A Tour of AT&T Stadium AKA Cowboy Stadium

The Greyhound Companions auction is over and Mama won three items! We hope we didn't drive everyone crazy with our reminders but we wanted to help out as much as we could since the group helped me out in my time of need.

Saturday, the folks toured the AT&T Stadium here.  It is where the Dallas Cowboys play football. The Final Four will also be played there in April. The folks purchased the VIP tour which has a tour guide. You can also do a self-tour.  Mama thought the tour group would be small since online it only allowed for the sale of nine tickets per time slot.  Their group ended up being quite large since no one announced the 11:15 a.m. tour and all of those people joined the 11:30 tour which was the one the folks were in.  Mama estimated that there were about 50 people on the tour and some self-guided tour people joined in along the way.

 The stadium took three years to build.  The estimated cost to build was $650 million, but the actual cost was $1.15 billion.  It has the world's largest column-free interior and the fourth largest high definition video screen.

Waiting for the tour to start, the folks sat in the stands.

Ford display with cool fountains.

College football display.

The helmet on the right is Mizzou which is a Missouri team.  They played in the Cotton Bowl this year. The helmets will stay here until next year.

Yep, they toured the locker room.

Press room.  It is larger than the one at the White House.

This is where the Cowboys enter the field.

Mama said the field was soft.  She put a knee down and said it wasn't bad at all.  BOL!  As you can see, people are allowed to throw footballs around on the field.  The folks enjoyed walking around the field.  I wish greyhounds were allowed to run on it.  Can you imagine?

The folks enjoyed the tour.  Mama felt a little disloyal to her St. Louis Rams' but Dad said it was okay since it was the Cowboys and they were icons at one time.  I think that is what he said.  :::shrugs shoulders:::
