Matthew McConaughey wants to watch a Longhorns game with you, reader. (

Good morning! Would you like to take in a Longhorns game with Matthew McConaughey and unspecified "pals" of his? You can make that dream come true, and for charity! But you don't have much time: Online bidding expires at 2 p.m. ET:

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sit with Matthew McConaughey and his pals during a University of Texas football game. You will sit with Matthew and friends in his personal suite and enjoy routing on his favorite college team.
Whether you're a monied Texas booster or just the lone living superfan of that Wedding Planner movie (McConaughey saves Jennifer Lopez from a RUNAWAY DUMPSTER, y'all, in the smelliest Meet Cute in recorded human history), the appeal is undeniable. We assume they mean "rooting," and that they maybe used up all their spelling pixie dust cranking out "McConaughey" that many times, but if you pay enough, maybe you can reenact the 2011 Red River Shootout in a suite, who knows. No word on whether or not Mr. McConaughey watches the games with a shirt on, but if this bid goes over $10,000 it would be only fair to ask him to show up bald in a sleeveless bomber jacket and reenact scenes from Reign of Fire. Fellow alum Owen Wilson can play the dragon.
