The Farewell Thanksgiving

After an amazing 13-3 season, albeit no playoff win, the Dallas Cowboys began the 2008 campaign, knowing it would be the last time they would play at Texas Stadium. In that spirit, the fans in us began planning in late summer attendance to the last Thanksgiving game ever in The House that Landry Built.

We tailgated lightly, that is, avoided overindulgence in all things drink and food, as a Thanksgiving feast awaited us upon our return. That and we took my girls to the game, as the Jonas Brothers provided the halftime show, as well as Demi Lovato offered the National Anthem.

This scene will be no more, as the Dallas Cowboys will break-in the new stadium in Arlington in the 2009 season, a stadium 5.2 miles from my front door. Without a doubt, we'll be back in the new house to cheer the Cowboys, but for now...for this year, we said good-bye to that great house with so many memories...
