Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: North Texas Gets the 2011 SuperBowl XLV

North Texas Gets the 2011 SuperBowl XLV

The new "Dallas" Cowboy's stadium in "Arlington" isn't even built yet, and we have already won the bid for the 2011 SuperBowl XLV!!  How does that happen?  I guess the pictures of what the stadium is supposed to look like blew them away enough to not care that it's not built yet.

I also wonder if the Cowboys will continue to be call the DALLAS Cowboys since the new stadium is in Arlington.  Granted, the current stadium is in Irving, which isn't Dallas, however, it is in Dallas County.  Arlington is not in Dallas County, it is in Tarrant County.  Will the start calling them the Texas Cowboys, or the North Texas Cowboys... We already have a stadium called the "Rangers Stadium in Arlington" which is a new name from the first which was "The Ballpark in Arlington".  Who comes up with these stupid names?  At least they're descriptive and tell you where the Ballpark is located.

North Texas has never hosted a Superbowl, though Houston has hosted it twice, in 1974 and in 2004.  HERE is the rest of the story about the bid for the Superbowl.

Donna - so Jerry got one of his biggest wishes.  Now if the jerk will just stay out of coaching the Cowboys may just have a chance to end up in that game.

I agree that Jerry is too involved.  He hired a coach for a reason, and he needs to let the coach do his job.  They need to ban him from being on the sideline.

If they use the same naming system as baseball's Angels, they could be the Dallas Cowboys of Arlington. I agree on the stadium names, it seems a little redundant to have the city name. All of the great stadiums stand on their own -- Lambeau Field, Soldier Field, Fenway Park, Yankee Stadium, etc. And please, no corporate or .com names.

They will remain the Dallas Cowboys. Regardless of the botched job Dallas city leaders did of trying to get the team to move the Dallas.

I'm excited to have the Super Bowl here.  As a Cowboy season ticket holder, I hope I'll get a chance to buy Super Bowl tickets!!  Want would have made it better would have been if the stadium was in Dallas and not in Arlington.  I hate driving to Arlington for everything!

South Central Texas (San Antonio, TX) congratulates North Texas on hosting Super Bowl XLV in 2011!!  As a lifetime Dallas Cowboys fan, I hope they can get their act together and will be playing in that game -- like the good ole days!

Tickets are going to start at about $900!!!  They are also going to have 10,000 people in each endzone that is stand-up only with cocktail tables.  I can't imagine standing through an entire game, but I guess lots of guys are used to that when they go to a sports bar and it's standing room only.

      That is great for Texas, but I am sorry I do not think either the Cowboys or the Texans will be playing in it. But it is still great for Texas.
