Football: Cowboys and Cardinals

 Today I accompanied my son and husband to watch two football practices – the Dallas Cowboys and the University of Incarnate Word (UIW) Cardinals

The Cowboys are practicing in the Alamodome through August 19th.  Today we watched a controlled scrimmage.  Admission is free; parking is $10.  The scrimmage lacked excitement but the air conditioning was nice.

UIW is kicking off the school’s first football season in Benson Stadium.  Open practices will be held daily until August 21st on the football field.  We watched the players doing fundamental drills by position.   The new field is beautiful and my son enjoyed watching the different positions practice.  It was hot but we found some shade in the bleachers under the press box.
