Fond memories of Texas Stadium

by

I was feeling nostalgic about the old Texas Stadium coming down this week.  I have so many great memories of games played and games watched in that stadium. It definitely had that end of an era feeling. I played my first game with the Cowboys the year the stadium was built.

Here is the link to the implosion video.  http://www.dallascowboys.com/farewell/Texas_Stadium_Implosion.cfm

But, the new stadium is really something.  It’s hard to take it all in – from the floors on up everything is first class.  It is really over the top.  They even have a wine bar.  You have to be there to appreciate it, and no other stadium compares.  The old Cowboy stadium was small compared to the new one – the new one is almost 2 ½ million square feet. The video screen in this stadium cost $40 million alone, where the whole of the old Texas Stadium was built with $30 million.

The real question for the fans is, how important will this new stadium be to the Cowboys? It’s the same 100 yard field; but it’s definitely a positive advantage.  When the roof is closed it is really loud, and that is a home field advantage for the Cowboys.
