November 22, 2011
YONGSAN GARRISON, South Korea - Fox Sports is preparing to broadcast live from Yongsan Garrison during their Thanksgiving Day coverage of the Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers game.
The live broadcast will take place at the R&R Bar & Grill on Yongsan Nov. 24 from 11 p.m. until their game day coverage ends.
Dubbed the Thanksgiving Tailgate Party by the R&R Bar & Grill, the event is free to everyone with base access.
Ronald Buss, from the Yongsan Garrison Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation Office, said the R&R Bar & Grill will be open late on Thanksgiving to accommodate the broadcast and air all of the NFL games that day.
"Come on out and enjoy the game," said Buss. "It's not every day that you get this kind of opportunity."
Fox Sports Analyst Jay Glazer, UFC Fighter Benson Henderson and NASCAR Crew Chief Jeff Hammond will all be at the live broadcast on the U.S. military headquarters post in Seoul.
"This is a great opportunity to watch the Thanksgiving Day game with hundreds of your closest friends and to be on national TV back in the states," said Eighth Army Deputy Public Affairs Officer Lt. Col. Michael Sennett, from Detroit. "Go Lions!"
