Dallas Cowboy Game
My daughter, Wendy, and I were fortunate to obtain some tickets to the Dallas Cowboy Game last Saturday night and had a ball. I am an avid footballer and go into withdrawals the day after the Superbowl and I had never been to a pro game. And, I really wanted to go see what all the hype is about for this jumbotron. Well, it lived up to everything that's been said...and more. We had fab seats on the 50 yd line, third deck, which is eye level with the screen. Only problem is, you watch the screen and not the game on the floor! It stretches from the 20 yd.line to the 20 yd.line and is 162 feet wide, 90 feet off the ground and has screens on either end for those in the endzone area. But, it was great! We were also fortunate to know some people in rather high places and enjoyed the hospitality of two different suites and all the merriment that goes along with that. We wound up at the best suite of all for the after game party goingson and stayed until around 2:00AM. Needless to say, the stadium lived up to all the pregame hype as it is gorgeous and is very fan friendly. It doesn't hurt that it is all brand new and has every tech thing you can imagine going on. We renewed some old friendships and made some new ones in the course of the night and a good time was had by all.
