Texas Stadium is the home field of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. It is located at Irving, Texas, a suburb of Dallas, and opened on October 24, 1971, at a cost of $35 million. The stadium seats 65,675. Built to replace the aging Cotton Bowl, the stadium was to have originally been a domed stadium, but the stadium could not support the weight of the entire roof, and public funding ran out before the roof support structure could be modified. This resulted in most of the stands being enclosed but not the playing field itself. This unusual arrangement – more commonly seen in European soccer stadiums – prompted Cowboys linebacker D.D. Lewis to make his now-famous quip that the “hole” in the stadium’s roof was there “so that God can watch His team.” Texas Stadium – The SI Vault Wiki
