The San Francisco Saloon is where 49er fans head when they need a satellite dish to enable them to watch their favorite team. The faithful bring in their helmets, sweatshirts and their big boom voices on Niner night. 11501 Pico Blvd., West Los Angeles. (310) 478-0152. All ages. No cover. Full menu.

National Sports Bar & Grill's Torrance location is where you'll find Detroit Lions fans cheering for Johnnie Morton, a home-grown receiver who got his start at South Torrance High School and played for USC. 3210 W. Sepulveda Blvd., Torrance. (310) 534-5700. 21 and over in the bar; all ages in the restaurant. No cover. Full menu.

The Bull Pen serves up bratwurst whenever the Green Bay Packers are playing. Wisconsin transplants have made the 50-year-old bar and restaurant their hang because the bar manager is one of their own. 314 Avenue I, Redondo Beach. (310) 375-7797. 21 and over. No cover. Full menu.
