Who Owns Those Boxes Anyway?

In case it does get cold this winter, the best place to watch Cowboy home games is from, of course, a Texas Stadium suite. The comfort of an enclosed suite, complete with bar and television, assures one of enjoying the game much more than the poor people sitting outside in the $10 seat

Finding a way into a stadium suite on a given Sunday isn’t the easiest thing to do. It requires knowing somebody who owns one, and then finagling an invitation. Naturally the closer your suite is to the 50-yard line, the better the view will be. If you want to go for broke and try to wangle an invitation to a really first class location, here are a few prospects, owners of the best located suites in Texas Stadium.

On the lower level (which is preferable): John Murchison, Texas Bank & Trust, American Liberty Oil, Mrs. Donald Carter and Tyler Corporation. On the other side, Clint Murchison Jr., Sanders Campbell, Max L. Thomas, Estill Heyser Jr., Herman Lay and the Southland Corporation (7-Eleven

On the upper level: Jack Young-blood, Charles Rush, Bankston Lincoln Mercury, Tom Landry (he won’t be there), Travis Ward and General Portland. On the other side, Amon Carter Jr., Dresser Industries, Southland Corporation (in case you can’t get into their lower level suite), Texas Stadium Corporation, Tex Schramm, Stadium Associates and First National Bank.

These are definitely the prime locations. If, however, you’d be willing to take second best, here are other owners of $50,000 Texas Stadium suites. These are still preferable to sitting out there in the $10 seat.
