It’s been a good 15+ years since the Dallas Cowboys held an open practice at Texas Stadium.

Wednesday, the Cowboys opened it up for the local fans, free of charge.

Why?  To thank the fans, and say goodbye to Texas Stadium.

The parking lot at Texas Stadium was halfway packed…as was the stadium.

The Cowboy stars took the field….and before I get to the “on the field” stars, let me show the “sideline stars”.

Yup, the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders where there, in full force.

They were there for the autograph session, which turned into a rainy mess (I’ll get to that in another post, with pictures).

The players showed up on the field….offense in light colors, defense in dark colors.

Zach Thomas, below, walked out a little later.

Tony Romo, below, was one of the last to come running out of the big helmet.

Jerry Jones walked to the sidelines….and waved to the cheering crowd. I’ve never seen an owner get such a reaction from the crowd.

Coming up, what do you get when you mix Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders and rain?

Plus, what was a certain, high profile, out of state politician doing at Texas stadium?

Answers and pictures to follow.
