Cowboys Unveil New Stadium

It's been cloaked in secrecy for months, but now, the design for the Dallas Cowboys new stadium has been unveiled.  Leave it to owner Jerry Jones to blow the socks off the NFL.   Even in artist renditions, the new Texas Stadium is breathtaking. Eight years in the making, Jerry Jones and the Cowboys have designed a structure so massive, the Statue of Liberty herself could fit inside as a fan. Going even further, the entire American Airlines Center, where the Mavericks and Stars play, could also fit inside. It will become the largest domed structure in the world. Yes, domed.  It will have an enclosed roof, but will be retractable in order to maintain that signatureTexas Stadium look. Up to 100,000 fans will be able to watch the Cowboys play, and they'll be treated to the largest video board in the world, suspended 110 feet directly over the center of the playing surface, extending from the 20-yard line to the 20-yard line.  It is 180 feet long, and the equivalent of watching a 6o-inch HDTV in your living room. The entire structure will be supported by two, massive steal trusses, each spanning a quarter of a mile long, which is more than twice as long as the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. With glass, retractable doors in each end zone, a Cowboys hall of fame and pro shop, 200 suites, 15,000 club level seats, and 286 concession points, the new Texas Stadium promises to be America's premiere sporting facility... Only fitting to house America's team. The stadium is scheduled to be completed by the start of the 2009 season, at a cost of around $1 billion.
