VOD: Ricky Williams reads a poem in new Longhorn Network commercial

Nick Bromberg

This Longhorn Network commercial allows Ricky Williams to show off his love for spoken-word poetry.

The former Texas RB and Heisman Trophy winner is the star of the new promo which features a poetry circle with a Texas cheerleader, a Texas band member and some Texas fans.

The poem sounds like something you would hear at an open mic night. Well, if there was a sports poetry open mic night.

In case you were wondering, when the University of Texas was founded, 40 acres were designated for its construction. Hence the 41st acre angle.

(Yes, the Longhorn Network is still around, and no, you probably don't get it unless you have AT&T or Dish.)
