Got a buddy who is Cowboys' season-ticket holder. One of the privileges is getting first dibs at all the events - not just NFL games - at the sparking, billion-dollar joint.

Tries the same trick for last Saturday's Texas A&M-Arkansas game in Arlington. Cost him $1,200, and he sells them for ...
Arkansas 47, A&M 19 didn't draw quite the attention or the crowd as the first college game in Cowboys Stadium.
"Aggies are not only losers," my buddy fumed to me yesterday, "they're cheap!"
