Can I get an "Alright Alright Alright?" And a "Hey hey hey" for Matthew McConaughey? It's no secret the normally calm and handsome actor from the Lone Star State has also given himself the title "The Minister of Culture" for the University of Texas' athletic program.
Here's how you could serve in that capacity, if you choose to. Be well-known actor/celebrity. Check. Be a big fan. Check. Maybe teach a U.of T. film class. Check Check. And give a substantial amount of money to the program. Check check, and WRITE a check. That certainly makes you worthy to make a big solo entrance before the game, and get a sideline pass. Hold up, he didn't need no stinkin' badge. HE's Matthew McConaughey.
The pregame video clips before kick-off on College Football GameDay showed a just a bit of arrogance underneath all that suave exterior. Add a targeted personal foul of face-mask aimed at Lee Corso.
And then, the battle between the banks of the Sabine River came with LSU pulling out of Austin with a 45-38 whoopin'. As a result, the handsome actor was hot. And not in an attractive way.
You would think a famous Texas guy like Matthew McConaughey would get a LOT of sideline face-time on national TV. And you would be right. With all of the less-than-happy expressions and (at least one colorful metaphor that flashed on the screen), you just knew that the creative Social Media Meme Department from Tiger Nation was about to go to work. And they delivered.
