The secret is out, Jerry Jones wants the best. Actually, it is hardly a secret to anyone who remotely knows anything about the Dallas Cowboys. Cowboys Stadium is a testament to that. Cowboys Stadium has the largest TV in the world, the largest crowd in NBA history for the NBA All-Star game, just recently the largest crowd to see a boxing match in I-don’t-know-how-many-years, a Paul McCartney concert, a George Strait concert, the largest this, the largest that, etc. It will also host next year’s Super Bowl. Jerry can’t buy the Cowboys a Super Bowl, but he darned sure can get the NFL’s “largest” game to come to the stadium! Don’t believe me? Just go the world-wide web and log on to northtexassuperbowl.com.
There you can find anything you want or didn’t want to know about the 2011 Super Bowl, or XLV. I can’t tell you what number the next Super Bowl will be, mainly because I can’t understand what Roman numeral that is. Let’s see X stands for something, L stands for something and V stands for something. Maybe 45, but only because I watched this year’s game and I lost count of how many times they flashed on the TV screen that is was the 44th. The website even has a countdown clock on it, telling how many days, minutes and seconds until game time. The last time I looked at it, the clock read 320-something days, so many hours, so many minutes and so many seconds.
You can find out who all is on the executive committee, little pictures and a small synopsis of each. Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman – if you know anything at all about the Cowboys, you might remember them as Dallas QBs of the past -- are the top dogs. Emmitt Smith is on the committee, so is Darryl “Moose” Johnston and T. Boone Pickens, Cowboys (the OSU version) money bags. The website has all the sponsors, what you need to do in case you want to be a volunteer, even a little ditty, sang by Staubach, Tony Romo and others to the tune of a Faith Hill song, This Kiss. Also, there’s an interview with Faith Hill, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Yep, Jerry holds nothing back. He’s got all the big names and big guns out for this little venture. If you want to spend boo coo bucks, you can be there, too.
