Longhorn Network - How to win friends and...

Just saw this notice:

The Longhorn Network hosts two free public-viewing parties at Republic Square Park for the Texas vs. Wyoming game (Sept. 1) and Texas vs. New Mexico game (Sept. 8), broadcast live from Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. Outside food or drinks, pets and umbrellas are not permitted. Events conclude upon games' [sic] end.

The games will be shown on an 8' x 18' LED video wall in the park. A 30' x 40' tent will also be onsite equipped with four flat-screen TVs. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.

So. As I understand things, the Longhorn Network is not really all that popular with local fans, right? So, what should they do about that? Ooh! Ooh! I know! Host a free viewing party for the poor folks that can't get the LHN. That'll engender lots of good will.

Oh, but don't bring let them bring their own food or drink. And, don't let the door hit you on the way out. Because events conclude as soon as the game does. Go on, now. Move along.

I do not like them. I do not like them, Sam I Am.
