Thursday Thirteen #75 Dallas Cowboy Game

1. Arriving
On our way in we saw these ticket sellers who looked like they had been scalped--

After 105 minutes in traffic we finally parked across the freeway and walked about 3/4 of a mile to the stadium climbed the long ramps to the top

and this was our enexpected first view

2. What we knew to expect
Rowdy the mascot

Banners of our favorite Stars

the Cheerleaders

3. But what do you wear to a Cowboy game?
Opposing teams gear? Not me.

4.Crazy hats?

especially if you are this cute

5.Cowboy boots w/ shorts ? If you are a young cute girl

6.Your sparkly back to school shoes

7.Or do you just dress for the weather

because it was soooooo hot

8.We know many wear Cowboy gear but there were so many of these we had a hard time finding the real Tony



But there he is on the side lines w/ the rest of the starters


9.What do you eat?

10.We saw some Action
from the teams

the refs

and the other cowboys

11.We had some fun.

Thanks Marcia to respond so quickly. I'm with you, the same expression of sensibility, that's that's bring us closer together. I think watching so much blogs, we always keep in mind those that touches our feelings in a certain way.
Concerning your vacation destination, South America, Europe, no matter. You will find in one or in the other as much beauty to be amazed. When one looks at the world with a such interest in details of daily life as you do, you'll be enthusiastic wherever you'll go.
Concerning your today post, I couldn't be a transplanted American, because I ignore most of the rules of American Football.
But, but, but... I get a son, and a husband who are European Football ( we don't say soccer, just football) fans, so once again I can imagine the magic and the joy to participate to a match, sat on the stadium benches. We even share that.

After Hours said...

What are great display of your game. So where was the pick of Jessica Simpson? Isn't she supposed to be stuck like glue to Romo?

On a limb with Claudia said...

gosh Marcia, looks like you had a wonderful time! I love how you love them! (and it's always nice to see a little butt shot! ;)

Thanks, as always, for sharing your joy!

Rachel said...

I love watching your photography skills just keep on getting better. I love the angles that you catch and the hidden emotion... I wonder if the guy taking a HUGE bit of whatever it is he was eating would like that picture... I do!

Yes I am looking for a place to move to... have any suggestions... Looking for something safe, yet cheaper then more moola..

This reminds me of a cartoon strip in the paper the other day....[keep in mind Marty Robins' song...Streets of Laredo] guy, from Dallas team sitting on the bench, and another guy comes up and says to him: "I see by your outfit that you are a cowboy"....

Thanks for the visit today.

Oh Marcia! ~ You have no idea how "Special" this post is to me! I wanted to be there SO BAD! I wanted so bad to walk in the "Cowboy" Stadium~where all my favorite players have made history~before they go to the new stadium~ Touch Down Tony Dorsett, & Too Tall Jones,& Roger Stauback, Troy Aikman, Emitt Smith, Leon Lett,Williams,Newhouse,MOOSE,Michal Irving,Tony Romo, Roy williams to name a few! I know they have already sold out all tickes for home games so this practice was my only chance,:( I wanted so bad to be there, But I live in Va. ~Thanks to you and your wonderful photos & post ~It was 'almost as special as being there in person! THANKYOU! :D
Big Hugs!
Can I come back again and again & look at the pictures..?:)
