If You Haven't Heard . . .

. . . whether Arlington/Dallas will host the 2011 Super Bowl, think about a drumroll and click here. Edit: Found this elsewhere: "If you listened, I found it quite humorous that Jerry Jones did not thank Laura Miller by name while thanking [Fort Worth Mayor Mike] Moncrief and Arlington's mayor [Dr. Kenneth Noisewater] specifically by name. Instead he thanked 'Dallas City Government.'" Edit #2: (From the Dallas Morning News)

The voting was by secret ballot.

Mr. Jones declined to discuss the voting, beyond saying that it went to the maximum fourth ballot. (On the first three ballots, the votes of three-fourths of the owners are needed. After that, it becomes a simple-majority contest between the two top contenders.)

Jim Irsay, owner of the Colts, said he was told the final vote was 17-15 in favor of North Texas.

was there ever any doubt. but with staubauch as the spokesman it was questionable. he is a real dip shit.
i remember one game when he was commentating, someone made mention of the fact that tom landry did'nt rant and rave and in fact didn't say a whole lot. and dumb ass staubauch made the statement " yes , tom landry is a man of small talk" . we nearly shit our pants laughing so hard.
we quote him on that frequently.
as smart as i thought roger was, i was completely leveled that day.

Jerry finally sold his soul this morning....I knew if I dangled that Super Bowl carrot long enough he would give in.

You're going to regret that deal, Beelzebub.

Maybe I should start saving now so I can afford a ticket.

Now, let's hope they finish that new stadium by 2011.

Not sure where your poster got "Kenneth Noisewater."

But Jerry clearly thanked Moncrief (first!) and Arlington Mayor Bob Cluck.

Did Jerry buy carbon credits from Al Gore to fly his private jet back and forth?
