Sports Bars Draw Fantasy Footballers on Laptops

Sports bars these days are where the computer geek meets the football fan.

In many sports bars, more than 10 pro football games on 10 televisions provide (mostly male) fantasy football fans with constant updates on all of their favorite teams — and an opportunity to tap away at their laptops as they sip their beers.

The trend has implications for sports-bar culture in Portland.
