Local sports bar provides comfort for Syracuse football loss

Chadwick's in the Eastwood section earns kudos.

 Halftime Snack found a local watering hole for the Penn State game, walking east to Chadwick’s Bar & Grill, located on James Street in the Edgewood section of Syracuse.   

Run down the hallmarks of a solid bar:  good bartender, TVs with different sports games to watch while commercials play, variety of seating options, Lottery machine, ATM, burgers, involved fans and sports poster/pictures/foam fingers on the fall.  Chadwick’s has it all covered.   
go to watch the NFL games on Sunday and get a 20 oz. draft of Killian’s for $3.  

If you’re looking for the game-result:  #7/5 Penn State defeated Syracuse, 28-7, Saturday afternoon in non-conference football action at Beaver Stadium.Official SU Athletics Release

LEGENDARY NEW YORK:  Brooklyn-native Joe Paterno coached the Nittany Lion football team for 27th time against the Syracuse Orange (97th time overall between the programs).  It was an emotion-filled day for the 82-year old.  He began by looking up at the sky and checking for rain at kick-off.  Then the referee called a phantom offensive pass interference penalty on Joe’s wide receiver.  Joe ran onto the field for an explanation.  Then Joe tried to slam the door on Syracuse, going for the touchdown on fourth-and-goal from the one-yard line.  The exchange between center and quarterback was fumbled away.  Gosh darnit!

Joe’s first half was capped with an enlightening conversation with BigTen Network reporter Charissa Thompson right before halftime:

Thompson:  “Coach, how do you get better on third down?”
Joe:  “Play better on third down.”
Thompson:  “How can you get more consistency?
Joe:  “Play consistently.”

OFFENSIVE ORANGE:  Was there only one play run from the “Stallion” formation today?   Where are the reverses, a pass to the Ryan Nassim at wideout and another pass deep to Mike Williams, or a direct snap from shotgun (with a QB standing there)?  Running on PSU and linebacker Sean Lee is difficult, why not let them just tee-off?  I’m sure inexperience will be a common word this week.

MY OTHER BROTHER DARYLL:  Penn State quarterback Daryll Clark is the best player the Orange will see on a football field in 2009.  And he is eerily familiar to a SU legend.  Look for him to be quarterbacking the St. Louis Rams or the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2010.

DOUBLE NICKELS:  The Nittany Lions have multiple players wearing the same numbers.  Halftime Snack would like to see this practice die.  100 players on one team are enough.  Some of us memorize numbers on jerseys in order to accurately identify said player in a particular stat situation.

EVERYBODY PLAYS:  Two quarterbacks, two kickers, five wide receivers.  Intense signals and substitutions.  Coach Doug Marrone brought a basketball player to quarterback his team and now has adopted the substitution pattern of a hoops coach.  Confusion reigned at Beaver Stadium Saturday, and Coach Marrone won’t want to be wasting his timeouts if it's a game the team could win.
