Although they were established in 1960 as an expansion team, it is easy to see why the nickname for the Dallas Cowboys from the NFL Film's 1978 highlight reel caught on and quickly spread throughout the football world. The film opens with the narrator intoning those immortal words in a deep, rich voice, "They appear on television so often that their faces are as familiar to the public as presidents and movie stars. They are the Dallas Cowboys, ‘America's Team.’"
Cowboys tickets have always been hard to come by as the team has racked up an all-time record of 448-332-6. A streak of 160 sold-out games (regular and postseason) included 79 straight sellouts at Texas Stadium and 81 on the road. The team won five out of their eight Super Bowl appearances, and lists seven Super Bowl Most Valuable Players on its former rosters. Owner Jerry Jones promises more to come.
The Cowboys play in the Eastern Division of the National Football Conference. They are the only NFL team that can boast of 20 consecutive winning seasons thanks to the coaching prowess of such luminaries as Tom Landry, Jimmy Johnson, Barry Switzer and Bill Parcells. Johnson and Switzer have won renown for being coaches that scored both national championships at the college level and Super Bowl victories at the professional level.
These quotable coaches have been known to utter such comments as Landry’s motivational “A winner never stops trying” or Switzer’s somewhat obvious “The key to his success? He’s just faster than the guys who are chasing him.” Never at a loss for words Jimmy Johnson once commented, “The difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra.” When faced with the challenge of turning the team around from three consecutive losing seasons, Bill Parcells muttered, “Don’t worry about it. It’s just a bunch of guys with an odd-shaped ball.”
Throughout their storied history, names like Roger Staubach, Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Daryl Johnston have almost become household words. Fans with Cowboys Stadium tickets can look up at the “Ring of Honor” and relive memories of players like Michael Irvin, Tony Dorsett, Don Meredith, Tex Schramm and Randy White.
Holders of Cowboys tickets can now enjoy the benefits of the sleek and modern Cowboys Stadium, which was completed in 2009. The largest domed stadium in the world, with its retractable roof and gigantic, center-hung TV screens, is almost as much of an attraction as the team itself. On the rare occasions when the team is not playing well, fans always have the fun of watching the beautiful and energetic Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders perform.
