SAN ANTONIO — Danny Badiola doesn't know what a Sooner is. But he's sure glad a whole bunch of them traveled to San Antonio's River Walk this weekend.
"Anytime you have a big game like this, it's always busy,” said Badiola, general manager of Mad Dog British Pub. "It's definitely good for business.”
Crimson and black blanketed the sidewalks of the River Walk as fans from Missouri and Oklahoma traveled to San Antonio for tonight's Big 12 Championship football game.
Badiola said Friday night was Mad Dog's second-busiest night of the year, behind St. Patrick's Day.
The first floor was flooded with Sooner fans. And the second level filled with Missouri faithful.
Badiola said he estimated his pub would do 25 percent more business than on a regular weekend night.
‘More than we've seen'
Pablo Hernandez, who has waited tables at The Republic of Texas steakhouse for almost seven years, said he can't remember when more fans from one team visited the River Walk before a game.
"I believe there are more than we've seen,” he said.
