Our adventures continues here in the fine city of Dallas. And if we end up in your city, we take in all the sights there is to see. Touring Jerry Jones new stadium was one of those things I had on my "must do" list. While I am no fan of the Cowboys, their stadium is impressive. But this post isn't so much about that, but how many places I could I get M.M. to. On a side note, I'm often asked if I take M.M. everywhere. I don't,....he didn't go to The 6th Floor Museum, The Dallas Museum of Art, or The Social Distortion show. But taking him to the stadium was a no-brainer.
Onward to the stadium.
Here I got a little bit cross looks from the locals as I posed with my little men. "Dolphins !!??",...I heard several times during out tour. My standard response ( with a F you look ),....." all day long ! ".
While hanging around the 50, we met Charles ( on of the staff ). He was super cool and we chatted with him for about 20 minutes. When he found out we where from Toledo he informed us that he goes up to Sandusky, Ohio to see his cousin. Sandusky is about an hour from T-town ( as some call it ) and a great place to visit in the Summer ( Cedar Point & Put-in-Bay ). Anyways,...he gave a bunch of info on the stadium. Such as the big screen cost $40 million alone and is 7 stories tall. He went on about Jerry's private box and the 4 personal suites he has underneath his box. Facts about the turf,....all very interesting.
Here we met another staffer named Danielle, who ( of course ) started by busting my chops straight away. We a friendly give & take. As she took the above picture and endured my return fire to her verbal jabs, she asked a favor.
Again,.....Hell ! Yes ! I was putting on the Dez Bryant jersey, seeing as our guy Ireland wanted to know all about his family history,.......too funny ( to me ).
Tony Romo,......he can't hold Marino's jock.
If you know me, I hate all other teams. Some more than others. But I respect their fans and Jerry certainly build a very impressive stadium for his beloved Cowboys. However, wether your team is the Ravens, SF, or even the lowly Jets,....we are all Americans ( mostly, no disrespect to our NFL brethren in far away places ) first.
That was a fun day,....I hope you enjoyed it.
