David O'Daniel got to the parking lots at Texas Stadium at 1:15 to secure a spot for today's tailgate. Complete with food, drinks, a TV and a satellite dish, O'Daniel and his friends had their tailgate hopping by 2:30 -- 30 minutes after the parking lots here at Texas Stadium opened. Their cheers of "T" and "O" could be heard from all the way from the pedestrian bridge over the highway.
These diehard Cowboys fans had no qualms when asked which team in tonight's contest was better. Of course, they picked the Cowboys. But why?
"They have five rings," said Chris Regalado.
"They're America's Team. People in Thailand are going to be watching tonight's game because of the Cowboys," added Jason Pearce.
"Everything is better in Texas," said Ray Redd. "Of course the Cowboys are better. The Packers are from Wisconsin, the Cowboys are from Texas. Where would you rather be - Wisconsin or Texas?"
O'Daniel: Cowboys, 31-24
Regalado: Cowboys, 42-17
Pearce: Cowboys, 21-10
Redd: Cowboys, 35-20
