Cowboys Stadium a true wonder

Jerry Jones says he wanted the new Cowboys Stadium to be the greatest sports facility ever built. He says he wanted it to be bigger and better than anything anybody has ever seen, and that he was going for a "Wow! factor" in its design. Money was not an issue. He wanted Texas-big, and he got it. And initial reports of the place from every media outlet have all given it a big "Wow!" Can't wait to see it ...

Who the hell would buy this?

It's time to start getting excited about the 2009 season, and I don't want to be negative once training camp really kicks in, so let me get this out of the way now: Who would buy a piece of memorabilia like this? It's a tribute collage of Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman and Tony Romo. Sorry, but Romo does not belong in this company. Staubach and Aikman are Hall of Famers who helped the Cowboys win five Super Bowls and eight NFC titles. Romo has never even won one playoff game. He is not even the third greatest quarterback in Dallas history. As of today, both Don Merideth and Danny White were better. Don't you think memorabilia like this is jumping the gun a bit? I support Tony and obvioulsy want him to do well, and even if he wins just one Super Bowl someday I could deal with it, but right now, stuff like this is just plan stupid. Agree?
