Aug. 10 is shaping up to be a busy day for Arlington and, perhaps, some enterprising local sports fans.
On that day, the Dallas Cowboys will host their Silver and Blue Debut, which consists of an open practice, performances by the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and Rhythm and Blue team, and a live broadcast by 105.3 FM The Fan. Doors open at 4:30 for a 5:30 practice, which is free for fans--however, parking will set you back $10.
Then, at 7:05, the Texas Rangers will take on the defending World Series champion New York Yankees across the parking lot at the Ballpark in Arlington. This will likely be a game, barring a fairly drastic meltdown by Texas over the next 12 days, loaded with playoff implications and intrigue, meaning that they won't have much problem getting fans in the gates.
But for the sake of harmony, the Dallas Cowboys insist that they're not attempting to steal any of these fans away from the Ballpark--indeed, quite the opposite seems true; Cowboys' vice president of public relations Rich Dalrymple said the team encourages fans to head to the Rangers-Yankees game after the end of practice, which should come a little before the 7:05 first pitch.
