What's In My Closet? Horrible Ideas Edition

Was just over on Unfair Park reading Schutze's take on the latest missle fired into the hull of the Trinity River Toll Road Waste Of Time Project.

Got me to thinking. And scrounging.

What are some of the other worst ideas in Dallas history? Particularly, ya know, pertaining to sports.

Lookie what I found ...
