January = the SEC playing in the BCS Championship…

BCS 2013 logoIn case you’ve been living under a rock for the last 37 days, you already know that the Crimson Tide of the University of Alabama will battle the Fighting Irish of the University of Notre Dame tonight for the BCS Championship.

There are a lot of viewing parties taking place in metro Birmingham this evening. The Carmike Summit 16 has 285 seats available on a first-come, first served basis according to ABC 33/40’s website if you feel like venturing down 280.

If you’re thinking about staying a little closer to downtown after work (if you didn’t leave early to get ready for the game), you may want to think about what’s become WorkPlay’s annual watch party event starting at 4 p.m. Priscilla Wadsworth will be there along with some of her Crimson Tide-focused illustrations.

We know there are a lot of other parties going on this evening, including ones at Cantina in Pepper Place, and Crescendo Lounge on Southside.

Where are you watching the game? Who are you going to root for?

There’s watching the BCS Championship on a big screen…

2011 BCS Championship logoFrom what we’ve been hearing via various digital outposts, there are no known tickets left for next Monday’s BCS national championship game in Glendale, AZ between Auburn and Oregon. The official word at least is that StubHub doesn’t have any left (or couldn’t guarantee any that are).

What to do? Well, the folks at al.com’s Montgomery bureau have made the best suggestion yet for Auburn or Oregon fans in the region. Those willing to drive over to the Carmike Cinemas Summit 16 at the popular shopping destination on Highway 280 will get a chance to watch the game for free – provided they purchase a concession area combo.

Those who choose to watch the game there should not be complaining about someone blocking their view…

Where do you plan to watch the game (provided the weather cooperates)?
