Wanna Win Free Super Bowl XLV Tickets? I Know Where You Get 'Em
Come February, your Dallas Cowboys may be the first team to play in a Super Bowl in its own stadium. Just by being a football fan with a computer and an opinion, you could join them.
The ramp-up to Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington continues as the Host Committee has launched its Century in the Making web site and is now accepting votes on the greatest football plays in the history of North Texas. Voting will be open through September, when the Top 100 plays will begin to be revealed leading up to the big game.
Currently with open voting for best high-school moment, you simply go here, cast your ballot and you're entered for a drawing that could land you travel and tickets to XLV.
That's the easy part. The hard part?
Choosing the best all-time high-school moment. My vote:
Nov. 26, 1994: In one of the wildest high school games ever played, John Tyler somehow survives Plano East, 48-44, in a Regional Semifinal at Texas Stadium. Plano East trails 41-17 before taking a 44-41 lead in the final 30 seconds, only to have John Tyler return a kickoff for a touchdown as time expires. The teams combine for 51 points in the fourth quarter, including 28 in the final 1:58.
