On Wednesday, Dallas welcomed some 1,500 children from all over the world who've lost a parent serving in the U.S. armed forces since 2001; two days later, on ABC World News, Charlie Gibson devoted the final few minutes of the broadcast to the Dallas-based Snowball Express. Worth a look-see.
Speaking of, after the jump you'll find some of the Saturday festivities out at Cowboys Stadium, which included a local-celebs meet-and-greet, a game of pick-up football on the EnormoDome field, and Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band entertaining the Snowball'ers with, ahem, the opening theme to CSI: NY.
