The Future Home of the Dallas Cowboys

While in Dallas for Thanksgiving, I decided to take a short visit over to Arlington to get some photos and a first hand look at the new Cowboys Stadium currently under construction. I was so amazed at this "monster" of a stadium that is taking shape. I have seen the virtual tour online and artist renderings but when you are right there, well I just can’t explain how it feels.

It is still somewhat of a skeleton, but its definitely coming along quite well. After all is said and done the stadium will span 2.3 million square feet, tall enough to house the Statue of Liberty. It will be the largest domed structure in the world, and house 80,000 people with the capability of expanding for 100,000 people. Of course, we’ve all heard these statistics but to see it still blows my mind.

I’m very happy that I took the opportunity to visit the future site of "The House that Romo Built". I plan to visit again as it progresses and compare the photos. This is definitely history in the making. If you live in the Dallas area and have not checked it out, I certainly recommend taking some time to do so.




A “Big D” Super Bowl



The next NFL owner’s meeting will be on May 23rd in Nashville, Tennessee. The NFL expects to vote on the site of Super Bowl XLV in 2011. Candidates for the host city include North Texas, Indianapolis and Phoenix. The Cowboys’ new stadium is currently under construction but is expected to be completed in 2009. That will give team officials two years to prepare for America’s biggest game. The City of Dallas has passed two resolutions to support the bid, despite the new stadium’s location in neighboring city Arlington.

The team’s hopes are in good hands with former Cowboy Roger Staubach leading the charge. Roger, is part of the committee responsible for convincing the NFL to consider Arlington for football’s biggest game.

The Cowboys have never hosted a Super Bowl, however I really like our chances this time around. Especially when we are the only team offering a brand new, luxurious, ultra-modern sports arena, the likes as has never been seen before, as the venue. The dimensions are astronomical measuring 2.3 million square feet with the seating capacity of up to 100,000 people. The stadium is so huge, that it could even house the Statue of Liberty.

I really think this bid is a shoe-in. After all, the Cowboys are five time Super Bowl Champions. There is no greater passion for the game of football than right here in the state of Texas. Texans eat, sleep, breath football. If you’ve ever been to a Texas high school football game you know exactly what I’m talking about. Its more than a game, its a way of life. Start saving your money now because come 2011, America’s Team will be hosting America’s Game!
