Thanksgiving Day Reflection - in Jurrah World

I was fortunate enough to attend Thursday's game and have a field pass and access to the Miller Lite Club (behind the Cowboy bench at field level). What a GREAT day it was.

A few observations:

1. Jurrah world is a pretty cool place. Other than the fact it is the Cowpuke home, it truly is an incredible place.
2. During pregame warmups, you could sense the Skins were beaming with confidence. I was one of about 20-25 Redskin fans on the field and on numerous occasions players would run by me and acknowledge my fist pumping with a confident head nod, smile and or fist pump of their own. D Hall, Baker, Garcon, Lorenzo Alexander, London were all noticeably fired up and ready to go. My buddy who is a Cowboy fan commented on his players looking like they were asleep and not bouncing around like the Skins players. Clearly this showed up in the game during the 2nd quarter.
3. There were a shitload of Redskin fans in the house! The RGIII chants at the end of the half were really pissing off the Cowboy fans.
4. The Cowboy fans are really pretty cool, at least in the Miller Lite Club where you have to have some coin to get in. I was only told one time by the security dude to remember where I was and to be careful about midway through the 2nd quarter HAHAHAHAH!

Here are a few pics:






Overall it was a FANTASTIC day! I already have tickets for next years game, with the same access. Hopefully we will get another epic win in Dallas!

Love the direction this team is going! HTTR!!!

Re: Thanksgiving Day Reflection - in Jurrah World

pretty cool. I know a couple people that went to the skins game last year at Jerry World and said it was very impressive.

More of Jerry's World.... lol.

Jerry Jones not happy with RG3 after loss | Yardbarker.com

Jerry Jones wants nothing to do with RG3
Posted by Sports-Glory on November 23, 2012 at 10:53amView Sports Blog.Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wants nothing to do with Robert Griffin III after the Washington Redskins rookie quarterback threw four touchdowns to beat the Cowboys 38-31 Thursday.
"I just think that hopefully we don't have to play RG3 but one more time," Jones said via USA Today. "I'd hate to think we'd have to line up against him five or six more times. I'm not trying to be funny… On at least two of those throws, I don't know how you could cover them any better, and there might have been as many as five or six of them."
Griffin went 20 of 28 passing for 311 yards and four touchdowns and added 29 yards on the ground.
"It is very disappointing," Jones said. "I have to almost pinch myself to realize that (Griffin) was out here playing against Texas Tech almost a year ago and here he is really doing a number on us."
The Cowboys are 5-6, in third place in the NFC East, but Jones isn't ready to call the season over.
"All I can do is sit here and look at the numbers," Jones said. "I can't enthusiastically say that our odds (are good), because I don't know what the Giants are going to do. I'm not trying to be negative, but we've got to play these guys (the Redskins) again."

Thanks for sharing the pics! You got to attend a hell of a game in my opinion. RGIII's opening act for all the world to see on Thanksgiving day.

Re: Thanksgiving Day Reflection - in Jurrah World

I feel like we give Dallass too much credit for being RG3's "opening night" His opening night was in New Orleans earlier this year, and it was awesome.

Sure it's Thanksgiving, but it's not like people haven't seen RG3 before this. This was more like a homecoming, but only because he went to Baylor.

Good on the Cowgirls and Jerry building a great stadium, but they are not special in anyway other than our taking a little extra pleasure beating them as a historical rival.

I feel the same way. Yeah maybe a few more people got to see him, but I'm guessing there have been highlights if him throughout the season.

It was nice to embarrass the Cowboys stat wise and on national tv. I called almost every INT. I told my son-in-law who is a Dallas fan, everytime Dallas is behind and its late Romo is good for trying to do too much and will throw INT's.

Nice.

And the OP's story is cool and I appreciate him and the others that post what it's like being at some games. Just always hated the extra attention the Cowgirls get on Thanksgiving.
