It was a long, hot night at Texas Stadium on Saturday night. We got to the stadium a couple of hours before the game. We paid $20 to park about a mile or two away. It was very hot and sticky. We got into the stadium and found our seats. There's only one thing I can say about Texas Stadium. It's a dump! The seats are so close together. I have bruises on both hips from them being smashed into the seats. There is no ventilation in there, either. It's about 3/4 of a dome and all of the heat stays in the stadium.
The game was also not that good, either. The Broncos got beat 31-20. It was funny sitting near some of the Cowboys fans. You would think that they were winning a Super Bowl as serious as they were taking it. It was pretty funny. I can honestly say that the Cowboys fans were pretty nice and not near as obnoxious as those Chiefs fans.
After the game we went to the place where the Broncos get on the bus. Austin bought a football that he wanted to get signed. The late Darrent Williams was from the Dallas-Fort Worth area and has family and kids down here. They were at the game and it was neat to see the players spend some time with them. Darrent was killed after the Broncos final game of the 2006 season. He was in a limo and shot to death. Javon Walker was in the limo with him. Javon spent a lot of time with Darrent's family after the game, then he came over and signed autographs. He was very nice. Austin was also able to get Tony Scheffler, Steve Cargile and Brian Clark's autograph. Chris got Matt Lepsis' autograph. That was cool. Austin asked Champ Bailey for his autograph, but he was playing stupid and got into a limo. The rest of the guys got onto the bus. This is the second time that I have seen Champ in an autograph situation and he was been an ass to the fans. That was disappointing.
Overall it was a good time.
