Viewers divided: presidential debate vs. Detroit Tigers

Posted: Updated:

(10/16/12) - There were bound to be some fights over the remote control Tuesday night, with the presidential debate and the Detroit Tigers playing at the same time.

But there was room for both in Genesee County.

Students met at the University of Michigan-Flint for a debate watch party.

They say the debate impacts their future more than the outcome of the game, and that's why they decided to attend the party.

But at Sharky's Sports Bar in Burton, it was a whole different ball game.

Fans there say they already know who they're going to vote for, and they'd rather root for the home team.
