The Cowboys seemingly spared no expense in building the new $1.15 Cowboys Stadium. And they get much credit for the getting the facility up and running for today's inaugural event _ the George Strait concert featuring Reba Mcentire.
From all initial reports, the stadium is receiving rave reviews from concession workers who began arriving before noon in preparation for the 5 p.m. concert.
However, there is at least one minor glitch to report. There are no straws for the drinks. The Cowboys went over every detail, perfecting the mega pixels of the giant high definition video screen. But they forgot the straws.
It's a nit pick _ but one fans will certainly notice when they purchase the $6 soft drinks.
Of course, Jerry Jones doesn't have to look far to assess blame. Jones is a part owner of Legends Hospitality, which manages the concessions at Cowboys Stadium.
