    where to watch the game in Mannheim / Frankfurt Germany

    I know everyone hates this, but I'm completely serious. Our neighbor is a student in Tuscaloosa, but leaving for a study abroad program and has to be in Mannheim on January 4. Anyone have any suggestions for a safe and friendly place where she can watch the game, especially considering that it won't kick off till about 2 a.m. local time?

    I think Lutzenkirken has a bar there.

    Does she have any ties to the armed forces? I know they will carry it. I'll ask my SIL in Stuttgart...

    Thanks, Boss. She has no military ties, but was actually hoping perhaps the military personnel would have a regular bar or restaurant staked out.

    Is she willing to drive to Frankfurt to see it. It's about an hour, but it's a good Autobahn, albeit one of the most heavily traveled in Germany. As I said, I'll check my SIL...

    I'm sure she'd take the trip up the road if there was a chance to see the game in safety with some real Alabama fans. She refers to her trip to the SEC Championship game as "the greatest night of my life". For a girl with no Alabama ties she's come a long way in a couple of years.

    I expect they will have the game streamed at the officers club or NCO club. These facilities in Kaiserlautern would probably be closer than Frankfurt. It all on the autobahn so speeding is OK. When I lived in Frankfurt the master-at-arms would allow young ladies into either club. Frankfurt's officer club used to have a Keller Bar under the club which is quite good. Don't know if it is still there.

    I miss the Army sometimes. This thread is one of those times.

    Hadn't thought about Kaiserslautern. That would be a little closer and it's not as big and intimidating as driving into Frankfurt...

    Mannheim still has an active Army base. I was there a few years ago - lived there as a child - and the quarters are behind a fence but not sure about the clubs.

    If all fails, with a little savvy you can watch it online. So you could be in Timbuktu with a computer and a connection and watch the game.
