Are you ready for some FUTBOL?!!!!!

We sure hope so, because for all of you asking what we were going to do to celebrate the 2014 World Cup, your answer is a mighty, resounding…SOMETHING!

 

 

 

In fact, that something is that Inside the Locker is teaming up with sports website Bro Jackson and specficially their soccer podcast International Players Anthem to bring you a live, on-location event that will cover the entirety of the World Cup’s opening weekend. That’s June 12th-16th (starting next Thursday OMG!)

That’s right, we’re going to be setting up shop at The Mohawk right here in downtown Austin to bring you our special mixture of expert analysis (from IPA) and irreverent geekiness (that’s us!) in an epic four-day celebration we are dubbing: Game of Cups! There will also be games, local drink deals, and giveaways!!!
