Seattle Sports Bar that actually opens in time for games?

Okay. My buddy lives on the Olympic Peninsula, and I live in Eastern Washington. We have our fantasy football draft coming up which is done online, so we plan to meet in Seattle and do it together. It is on a Saturday. We thought it would be cool to meet up at a sports bar and hangout while we do the draft. The draft starts at 11:00am pacific (2:00pm eastern), but I thought that shouldn't be an issue since college games start at 9:00am, and NFL starts at 10:00am here on the west coast so sports bars would be open (and all the sports bars where I live open by 9:00am on weekends). Well, I was wrong!!! I've checked into a lot of sports bars and the earliest they open is 11:00am. We need to be logged on by then. I even asked a few places if we could at least come in and get logged on at 10:45am...they said "no".

Does anyone know of a sports bar in Seattle that has wifi and opens in time to actually watch games? While I'm at it, how do they call themselves sports bars if they don't open in time to watch the games? When I was in Hawaii, Hooters would open at 7:00am for the games.

If not a sports bar, a decent place that has wifi, food, drinks, and a TV showing the NFL preseason games????
