This thread is marked as being about Costa Rica

We are going to be in CR for the month of November and although we will be running around the country enjoying all it has to offer; there are a couple of nights we just have to watch the Dallas Cowboys. Surely, there is a sports bar somewhere with ex-pats from Texas watching the game. If so, where might they be? We will buy a round of beer! If there isn't one then, we will survive.

I think it will depend on whether the Cowboys are playing a nationally televised game or not. If they aren't, you shouldn't be able to see them in Costa Rica any easier than I can in Colorado. Latin America does have a spanish ESPN, so you might get lucky. I was down in Mexico a couple weeks ago and they were broadcasting the games down there. Haven't seen the 'Boys' schedule, but I'm pretty confident you'd be able to catch them down there if they play Sunday or Monday Night Football.

Nice win against the Eagles. Now, if only Keyshawn and Bledsoe can just get along!

There are a number of sports bars in San Jose that show American sports. I was down there during Superbowl, and they were showing that. They do tend to show the games that appear on ESPN in Spanish.

Check the ESPN international site. There you can get listings by sports for the specific ESPN channels. Start here, enter football, choose EPSN DOS and ESPN Latin America (your most likely canidates to see in CR) and choose the dates you are there.

I'm not sure a Dallas game will be a big hit, I mean c'mon Dallas?

Just Kidding! (I'm from Houston by the way, You barely get Houston Games in Houston)

Just had to razz a fellow Texan, Good luck on the trip!

NFL is so boring!!!
Why don't you watch a 5 day cricket Test match.
A great exercise in patience and beer drinking.

There's a Houston team? Just kidding. And I can probably do the cricket thing as long as beer is involved.

Lob on down to Oz during cricket season and sip (or skull) a few sherbets.
I've seen elderly ladies knitting jumpers and scarfs while play is on, so you could actually read War & Peace at the match and miss bugger all of the action.
It's a cultural thing!!!

Well there is a NFL franchise in Houston, I wouldn't call them a "Team".

I had no idea cricket matches lasted that long.

I've spent some time down in your neck of the woods and I just never could get into Cricket (even with beer in hand). I understand that watching paint dry might have its allure, but come on. Rugby, now there's a sport us Yanks are missing out on!
