party
When: 1200 hours, 24 October 2020
Where: Y-Knots Sports Bar and Grill, Peachtree City, GA…Upstairs/Downstairs??? figure it out Recondo, improvise and adapt
Why: This victory makes Army Bowl eligible. Oh! wait! This year since some conferences are playing only 6 games total, there is no minimum number of victories to be bowl eligible. ULM and MTSU still have a chance at a bowl game.
There are no wardrobe challenges. I suspect the downturn in attendance directly correlates to the pressure of competition so we will let everyone be a winner when it comes to one’s attire. Can you say participation trophy anxiety.
Look forward to seeing one and all,
