Jerry Jones has often told the story about lying on the famed star logo in the middle of Texas Stadium and staring through the hole in the roof after buying the Dallas Cowboys.
Twenty years later, Jones owns a much bigger playground with a
retractable hole in the roof. And he finally gets to see his team
play in the nearly $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium tomorrow night.
Jones says seeing his team play there is, in his words, "going
to be one of the real highlights of my career." That's despite
three Super Bowl trophies during his tenure.
The stadium that can hold more than 100,000 fans hosted
international soccer matches and concerts before the namesake
tenant finally gets its turn. The Cowboys make their debut in the
NFL's largest home venue with a preseason game against the
Tennessee Titans tomorrow night.
