The glow of televisions tuned into the Cowboys' Monday Night Football game could be seen at several East Texas shelters.
After days in unfamiliar places and the stress of worrying about their homes, the game was a welcomed distraction for many evacuees.
It seems Cowboys fans can always bond over their team. Cheers could be heard throughout the game, and every now and then a groan and some typical fan shouting.
Still, football brought some relief Monday night.
