Cowboy Colosseum

I’m sitting here watching the Dallas Cowboys/New York Giants game on TV.  Forget the game.  The main attraction is the venue.  It’s the first Cowboys game in their new billion dollar stadium in Arlington.  Some people say it’s too extravagant.   Over the top.   Overkill.  I agree.  And I love it.  It’s Jerry Jones (Cowboys owner) money.  And his dream.  Why not?  I toured the Cowboy Colosseum two years ago  when it was being built.  I stood in Jones‘ suite, and on the 50 yard line where the famous Star is.  Climbed every step to the very top to get a good view of the monster video board. Walked the ramp where Tony Romo, Felix Jones, T.O. (sorry, I just had to do that) run onto the field.  Stood gawking at the cheerleaders (Hold on, the Cowboys just scored.  TD pass from Romo to Whitten. “D” up 14-13 in the 2nd.)  Okay, where was I?  Oh yeah, the cheerleaders.  Enough said.  Anyway, you get the idea.  Two years later, Jerry Jones‘ dreams are fulfilled.  As for mine?  I get to watch it on TV.
