Cowboys Tickets Go on Sale

Football fans lined up outside Cowboys Stadium as early as 7 a.m. -- three hours before ticket counters opened -- for the first day of ticket sales Friday.

And the first few dozen fans to line up had more than Cowboys fans.

"There are 50 people in line, and 45 of them are [Pittsburgh] Steelers fans," joked one fan in line.

He wasn't too far off. Of the first 60 or so fans in line, about one-quarter were Steelers fans in line to purchase tickets to the Cowboys-Steelers game in December.

As fans waited for the box office to open, there was plenty of friendly trash talking -- Cowboys fans ripping Bears fans, Bears fans ripping Cowboys fans, everyone ripping Steelers fans.

But no matter whom they came to see, they all came to score tickets.

Darrell Romero got exactly what he was looking for.

"It was well worth the wait, because we don't have to pay surcharges or anything -- just come here and get your tickets," said Romero, a Cowboys fan who purchased tickets to three games.

Others weren't so lucky.

Irene Cervantes and her husband made a trip from Midland in the hopes of landing tickets to the Steelers game.

"I've been up since 2:30 this morning getting here," she said. "But they didn't have what we needed. They had one ticket here, one ticket there, whatever, but nothing together."

It was the same story for Stan Caldwell, a Chicago Bears fan who lives in Hurst and waited in line for three hours.

"They don't have any tickets; they have no tickets," he said. "They have tickets to some games, but I needed eight for the Bears game, and they don't have anything together."

Despite his lack of success at the ticket counter, Caldwell said he would still watch the game on his big screen at home, where he'll be sure to have the best seat in the house.
