Howdy. Just returned from the best business trip I've ever taken. I'm in healthcare sales and got to host my largest client in my company's box at Texas Stadium- 45yd line, two boxes from Jerruh and his clan. My impressions from the game, JJT-blog-style.... - The suite came with a Platinum VIP parking pass. We got waved-in so close, I thought they were going to let me park inside the stadium. Unfortunately, I was rolling in a Pontiac Vibe rental car. Five adults looked like clowns piling out of this sardine can and walking twenty feet to the Suite stairs. - Passed what was most certainly Pittdawg and "Mrs. Pittdawg" on my way into the stadium. They were sporting matching #79 jerseys (alternate, I think) with "Petitti" on the back. Too far away to introduce myself. - Each suite is decorated by the party/company that "owns" it. Ours was done-up in granite and raised-wood panelling, with three levels of black leather swivel chairs. Kinda looked like a miniature version of the Fox & Hound Pub. Money. Twleve of us (a mix of clients and salespeople) were in the box. We dined on BBQ brisket and drank...anything we wanted. Our man-servant had a 'tude and didn't know anything about football, which kinda stunk. He said Jerry Jones didn't like him. I could see why. I hadn't heard the news about us signing Cundiff and was surprised to spot him (in sweats) in pre-game warm-ups. Unfortunately, my attempts to spot Nicole Cundiff were unsuccessful... The front four feet of the suites have glass on three sides, allowing you to see either direction into the other suites. Jerry's box was littered with kids. Those same kids were the ones running around on the field immediately after the game, which is not cool. Because I want to do that... I've got to be honest, between entertaining my client, oogling the two insanely-hot women in the box next to ours and making sure my alcohol intake did not exceed that of our Sr. VP, I didn't get to watch the game as intently as I would've liked. I'm sure others have expertly disected each play by now, anyway. Just a few bird's-eye observations: *Terry Glenn is always open. Always. *Aaron Glenn earned my respect on Sunday. He was feisty when matched up with Roy and seemed to play with perfect techinque to compensate for the size difference. *We really got bailed out by Detroit's penalties. They moved the ball on us and we could not pressure Harrington with our base rush. Closer game than the score indicated.
