No stadium current Cowboys owner and general Jerry Jones could ever build will live up to the majesty that was Texas Stadium. What this Irving, TX landmark lacked in amenities, it made up in history. It was a monument to everything the Dallas Cowboys had become since their inception in 1960. Opening the same year Dallas won their first of five Super Bowl titles (1971), Texas Stadium became iconic and was synonymous with those successful 1970′s teams under head coach Tom Landry. With it’s unique open roof, the blue stars adorning the upper rim of the stadium, and the blue wall interior embellished with white stars;  it was truly one of a kind. And for those of us lucky enough to grow up Cowboys fans, it was even a bit magical. The final Cowboys game took place there in December of 2008. It was sadly demolished two years later.

    The Star says it all for me. The symbol (design and colors) in itself encompasses everything that is the true soul of the Dallas Cowboys. Every great person / thing that made us smile shines inside that eternal star.

    Great article. I agree with every one of the ten. I’ve been a Cowboys fan for nearly all my life, and I wouldn’t trade cheering for the Boys for anything! I do miss the days of Landry & Staubach, Dorsett & Pearson, White & Martin …. I could go on and on. Looking forward to the return of the glory days, hopefully sometime soon! But, good or bad, it’ll always be Go Cowboys!
