The Other Lead – Your Sports Weekend in GIFs, Pics and Video

We’ll start in Dallas where the Cowboys and Broncos combined for the 4th highest point total in NFL history. The Broncos won 51-48 with a field goal as time expired, but the highlight reel for this one might take half an hour to get through. Here’s Tony Romo showing us he can still evade pressure and deliver:


Because of the way AT&T Stadium is set up, the shadows and sunlight can give you some unique views of NFL football. Not too many 3:30 kickoffs in Arlington, but when they do happen you get pictures like these:

The MLB playoffs are in full swing and while the Dodgers are up 2-1 on the Braves, ex-Dodger manager Tommy Lasorda wonders aloud to Magic Johnson what just happened after pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu couldn’t find first base with his foot to make the out. I’ll leave it up to you to lip read:


In the American League, the Red Sox are up 2-0 and will try to sweep the Rays out of the ALDS tonight in Tampa. David Ortiz took Cy Young-winner David Price deep twice in game 2, here’s the first:

By next week we’ll be into the League Championship Series in baseball and have a sole team in 1st place in the NFC East after the Cowboys-Redskins game on Sunday. This could be the best weekend in sports yet.

Cowboys Stadium is a fantastic experience

The Dallas Cowboys hosted their first football game this weekend, a preseason game against the Tennessee Titans. But this match up was not about the game, the big story was the new Cowboys Stadium. This was the first NFL game played in Jerry Jones’ new billion dollar stadium and the buzz about the stadium has been deafening. If this were the opening for a new Broadway show, then now you could say that it is getting rave reviews because people seem to love the new Cowboys Stadium.

Fox broadcaster Joe Buck said, “There is nothing like this stadium anywhere in this country, or maybe anywhere else for that matter.”  The Daily Oklahoman dubbed it the “Jones Mahal” and a writer for the Fort Worth Star Telegram proclaimed Jerry Jones as the “stadium king”. A few TicketCity employees who attended the game said that they cannot even describe how amazing it is; and these are people who have been in hundreds of the top stadiums on the planet.

So the reviews are in and they are all positive. Well, except for a little problem there having with the scoreboard. Here are some photos of Cowboys Stadium that we took on a visit to it in June 2009. Here is the Cowboys Stadium seating chart. You can see what an amazing venue it is; so when are you going to visit Cowboys Stadium?

The Dallas Cowboys have 9 more home games in 2009 at their new Cowboys Stadium, that is 8 regular-season NFL games plus another preseason game against the 49ers.

If you don’t want to shell out the money on the first game, there are other more affordable options later in the season.
