Craig Miller's Field House (7958 Via Dellagio Way, Orlando FL) is where Terry likes to go to watch football playoff games. We sat at the bar to watch her San Diego Chargers play the Raiders. I used the outing as a sketch opportunity. Miller's has so many large screen TVs, it is hard to know where to look. Each TV was showing a different game and they had small team banners under each set identifying the teams. Since every one's eyes were glued to the games, it made for some easy clandestine sketching.
The Raiders were eliminated from the playoffs with their 13 to 6 loss to the Chargers. Terry was rooting for the Chargers since San Diego California is where she was raised. The fun in seeing a game in a bar is all the cheering and jeering that goes with every play. The Chargers later lost the final game of the season when a win would have secured a playoff berth. They missed the playoffs for the fourth time in five seasons. Terry likes to say that her hometown team always breaks your heart right at the final moment.
