happy birthday cowboys

50 years ago today, the Dallas Cowboys joined the NFL family. i have been so lucky to be a part of this team and this company. who wouldn't want to work for "America's team?" i don't care how many people say they hate the Cowboys, i am not buying it. you, my friend, are just jealous that you aren't one! everyone loves the Cowboys. everyone wants to be a Cowboy. even when they're loosing. that's right, you heard me. if you're truly a fan, you love 'em even when they're loosing.

i have been especially lucky to be a part of the team during the last 2 years. lots of special, history making events have happened during my time here. Farewell to Texas Stadium. For 37 years, Texas Stadium is where the Dallas Cowboys called home. Built in 1971, this stadium was state-of-the-art! The stadium with the whole in the roof, ya know, so God can watch His team play. While it was well overdue for a new stadium, because this one had seen its day, lots of great memories happened there. To read more about this legendary stadium check out this site:

Inaugural Season at Cowboys Stadium. Let me just tell you, this place is no stadium. It is a work of art. It's like nothing you've ever seen. Often referred to as "Jerryworld," and "The Jerry Dome." It is the largest domed structure in the world. It is the largest column free interior building. It has the largest high definition video board in the world, stretching from 20 yard line to 20 yard line. It has the largest sliding glass doors in the world. A retractable roof modeled after Texas Stadium, again, so God can watch His team play. It seats 80,000 people, with availability to seat 100,000. At a cost of $1.2 billion, it is one of the most expensive sports venues ever built. In 2011 it will host Super Bowl XLV. Which, of course, the Cowboys will be playing in. Duh!

Now today. Dallas Cowboys 50th Birthday. It was this day back in 1960 that the league voted to expand, and as they say, the rest is history. Read this article from the Dallas Cowboys website, to see the whole story of how the team was formed. http://www.dallascowboys.com/news/news.cfm?id=7608C500-E2F5-D429-44C274C9BE99675C.

So, as you can see I've gotten to experience some history since I began working for the Cowboys. I am excited to see what happens next. Super Bowl win in our own home town next season? I'm just sayin'...
