The Dallas Cowboys’ annual “Silver and Blue Debut” is set for Thursday night, and serves as a kind of homecoming for the team, after a month of training camp in Oxnard, CA.
Parking is $10 but entrance to the open practice is free for the public. The doors at the newly renamed AT&T Stadium in Arlington open at 4:30 and practice begins at 5:30.
In addition to the bells and whistles they usually break out for the annual practice/party--including performances by the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders and the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm and Blue team--head coach Jason Garrett told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he’s anticipating up to 40 former players to attend.
Garrett believes the presence of these Cowboy alums should motivate the team.
“It’s great to have those guys, to have the history and be a part of it, their own memories. But it’s also good to have our guys be around them,” Garrett said. “I think it’s a positive thing. They’ll be at practice, and then we’ll have a dinner afterwards. Guys will sit down together and hopefully get a chance to visit and talk.”
For those with kids with school in the morning, the Silver & Blue debut is expected to wrap up around 7:30 PM.
