The Cowboys have sold over 20,000 standing-room tickets for their official stadium opener Sunday and have a shot to break the NFL attendance record....if only they can can convince a few people to buy actual seats.
Dallas has until 7:15 tonight to sell their remaining reserve tickets for the Giants game or risk being blacked out on local TV. Team officials say they have "no doubt" that all tickets will be sold and the team will avoid its first blackout since 1990, but as of 11:00 a.m. there are still a few hundred tickets unsold. And they may be severely overestimating the number of Texans willing to pay $239 a pop (plus convenience fees!) to sit in the fourth deck. Especially when they can pay $29 for a "Party Pass" and just poach the unoccupied seats.
