Griz Playoff Game on ESPN GamePlan
Montana petitioned and ESPN caved in. The Griz and Bobcat playoff games will be available on ESPN GamePlan. Gonna cost you about 25 bucks but at least it's an option now. Plus that means every bar from Polson to Darby will be showing it, which is awesome.
If you do choose to get it at home, your $24.60 will also get you any and all of the games scheduled for GamePlan Saturday, including all eight FCS contests. I think that's a damn good price, especially for hard core Griz fans.
Baucus and Tester made the announcement Tuesday and gave mad props to John Sterrett, the guy that started the Facebook petition. More than 24,000 signed his online petition.
That's kind of what we do here in Montana and Griz Nation, we fight for what we want & usually end up getting our way. Here's to the Griz getting their way this Saturday against the UCA Bears, you can hear the game in it's entirety on 96.3 The Blaze. Due to legal restrictions, we won't be able to stream it, but being on an FM will certainly help more Montanans hear the game. Kick off is at noon.
Oh, and the Bobcats will play New Hampshire at 1pm on Saturday.
