    Cheerleaders Check out New Digs

    Players and fans aren't the only ones getting used to updated digs at the new Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

    The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders have an expanded area at the $1.15 billion retractable-roof venue.

    The famed troupe of dancers and internationally known good-will performers, with their own reality TV show, had limited space at Texas Stadium in Irving.

    The Dallas Morning News reported Thursday that the previous dressing area for the cheerleaders had little mirror space, few electrical outlets and two leaky toilets.

    The new Cowboys Stadium, hosting its first NFL preseason game Friday against Tennessee, features what veteran squad member Justine Phillips calls "the ultimate in luxury for a cheerleader."

    Each cheerleader has her own locker, mirror and storage space, plus there are more than double the number of commodes.
