Mark Messier and a Texas Catfish Po Boy
By Mike Sando
ARLINGTON, Texas -- It's not everywhere you can order the "Texas Catfish Po' Boy" while NHL legend Mark Messier strolls past.
Cowboys Stadium is brimming with fans and the famous as game time approaches. I was standing at the counter for a concession stand when Messier passed through.
Back in the media work room, a certain NFC West receiver's reporter father, Larry Fitzgerald Sr., recently made an appearance.
Earlier, the view from one of the second-level concourses showed Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on the sideline with actress Jennifer Aniston.
The Po' Boy wasn't bad, but the salt-and-peppered fries were much better. I chatted with some fans from Texas who were confident Jones would be able to secure another Super Bowl for Dallas despite a week marked by freezing temperatures, snow and falling ice at the stadium.
I would tend to agree. This stadium is unlike anything anywhere.
