Peewee football in the Dallas Cowboy stadium!

Zane’s Kids Inc. football team decided to participate in a tournament played in the AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.  Well, of course we planned the end of our trip just to go see this event! 

What a chance for these kids. They were scheduled to play three games, on half the field, from the 20 yard line, for about 20-30 minutes each.  Due to some teams not showing I believe they ended up playing five game from 4:10 to about 7:30!  I know they had to be pumped and then very tired boys.  Our boys are ages 9-10 and did play up a couple of games.  One team I think, the first one, was probably closer to age 12.  That is a big age difference at these ages.  But they were troopers.

Zane normally plays defensive end, tackle, and kicker.  There were not kicks for these games and our center, Aidan, was not there, due to a wedding.  Yes, I think that took priority.  So Zane, who has played center in the past, took over that position. 

Yes, those screens are HUGE!  Ross thinks we need one.  Those are our boys down in the bottom of the picture.  Raiders!  11-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 00411-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 007A little pregame coaching. 11-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 00811-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 009And out onto the field.

After the games we got to go on the field for some photo ops and tour part of the stadium.  We would sure like to go back and do a guided tour.  I know we missed a lot this way.

Zane wanted to do a silly move but it did blur a bit. Oh well, here you go Zane. 11-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 11511-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 11011-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 11711-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 119Some of the interior stuff…11-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 125Look at those rolls of turf!11-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 126These are the halls behind the field.11-07-15 Zane FB Dallas stadium 127Press speakers…We did get some pics of the cheerleaders dressing room but missed the players.

That’s it.  From here we went to our respective “homes” and then headed home the next day. We are home and busy on washing and cleaning out the trailer.  Fun Fun  And we are freezing!  I think we need to go to Florida or California or even far south Texas!  Maybe someday.

Thanks for looking!
