No Hot Water? Seriously?

    This is just ridiculous... I smell conspiracy :p

    Home locker room short on hot water

    By Todd Archer

    IRVING, Texas -- Win or lose, the Green Bay Packers won't have to worry about being in hot water after Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium.
    That's because, according to several Dallas Cowboys players, the home locker room hasn't had much hot water for postgame showers.
    "You get a little chilly when you get out of there," Cowboys Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten said Thursday.


    As the home team for Super Bowl XLV, that's the locker room where the Packers will be setting up camp.
    Several Packers players were taken aback by the news. Linebacker A.J. Hawk asked his former Ohio State teammate Bobby Carpenter about the stadium and the former Cowboy did not mention the lack of hot water.
    "Wow, that puts a damper on the day," Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga said. "Cold water? I'm just saying, how much did that stadium cost: $1.2 billion? Get a hot water tank. It should be the size of a room.
    "Let's worry about that after the game."
    Cowboys players Jay Ratliff and Miles Austin also said the water can be too cold.
    "With the season we had, I'd have turned off the hot water, too," Ratliff said, referring to the Cowboys' disappointing 6-10 campaign.
    Witten admitted he didn't remember the water being so cold in 2009 when the Cowboys went 11-5, won the NFC East and a wild-card playoff game in the first year of the stadium.
    Considering the cost of the stadium, wouldn't somebody say something to owner and general manager Jerry Jones?
    "Heck no, you don't say anything to Jerry," Witten said. "Win some more games, then maybe."

    Maybe it's just me, but I think the Dallas organization is a tad jealous.

    I don't think there's a doubt in anyone's mind they are, haha. Jerry Jones may have stomach ulcers after the week is through.

    I wouldn't be surprised. Why was media day freezing btw? Are there no heaters for the main stadium? I guess I can see the Stadium not having them. Or did Jerry just figure, why should I spend the money to heat the place for one day of media interviews.

    A lot of journalists are complaining how cold all the event sites are. Where's the heat Dallas? Dallas is NOT making the media really happy here and none have had good things to say about the experience so far as I can tell.

    Well no wonder why Jerry Jones is so rich.
    He's miserly, even to his own players.

    I call out: Honey! We're gonna be rich! Cold showers from now on!

    No doubt they are. Not a huge secret when the new place was built old Jerry did so with the grand plan that his boys would be playing in the first Super Bowl there.

    That being said, the NFL controls basically everything when it comes down the venue for the Super Bowl and I would expect the problem will be fixed quickly.

    Jerry did have a snide statement when asked if he was angry at the Steelers or Packers. To paraphrase.

    "No, I'm not angry at the Steelers as some might think I should be. I mean, we beat them in SB XXXIII (or whatever it was)." Kind of a slap at the Steelers.

    When I saw the thread title I thought is was more personal since our water heater here at home went out last night.
    It was due to the recent blizzard.
    It's working again now though.

    Shall I ship some of our hot water to the Packers?
    I'm sure the cardboard box will hold it just fine.

    Probably not, little, but it's just the hypocrisy and patheticness of it all.

    Your my stalker?
    Kewl.
    I feel so famous.

    Hey, your screen name.
    If the shoe fits, wear it.

    And by "personal" I thought you meant your water.
    But since your in touch with our electric company, have them lower our bills. 'K?
    Thanx.

    It was an easy decision for Jerry Jones. World's biggest score board or hot water.

    Like anyone here would have made a different choice between the two.

    I suspect there is no real problem here. It sounds like an excuse.

    Cowboy player walking naked out of shower to reporter, (stammering with embarrassed expression) "ummm, you see, its the showers. Yeah, thats it. We were out of hot water and it was cold in there. You know about frightened turtles, right?"

    Do they call it "Pulling a Favre" in Dallas, or does it go by something else there? Just curious...

    Must have a lot to compensate for, err, a very little to, umm...

    You're probably right.

    Texas is having to get electricity from Mexico now. 280MW to be exact. Yes, you heard that right. Texas is getting electricity from Mexcio now to make up the shortfall!

    Take that back. Mexico has rescinded the offer.

    Well, you ever see the televised Dallas games, and they show his daughter who looks exactly like him? I think the only difference between her and her dad is that she has longer hair, and breasts. :happy0005:
