Poteet 6 Highland Park 0 (Mesquite Poteet vs. Highland Park at Cowboys Stadium, Poteet won 45-21)
So are all you Cowboys fans depressed that your team isn't playing in Super Bowl XLV? After all, it's all we heard in July and August. The Cowboys were going to be the first team in NFL history to play in the Super Bowl in their home stadium. It was inevitable.
Oops. That dream is now flushed down the drain, but Cowboys fans can still find a way to get out to JerryWorld and experience some Super Bowl flavor without paying thousands of dollars to actually attend the game.
Cowboys Stadium announced that Super Bowl tours are now on sale and will begin Jan. 24, running through Feb. 10.
The tours are cheaper if you have a group of 20 or more, running a cool $35 per head with a $500 non-refundable deposit for all group tours. Individual tours are $40 per person with no deposit required. So scratch that thing about it being cheaper as a group. Nevermind.
The tour will give fans an "all-access" look at the Super Bowl facilities just weeks before the game between the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons, which is of course pure speculation on my part.
The tour will include a trolley to tour the outside of the stadium with all of the hospitality areas around the outside of the stadium.
You also get to tour the teams' locker rooms, known now as simply the AFC and NFC locker rooms. I wonder which conference gets the luxurious Cowboys locker room and which is stuck with the visitor's locker room. Oh, and you also get to check out the Cowboys Cheerleaders locker room. Don't get the wrong idea, fellas.
And to top it all off, you get to go down on the field where the Cowboys won TWO games this year, and countless high school players had good memories, not to mention the fact you get to go inside the interview room, where actual members of the media will be asking questions!
Easily worth the $40.
