NFC West: Mark Messier

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.

Gary Belsky's piece for ESPN The Magazine places Kurt Warner in rare company with Mark Messier as a Two-Town Sports God.

It's a fun read unless you've overdosed on Warner stuff for one day.
