Renting Rooms To Watch The Cowboys

Some East Texans are making alternative plans to watch the Cowboys game. A somewhat unlikely place is also filling

Hotels specifically in our western counties that will have access to KDFI My 27, the local Dallas station broadcasting the game. Anderson, Henderson, Kaufman, Van Zandt, Rains, Hopkins, Delta, Lamar, Red River should have access to the channel.

Those Cowboy fans that don't some are reserving hotel rooms to watch the big showdown.

"We actually are sold out. We have made quite a few people unhappy," said Martha Sublett, General Manager, Holiday Inn Express Athens, "I know of about eight rooms I have personally booked and I have had quite a few of our staff I tell me. I got a call at home last night to make sure for sure the game is going to be showed here. And so that is why first thing this morning I called the company to made sure. I have had calls all day long if they can just come and watch it in our breakfast area. So we are expecting alot of people."

Now other hotels we spoke to still have available rooms. Some of them were offering a Cowboy's fan discount. But if you aren't interesting in renting a room and want to go somewhere and watch the game. We set up a list.
