A Major Attraction When Jerry Jones was touring the Metroplex to determine where to locate the new Cowboys Stadium, which would replace the iconic Texas Stadium in Irving, he made city officials promises that he would build the biggest and the best stadium in the world and it would attract world class events. He didn’t lie. It was announced yesterday that the first ever college football playoff championship game will be played at Cowboys Stadium. The national championship game will join a long list of events hosted by the stadium, including Super Bowl XLV, the 2010 NBA All-Star Game, bowling, bull riding and numerous college and high school football games. The NCAA men’s Final Four will come to the stadium next April. Add to those events two Manny Pacquiao fights and concerts by such international superstars as U2, Paul McCartney, and others, not to mention conventions and other assorted gatherings, and you have what Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck (who happens to the doctor that deliv...
