Where to watch Longhorns season opener

It’s not their fault. That’s what The Longhorn Network seems to be saying by hosting a big, free, UT football watch party at Republic Square Park for the Texas vs. Wyoming season opener Saturday. Kickoff is 7 p.m. LHN will repeat the favor for next week’s slaughter of New Mexico. Republic Square is at 4th and Guadalupe Streets.

The games will be shown on an 8’ tall x 18’ wide LED video wall in the park. Not as good as my living room, but what are you gonna do when the tightwads at Time Warner and Uverse won’t pay a few quarters a month per customer. On the bright side, where else but the LHN can former mob informants get a job in broadcasting?

One thought on “Where to watch Longhorns season opener

  1. Time Warner and Uverse might have something to say about their side of why they’re not carrying LHN…like it running only lame creampuff games no one really cares that much about. Can you say “lack of market demand”? I love UT football but even I can’t get that excited about watching these early — as you say — “slaughters”.
