As you may recall, Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys were looking to borrow $350 million to aid financing for their brand new
stadium outside Dallas, which is really no big deal in this stable economic environment.
But, remember, this is not a team short on creativity (and yes, by that I mean "desperation for money"). Which would explain their recent no-holds-barred online auction for everything you can possibly find in Texas Stadium. (Exploding hand pounds to Larry Brown for the find.)
The official Texas Stadium auction begins this morning right here. From today through Dec. 6, fans can bid on select memorabilia from the 35-year-old joint.
And by "select memorabilia," what the Dallas Observer meant to say was "anything you can get your GD hands on that could possibly get the Cowboys enough money for that down payment on the $350 million loan they need."
