It was no competition at Mulvaney's Bunker Pub Monday night between the Lions-Bears match up and the final presidential debate. But if you're thinking it's just because these sports fans love football, you'd be wrong.
"I've already seen the first two, I've seen all I need to see to make my decision," says Robert Torres. "So this night, I'm enjoying a night out with my son."
The third and final debate was full of back and forth, highlighting each candidates position on foreign policy. Bunker Pub patrons say sometimes you get fed up with the attacks.
"After the first two debates, they just throw so many things at each other...nobody's really saying anything," says Amanda Gray. "I'd rather watch football."
Down at Dorr Street Cafe, the bar was much quieter, but one voter says the debate was her top priority. She still has more to learn about President Obama and Mitt Romney before election day.
"I just want to see who's strong, either Romney or Obama," says Carolyn Sanders.
Thanks to modern technology, millions of Americans didn't have to choose at all. Mike Alfonsi says both events are important, so he'll enjoy each one at his leisure.
"I wanted to go out and talk as much trash as I could and watch the game," said Alfonsi as he prepared to watch the game. "But I'll probably go home and flip on the debates later. I've got it DVR'd right now."
