American Football Sports Bar?

Does anyone know of a sports bar that would have American football on Sunday night?

Cheers!

Do a search on 'sports bar', there have been loads of postings on this subject.

Whether the bar you find is actually showing what you want is another matter.

I'm not sure of where they regularly play American football. I do know the second nationally televised game (1pm EST start, 10pm start here) gets shown live on the Hungarian channel Sport 2, which is sometimes found offered in Hungarian hotels. Once in a while they'll tape delay the 1st half to accommodate a late Spanish football match. (they catch up at halftime) Another channel to look for is NASN, a channel that is basically ESPN. It isn't found as often in hotels. I believe you can look up their schedule on the net.

Two sport bars to suggest: Champs has two locations, one down the street from the big synagogue on Dohány and another in Buda. (champs.hu, map - http://tinyurl.com/53qojc)

The other place is the Scottish bar New Caledonia on Moszár street which is near the Oktogon. Their owner, Patrick, responds to e-mails and does his best to accommodate his guests. I know in the past some others that I have steered there had a good experience getting their rugby or Australian Rules Football on, so you might want to try him. (www.kaledonia.hu, map - http://tinyurl.com/4ztt9x) By 7pm, most British football ends, so there's a chance that one of the TVs will be free.
