The new Dallas Cowboys Stadium will offer $90 pizzas

By Chris Chase

The colossal new Dallas Cowboys Stadium is living proof that everything is bigger in Texas. The menu in the luxury suites proves that things there are more expensive too.

Those enjoying a Cowboys game from a luxury suite at the new stadium will have to shell out $90 for pizza and $66 for a 12-pack of domestic beer, reports Steven Sipple of the Lincoln Journal World. Ninety bucks for pizza? That's almost as much of a rip-off as Roy Williams.

It costs $800,000 per year to lease one of those luxury suites, a hefty sum that doesn't include game tickets. On the bright side, the stadium's official Web site says that "having your company's name on a suite makes an important statement about your success" and can help make an impression on clients. (Namely that they're paying you way too much money.)

As for the $90 pizza, that's the cost for a plain pizza. No word on how much each topping costs but, suffice it to say, if you're a fan of pepperoni you may want to consider refinancing your mortgage before you head down to watch the Cowboys.

Thanks, The Sporting Blog

Just another reason why all the rich people need more tax cuts.

And they say the oil companies haven't been making such big profits since the price of gasoline went up.

Maybe they're subsidizing their former oil profits by getting into the pizza business.
Let them eat pizza.

To set an NFL attendance record at the new stadium, Jerry Jones plans to sell $29 seats to fans who will watch the game without seats, that is, while standing: http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601079&sid=aqtlnqwjSsP8.
