sports bar with good food?

just about to begin my cali trip on friday (with all of your great suggestions from a prior post) and i need help on one more thing.
hubby and i are big sports fans. There is a college game saturday afternoon and a pro game sunday afternoon that we would like to see while we are in San Francisco.
What I need is a sports bar (probably with satelite/Direct TV - both games are east coast games) anywhere in San Fran with good food. Any suggestions?
Thanks so much!
Sfgate has a listing of SF sports bars (see below) that is by no means complete. But stay away from Jillian's at all costs!!! And throw in just about every other Union Square place for good measure.
Zeke's is where a local Ohio State alumni group meets to watch games. Close to Pac Bell, but it can be empty at times. Food seems to be purely deep fryer or chili.
Pat O'Shea's on Geary in the Richmond has good food but its location is not that exciting. On the plus side, there are at least three other Irish-type pubs (Abbey, Ireland's 32, Plough and Stars) within walking distance so the location is actually pretty good.
You may want to try the Bayside in the Marina.
I'd like to hear what others think about Perry's in the Marina for watching sports.
re: go bears
any clue if any of the places have the nfl ticket/direct tv? we'll be looking for the eagles game on sunday and i'm sure that the local stations out there won't have it they will have regional coverage.
Same goes for the college game (sorta) it's psu/bc, and it's 8pm eastern time, so it might be national
thanks again for all the suggestions!
If you are an Eagle fan, you will love the Kezar Pub. It is full of loud fans that come to see every game, which is usually on one of the two big screens. They also show Every other game, as well as any college game that you want to see.
Food is standard pub food, not great, but works.
Too bad you're not a Steelers fan, or I'd recommend Giordano Bros., which serves the delicious Pittsburgh Primanti-style sandwiches. It's a fun PA-loving bar right in the heart of North Beach. I bet they'll be showing the PSU game.
Pete's Tavern on King does have the NFL ticket. It's a huge sports bar with decent food. If you are willing to wander over to the East Bay, Berkeley's Pyramid Brewery & Alehouse a good place for college and pro football. The food is better there and they have great beers on tap. Finally, there's Harry's Bar in the Marina. They have the ticket and multiple TV's. Food's not bad.
