Going, Going...Gone?

Today did not dawn pretty for you traditionalists. That is, if there are any of you left. First, Fort Worth's tradition-saturated Colonial golf tournament has sold out and partnered with something called the Crowne Plaza Hotels and Resort, rendering the grand ol' golfing get-together as faceless and bland as any Buick Open or IHOP Invite. Ben Hogan must be so proud.

Even worse, the Cotton Bowl might be leaving, um, the Cotton Bowl. Officials for the 76-year-old game have hired a consulting firm to study the feasibility of moving the Dallas icon to the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium in Arlington as soon as January 1, 2010. This is big, bad news for Fair Park and the city of Dallas, which is, as we speak, commencing a major facelift to the old stadium in hopes of keeping the annual Texas-OU game in Dallas past 2010. By 2011 Dallas may have those long-awaited flying cars, but not one drop of football. --Richie Whitt
