I grew up watching my dad watch the Dallas Cowboys, and it’s the Cowboys that brought my husband and me to Dallas. Well, in a way it is! My husband was hired by an engineering firm to work on the new Cowboy stadium!
He actually got to work on site! One day he came home with a Dallas Cowboy Christmas ornament that Jerry Jones personally handed him. I thought that was pretty cool!
I couldn’t imagine the huge screen my husband described would be hanging from the center of the stadium! Out of all the super neat things about the stadium my husband designed…the concrete floors and beams. Ah well someone had to do it!
And now this weekend we have the opportunity to meet one of the Dallas Cowboy players and so do you! Wright Brand Bacon along with a Dallas Cowboy will be hosting a demo at participating Sam’s Clubs in the Dallas area this weekend 1/19-1/20 from 1-4. You could meet…
- Tony Casillas: Two-time Super Bowl champion and Pro-Bowler Tony Casillas remains active in his retirement from the NFL with his business endeavors and his commitment to working to improve his community.
- Chad Hennings: A former defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys who won three Super Bowls in the early nineties. He is currently an author and motivational speaker.
- Rocket Ismail: Raghib “Rocket” Ismail is a former NFL and CFL wide receiver and kick returner. After a successful Grey Cup MVP season in the CFL, Ismail spent time with the Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys. He was a prolific college standout and national champion at Notre Dame, also finishing second in the Heisman Trophy voting.
- Ed “Too Tall” Jones: A Super Bowl champion and three-time Pro Bowler for the Dallas Cowboys, Ed “Too Tall” Jones was a dominating presence on the football field as a defensive end. He was the 1st overall selection of the 1974 NFL entry draft, and was the first player from a Historically Black College and University to ever be selected first overall.
- Jay Novacek: Jay Novacek is one of the greatest tight-ends to ever play the game. He is a three-time Super Bowl champion and five-time Pro Bowler for the Dallas Cowboys. The former Wyoming Cowboy was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008.
- Everson Walls: His eight years with the Cowboys is filled with accolades and accomplishments. In his rookie year, he broke the single season record with 11 interceptions. He was named to the Pro Bowl team in 1981, 1982, 1983 and 1985. In 1981, 1982 and 1985 he led the NFL in interceptions.

We will be sampling a BLT—made with the new Wright Brand Bacon Buffalo flavor on Mrs. Baird’s bread. AND it just so happens the Buffalo flavor will be on sale for 1/2 price! I can’t wait to try it, and see how mine turns out when I make my own BLTs at home!

I think it is really neat and quite an honor that your husband got to work on a new stadium. There is nothing like a football game on a cold December day, and being there in person! I can’t imagine the time or manpower it takes to build, maintain, and run a professional stadium. He should really be proud of himself!
That said, I am not sure my family would want to meet a Cowboy….we are Eagles fans 😉 😀
Hmmm – I’ve never heard of any of them. I would just want to meet Troy Aikman 😉 I was in love with him in jr. high
So cool that your husband helped design that stadium. That hanging TV is incredible!
I love this stadium, matter of fact I’m going tomorrow again, this is going to be my fifth time there. Days before the Superbowl i went to one of the stadium’s tour, it was so exciting i got to see how the half time was going to look like and the black eyed peas rehearsal. 🙂
