IRVING, Texas -- The undisputed star of Texas Stadium has left the field.

Crews on Friday rolled up the star section of blue artificial turf, about 30 feet by 30 feet, as part of plans to remove and sell items from the former home of the Dallas Cowboys.

John Linville of Hellas Construction says the company laid the latest artificial field in 2002, including the more than 1-ton section of the star.

The star graced the 50-yard line at Texas Stadium, which hosted its final Cowboys game on Dec. 20, a 33-24 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Cowboys this year will inaugurate their $1.2 billion retractable-roof stadium in Arlington.

An online auction was held to sell items, such as an American flag hanging in the stadium that went for $850. A Cowboys helmet golf cart sold for $12,500.

Some fans on Friday picked up items they had purchased.

Bob Dole is going to a charity auction in a little bit where they have some Cowboys stuff. Bob Dole's plan is to find the one that people are bidding on, outbid them, then set it on fire. Should be big fun.

Checkout the article from today's Dallas Morning News. It says that the Cowboys HAVE NOT decided what to do with the Star. The OP lists several items that are being sold, but the Star is not listed.

The Cowboys are selling one of the end zones in the NM Christmas Catalog.

It would be one hell of a man cave.

30 X 30.

On second thought, you are correct. Maybe it would be good as a backyard. Like the Brady Bunch. ?
