"Bar Rescue" Host Jon Taffer Explains Why Some Sports Bars Fail

Spike TV Bar Rescue host Jon Taffer stopped by SI Now today, and naturally the topic of sports bars came up. The best ones, Taffer notes, recognize that sporting events only fill the bar 70 days per year so you need to have great food and emulate the energy of the game. (So that's what's made Hooters so successful.)

And why do some fail? The answer won't surprise any of Taffer's regular viewers.

"Excuses," he says. "If you wake up in the morning and blame the President, Congress, Europe, the Euro, the Dollar, the market, the construction in the street, and you never blame yourself, then every morning you blame somebody else and you go do the same thing and then you fail."
