Launching Texas' Newest Futbol Stadium .....

America's newest sports venue is getting a proper breaking-in this month, though fans of football (throwball) may be rolling their eyes in dismay.

ARLINGTON, TEXAS – The view from Seat 1, Row 26 in Section 437, high above the field, was just fine, Susan Garcia reported midway through the historic first sporting event at Cowboys Stadium ... a CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal soccer doubleheader that featured Costa Rica's 5-1 pummeling of Guadeloupe and Mexico's 4-0 walkover over Haiti.

A crowd of more than 80,000 attended the CONCACAF match. Attendance may be just as large tonight, when the new Texas Stadium hosts its second sporting event, another soccer match ... this time, a World Football Challenge match between two top teams, Englands Chelsea F.C. and Mexicco's Club America.

It should be a great match. I'll be watching it tonight on ESPN2 along with Elder Son, who some some Chelsea players earlier this week, when he was soccer camping in Dallas.
