Here are a few highlights from Monday's episode featuring Rick Gosselin and Corbett Smith:
On Allen’s new $60 million stadium:
Smith: “People in Allen have been waiting for this for a long time. The lines used to be so long to get regular game tickets. Once they sold out their preseason allotment, there was very little turnover with those tickets. Band families and parents had to sit in the end zones to watch their kids perform so people are really excited about this. There is a lot of excitement in that town.”
Gosselin: “I’m anxious to see the place. I’ve been to a lot of small college stadiums and nothing compares to this. It fits in with the great facilities we have in Dallas with the Cowboys and the Stars. I just want to see it. I want to see the stadium because it’s as good as any in the country.”
