Football Weekends in Texas

It's back-to-school time in Texas and that can mean only one thing for weekends -- football. Friday night is high school football. We attended our school's game Friday night. We are a TAPPS 1-A school so our team plays 6-man football. They have the 45-point rule. I think the rule basically states that if one team has 45 or more points than the other at the end of any quarter then the game is over. I think the score at halftime was 61-0. Our favor. Needless to say, the game was over.

As fun as that was (and it was fun, BTW) the big fun for the weekend was going to the new Cowboys Stadium. Someone at our church gave us tickets to the Dallas Cowboys preseason game this past Saturday night. We've watched the stadium going up -- it's in Arlington and close to where our kids play basketball. Besides, it's humongous and can be seen from quite a distance. We've heard the news reports about the BILLION dollars spent on it's construction. People we know have paid money to go tour the stadium. It is amazing, I'm not gonna lie. Check out the video board -- it's humongous!
And here we are in our seats, in the upper concourse.
(Ok, I've typed another paragraph to put here at least four times and have deleted it each time. I guess I don't really have anything else to say about football, the Cowboys or their stadium.)
Have a great day! Jeanette
