The Cotton Bowl Parade Returns. Not Exactly.

AT&T officials want you to know this WFAA-Channel 8 story from Friday is right. And very wrong. I got an e-mail this a.m. from Natasha Seeley at AT&T announcing a press conference tomorrow morning at the Dallas Museum of Art, during which Mayor Laura and the Kilgore College Rangerettes will provide details concerning the AT&T New Year's Parade scheduled to take place the afternoon of December 31. But do not call it the Cotton Bowl Parade. Ever. See here:

"(Please Note: References to a 'Cotton Bowl Parade' are inaccurate, as the event is neither funded nor produced by the Cotton Bowl Athletic Association. Thank you.)"

And the Cotton Bowl gets yet one more kick in the bowls. --Robert Wilonsky
