The more I travel, the more I see sports bars. They've been around for years, usually in obvious places, like in college towns or near arenas.
But now they're everywhere, even in airports and hotels, places where you'd expect generic bars. Sports bars are becoming ubiquitous and ordinary — merely, as my wife calls them, public man caves.
All bars, of course, have forever been places where men talk about sports. Other prime saloon subjects include women, the traffic and the weather.
