God, you richies are so smart, that's exactly why I'm not heavy into activities.

Let's all please take a moment to cringe and go "Ooooh, does that suck!" just for me. This monstrosity is not only being built within my city (apparently its actual name is The Cowboys New Stadium, as best I can tell), and is about twenty minutes from my house, but no. It gets a billion times worse. My city won the bid for the 2011 Super Bowl.

I live in Arlington.

D and I decided we'll just have to figure out where to vacation Jan-Feb 2011, it's fine.

And this fucking thing seats 95,000. That almost the same size as my hometown of Denton. Infact, while I'm looking, Arlington's own population is under 400,000! Although at $900 a ticket (yes, seriously), I think these people will be cramming up the Dallas hotels rather than Arlington's...

I guess it's not as bad as the Texas Motor Speedway being where it is; after all, it's one Super Bowl. TMS brings in oodles of white trash biannually.

Jesus. North Texas just keeps getting better and better...

Plus? "Situated next to the future Cowboys stadium, the Glorypark..."

GLORYPARK?? (Is that like a glory hole?)

Also, wait. Wikipedia says Denton's motto is "north of ordinary"? There is no way that is not a prank.

"North of Ordinary"?? Snicker. I missed that. How about: "In 2006, Denton was selected by Money magazine as one of the 'Top 100 Best Places to Live in America.'"

AS IF. #100 maybe.

I think Denton's motto should be "Actually a whole lot better than the rest of Texas except maybe for Austin. No really."

Is the artists' conception there supposed to remind me of a deflated football?

Think of all the commerce, otherwise the terrorists win...


PS: lol a the 'glory hole' connection, I'm sure the jocks would love that...

it's texas in general ;(

Veloute said...

Well, I know a nice place to visit in Jan/Feb '11.

"The Cowboys New Stadium"

"Gloryhole" (LMAO!) Oh wait, "Glorypark"?

I thought Denton's motto was:"Home of Happiness".

Yes, you are right. That really does suck.

Veloute said...

Wow, that was terribly unclear (I'm tired)...I mean you should come north then and I was laughing at the names of these places XD.

What happens when the stadium is...old?

Look on the bright side, at least D isn't dragging you to that kind of shit and you CAN get away. What gets me about most sports fans is, by and large(and I mean large), they're not even remotely athletic.

Ellen Aim said...

Blanco: It really is, isn't it? *sigh*

Vel: Lol, I knew what you meant! I have ADD, too, so I didn't even notice. We're perfect.

Home of Happiness. Very Stepford.

MacD: Truly a HUGE, HUGE plus on the ol' D man. I don't think I appreciate that as often as I should. I just don't know what the hell I'd do.

On the other hand, whenever I ask him where he wants to travel he says, "Universal Studios!" (Or: "Disney World in Florida!") And then there's this pause and I re-direct.

Lol...they are a bit large aren't they...nothing like a large angry sports fanatic!

Veloute said...

Okay, I want to go to Disney World in Florida. Why don't we all go and you and Doug can grumble together?

I know, I know, the crowds suck ass, I KNOW. But I still want to go. When the kids are slightly older, mind you.
