Luge? Ice Dancing? Biathlon? It's time for some of those sports we barely even recognize to dominate the TV screens across San Diego. If you want to keep an eye on the Olympics, but also want to get out of the house, we've got some spots in mind where there are plenty of TVs. (Photo courtesy of True North Tavern)

If you care more about the World Cup than the World Series, this is the place to be. The pub gets packed for English Premier League soccer games, as well as cricket and rugby matches. No worries if sausage rolls and scotch eggs aren't your thing, the menu includes burgers, fish tacos, and other standard San Diego sports bar fare.
Although it's despised by most of North Park's hipster community, the 30th Street bar is tailor-made for sports fanatics with more than 20 High-def widescreen TVs, large booths, pool tables and an outdoor patio. The bar subscribes to all major satellite packages and opens at 9am during football season.
Wherever you are in the bar or patio, you're sure to be steps away from one of the 125 flat-screen TVs. If you want to hear the game at your table, ask for a Soundog sound box and select from 8 games. The bar is especially popular among college football fans from Washington, USC, Michigan, Georgia and Tennessee.
Owned by former linebaker Junior Seau, the bar/restaurant shows games on more than 60 monitors and a massive 12 by 14-foot projection screen. And because it's located in the Westfield Mission Valley Shopping Mall, parking is always free and easy to find.
