In a grand example of Texas Excess [wasn't that a Country & Western song?], The House That Jerry Built is #1 on my list of stadiums I'd like to visit. In what is now called AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys is the 8th Wonder of the World according to this kid getting a tour. He has a good point. Check out the innards of the facility.

Since it opened in 2009, many have said that the 600-ton screen they mentioned in the video is a distraction. It's such eye candy that sometimes fans get transfixed and forget about watching the actual action on the field.

I like to think of the economics of such a monstrosity. First off, six years ago the stadium opened after a $2.3 billion completion price. I wonder if that went over budget. Also, what do you suppose the lead contractor made on that project?

Secondly, it now has that AT&T sponsorship. Pricetag to sponsor the joint: $19 million annually. The roof has the corporate logo and the announcers call it by it's new name. But, I would imagine fans still call it Cowboys Stadium. So, is it worth that amount of bank for AT&T to get it's branding return? I don't think so.

So, there you have it football fans. This longtime Cowboy fan would like to visit the new stadium in Arlington. When I was a kid, my parents took us to Dallas. I was hoping for a tour of Texas Stadium in Irving. They weren't giving any that day. Only saw the parking lot. Someday I want to see the inside of their new digs. You could see the interior of this or ANY other stadium in America if you win our contest....
