Behold, Jonestown Coliseum!

The Cowboys unveiled their humongous new home in Arlington this week, with owner Jerry Jones delivering a keynote address about how the $1.15 billion stadium is a sign for struggling Americans that times will get better.

Not sure how much of that stadium cost was invested in pyrotechnics, skydivers or marching bands, but Wednesday afternoon had plenty of all of that.

The stadium has already attracted George Strait and Super Bowls and Big 12 football games and NBA All-Star Games and ...

In Dallas we have Trinity River projects (maybe), convention center hotels (why?) and a $50 million renovated Cotton Bowl (hosting only Michael Irvin's reality show).

Call it a push?

We've got Jones' comments to the fans and political bigwigs over on Unfair Park, and more photos in this slideshow from the ceremony.
