Not quite the same thing, but there's lots of ways to game the system. Personal example: in Texas you don't have to be affiliated with a party to vote in their primary (may be the same elsewhere, I don't know). So back in the 2008 campaign, I voted for Hillary in the Dem primary. My logic was that s...

Shoal Creek Saloon is the base station for Saints fans.
But depending on where you are located here in town and what you're looking for, there's also a homey, fairly quiet little place called Cajun Pizza Kitchen (near McNeil and 183 northwest) that carries the games. It is a restaurant atmosphere...
