Texas Stadium

On this day in 1971, the Dallas Cowboys played their first game in Texas Stadium, beating the Patriots, 44-21.  In 2009, we will have to say a sad good-bye to the old stadium, as it gets plowed over to make room for some “upscale living” sites.  From 1971-today there has some outstanding talent and outrageous personalities on the fields and the sidelines at Texas Stadium; hopefully, the new stadium in Arlington, will not betray the Cowboys’ status as a local and national institution.  

Relive the earlier days of the cowboys at the Denton Public Library:
