1 year? Try 1 month (or less).


And what the he'll are they going to do with it? It's an ugly piece of shit.


Great place to watch a game, but the food facilities, bathrooms, parking lots, etc are all can not be saved...

Once you go to the new stadium you won't care about the old one anymore.

It was just a old stadium. Its like going to a old school, nothing is state of the art. Its gonna relieve alot of traffic in the area though. Last time I went to a rangers game, that stadium, is really starting to age as well.

"That stadium" that opened in 1994 and had a pretty decent renovation before the '09 season is really starting to age?

Agreed. I can't wait tiil they blow it up. Sure, it's part of local and Dallas Cowboy history, but all things come to an end. I'm certainly not going to shed a tear in my beer over it. But then again, Maston likes to cry when he drinks, so.....


And give me a shout the morning of, dickhead. I'm right up the road from there.

We've got a room for that night/morning, so we'll most likely be drinking up there all night in anticipation. It happens at daybreak btw, i may be a dickhead but even i know better than calling someone at 6-7a. Shoot me a text or PM tho.. dont think i have your number anymore. Isnt it like 6825252252525252 or some shit?

It's on a Sunday though, so we were thinking about drinking all night, and then heading over a little closer to see it fall down. The neighborhood I live in dead ends in to the Exxon Mobil property, to give you an idea. I don't know what hotel you guys are staying at (though I can only think of one right there with a good view of the stadium), and ya'll are more than welcome to come chill and drink throughout the evening.

I'll shoot you a pm.

It was around that time, I remember thinking the same thing. The new work they did before last season has it back in good shape.

Hey lowthreeohz where did you guys get a room at? That sounds like a really great idea I would like to do that myself. Anyone know any hotel names with views in the area?

Considering it is 15, going on 16 years old and sports stadiums have a lifespan of 30 years . . . I wouldn't call the Ballpark (Temple) new, but I wouldn't call it run down either. It's just showing it's age. A little faded here and there, but it's still greatness compared to what it replaced.

I believe it's a micro lodge. At least, that is the closest one to it. It's literally right across the highway. I don't know if that is where Kyle was talking about though.

I see a Day's Inn and Econo Lodge Inn both across the highway but they are both completely booked!

Is there any other Hotels/Motels in the area maybe that are higher up with a view or something?

it hasn't been decided on yet... they have talked about making it condos and some retail shops.
I think they should build a new mall because Irving Mall is now just as bad as the 6 flags mall

check out the link I posted at the top (about the 8th post) and click around on that page.. they have a lot of info on there and it has a short video of what they are doing right now and how the implosion should go on April 11th and they talk a little bit about the plans afterward

There are million dollar plus homes less than a mile away. Not too smart.

Actually I think it's already been decided. According to all the city managers and planners, it's going to be a high end outdoor mall, similar to Firewheel. It will be short enough distance to attract shoppers staying down in the Las Colinas Live area.

I'm suprised the old scoreboards are still up. I figured they could have sold those to someone.

They were talking about this on the ticket this morning. Apparently someone/some company bought the scoreboard for $100 but the cost to rent a crane to get it down and transporting it was too expensive so they left it there. Same thing for the sound system.
