I live in the Golden Triangle. The Texans game will be played here if the Cowboys & Texans are being broadcast on the same network. Family & friends go looking for sports bars whenever that happens.
But this is still Cowboy country. I agree with everyone here. A couple of Super Bowl in the next few years & the conversation may change. Until then, we're pretenders.
Nobody wants to follow pretenders.
