Super Bowl Coming To Dallas For The First Time


How cool is it, that Super Bowl XLV is going to be played at the home of the Dallas Cowboys?  I grew up in the seventies and eighties, and during that period, at least in my mind the Dallas Cowboys were one of not “the” powerhouse in the realm of football.  I was always a big fan of the Cowboys, and the legendary feats of  Tom Landry and Roger Staubach are very much a big part of my formative years.  I was actually kinda surprised, when I realized that for all the years the Super Bowl has been played, it’s never taken place in Dallas.  It has played in Houston a couple of times, but never in the Dallas Fort Worth area.

And, there’s no doubt, that the new Dallas Stadium is going to be a stunning showcase for the event.  I was browsing through some other football news the other day, and was wowed with the facility.  Just viewing that monster video screen would be worth the price of admission I think.  Apparently, the screen itself cost as much the old Texas Stadium, that the Cowboys used to play in.  While it would have been pretty amazing, according to the superbowl odds found at BetUS: and the basic laws of mathematics, there’s absolutely no way the Cowboys will be playing in the Super Bowl this year.  That would have been about the only thing to make a Super Bowl in Dallas even more spectacular.  Either way,  I pretty hyped about the big game, and can’t wait to see it played.
