I'm talking about the number (ok, not the training) of the actual concessions, which I expect to be sold out by about the end of the first quarter.


Here I go:

"There there."

Thanks. That was comforting. But not convincing. ;-)

unfortunately your fears were well-founded. There were several hundred, if not over a thousand, fans still trying to get through security at 7. Some were late arrivals, but the lines were incredibly long before kickoff, too.

There were still people pouring in just after the first quarter. Went out to try and get a drink and the lines were stupid long. It was a disaster. Glad I was in the stadium 30min early.

Only the specialty beer line was semi-reasonable. Great problem to have — nice crowd

Speaking of which, I thought to myself when we were down 30-9, for the first time we brought a crowd and the football team let us down. But in the end they didn’t. What a win.

Again, it’s a great problem to have. Crowd was strong.

Two minute wait for a Deep Ellum IPA 10 minutes before kickoff, 5 minute wait for Dox XX 2 minutes after halftime began.. I could not have been happier!

With 2 weeks to prepare, maybe they will do better vs Temple

I intend to send an email to several people on Monday. Everyone needs to enjoy the win. But we need to focus on hotdog numbers for the 19th.

It wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. And yes, hopefully the off-week means more prep for what should be another good crowd for Temple.

Too bad that about a third to half the fans left at halftime. They missed an all-time comeback.

Their loss...but they were tell their friends they were at the game and how exciting it was. The question is whether they will come back for future games.
