The next morning, we got up, got on the bus, went to the stadium where a huge tailgate meal was waiting for us and alumni players were hanging out. We walked across the parking lot into the stadium and took our seats for the game. After the game, we went back to the bus line and rode back to our hotel. For us, it was just nice to not have to deal with parking, driving, or tailgating ourselves. We could just show up where we were supposed to be and not worry about the details.
I second this. The fact that you get greater access to the players and have a lot of the leg work taken out of it for you is quite nice. And there is only one official travel partner for the Cowboys games so it makes it even better knowing that you get extra added access. With Star Sports you can get a package that will get you access to Valley Ranch.
