â†µThe Cowboys are also America's team, because they made the seats in their new stadium for fat people. â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥ All the seats at the new stadium are between 19 and 20½ inches wide compared to the 17- and 18-inch wide seats at Texas Stadium. â†µâ†µMock them if you like, but the plain facts are inescapable and weighty: your butt is substantially bigger than the hindparts of your forebears, and if you want demonstrable proof, try going to Wrigley Field or to Notre Dame and squeezing yourself into a seat. It's an exercise in embarrassment even for the svelte among us, since as a whole Americans at this moment are fatter than we've ever been. You might as well make your stadium to fit rather than attempting to enforce virtue through architecture. Now, if we could just bring back the wearing of pants pulled up to your sternum, we could dispense with this whole notion of "not being horrifically obese" altogether, and head down to our spacious NFL stadiums wearing zoot suits and driving golf carts in lieu of pesky, tiring walking.
