    show up every year. Its quite fun.

    With the number of games we attend, I try to keep costs down.... a room at the Gaylord is quite pricey. Ive also been to so many games that I stay away from all the places that book you game day experiences. We have friends that we tailgate with at every game we go to. People from all over the states and even Canada show up. Its quite fun.

    Wife worked in Nashville for a few months. I made it out for a weekend and that place was great fun..... I wasnt there for a game, but agree, a game in Nashville would be great. We even contemplated going for the draft. That would have been miserable though. Did you see the number of people that went to the draft in Nashville?

    We use Cowboys games as an excuse to travel to new cities. It is our vacations wrapped around an nfl weekend. Nothing better for me:)

    I'm going to ask a dumb question. How do you know which weekend the opener is on since the schedule has not come out? What if they open on the road?

    I booked flights using points on southwest for week 1 and week 2 into Dallas. Using Southwest allows me to cancel the weekend I dont need and I get all my points back. So Ive covered week 1 and 2, assuming the dont open on the road for weeks 1 and 2, which is highly unlikely.

    Oh, if they happen to open on Monday night, Ill have to rebook.

    It’s nice it’s a family tradition. I see the Cowboys every time they come to New England. I used to travel to New York to Watch . It’s hard to find someone to go with

    I know how far it is... prices on flights go up and down. I got it for about 9500 points. It could drop as low as 7500 points. Now I watch and see what happens. If prices do not drop, then I got the best price available. IM cheap, so I can do as many as possible. Waiting the way Southwest does it with points makes no sense.

    This is a genius way to approach this! I am a new season ticket holder and will be going to opening weekend every tear now, ALWAYS at Thanksgiving. It’s a tradition! I live in Colorado, so I will be going to KC this year as well. Also, I am a SW Credit card holder and fly them everywhere possible. We have a few hundred thousand miles waiting for the season! Got my wife a SW cc for an amazing deal of 80,000 to sign up.

    The more games we go to, the better I get at doing things in a way that is really convenient and saves us money. The hotel is the best one. That hotel is right across from the stadium and about 100 yards from the parking lot we tailgate at. Sometimes is faster to walk to my room to use the restroom than waiting for the port-a-potty in the parking lot.

    Enjoy it with your family man. Here is a little twist for you. I am a Giants fan, I have 2 sons. Older one is a Cowboys fan the other is a Giants fan.

    I ended up flying to Dallas twice and take my son to Cowboys game as a Giants fan.

    Spending money for Cowboys when you are a Cowboys fan is easy. Come do it when you are a Giants fan :)

    Hopefully there is still time to change you other son from going to the Dark side. I have faith you can change him.

    Some Cowboys fans think you aren’t a real fan if you line Jerry’s pockets. Anything less than a boycott and you are a traitor.
