No Bull, Cowboys Stadium Gets a Rodeo



    The house that Jerry built gets custom everything -- massive HD screens, fan-accessible player's tunnel, and now it's own Professional Bull Riding format.

    On Feb. 20, Cowboys Stadium will host the PBR's "Dickies Iron Cowboy Invitational," a new format competition that puts riders head to head in two arenas. Unlike classic bull-riding, which is just a race to see how long you stay on, this event has riders trying to stay on the bucking bull longer than their opponent, guaranteeing their advance up the tournament-style bracket.

    If having a brand new competition style and double the usual number of arenas wasn't enough, Cowboys Stadium snagged another record on Thursday by becoming the largest dirt arena in the world (according to the Guinness Book, of course).

    Tickets run from $20 to $150 to see the rollicking rodeo action, country singer Gary Allen, and, of course, a fireworks show.
