Football season is right around the corner and based on the results of our Fall Sports Poll, 60% of you responded with "What? There are other sports besides football?". Nice!
Other poll stats of note: 62% of those that responded are Longhorn fans, 73% are Cowboys fans, almost 50% want to see a Rangers Hockey game live, 95% are interested in seeing a live football game (we will definitely organize something), and 70% of you are happy with having events located below 14th Street. If you would still like to take the poll, you can find it here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/BCV8RLY
