Texas Stadium looks like...

...it was built by Fred Flintstone. It may have been state of the art when it opened but it looks like a pile of cinder blocks today. When I rode by, I wondered how the Dallas Cowboys could exist in such a structure in today's NFL. Ravens (M&T Bank) Stadium is a thing of beauty as far as I am concerned and would be difficult to top. Then I saw the new facility Jerry Jones is building for 2009.

Day-yum!

Dallas Cowboys New Stadium

Make sure you do the stadium fly through.

Welcome to Wembley Stadium
Thanks for the accuracy in the above comment. Wembly appears that it would fit nicely in the corner of the new Cowboys stadium (and I'm not even a Cowboys fan).

How can they call it Wembley? Is it built on the same site?

Are you referring to the Half-Astrodome?

You should drive west on I-30 and check out The Ballpark. It's a work of art. Cowboy stadium is being torn down soon.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Didn't have enough time and now I'm back in Baltimore. Hell, I never even saw Swisher Road!
