High School Football Stadium of the Day: Eagle Stadium, in Allen, TX, a Dallas suburb, opens later this month after three years of construction, and tongues are wagging at its $60 million price tag.
The state-of-the-art facility boasts 18,000 seats (all bleachers), two luxury suites, a pro-quality press box, and a 3,400-square-foot HD video scoreboard. The project was funded by a $119 million bond package approved by 63 percent of voters three years ago.
“It shows that the people of Allen support their kids,” said Allen head football coach Tom Westerberg.
Meanwhile, by the 2011-2012 school year, the Allen school district was facing a $4.5 million budget shortfall and was forced to cut 44 teaching positions and 40 support positions.
Luckily for Allen football fans, the school’s operating budget was separate from construction; voters eventually agreed to increase property tax rates by $0.13 to offset state education cuts.

“It shows that the people of Allen support their kids,” said Allen head football coach Tom Westerberg.
REALLY? “The people of Allen support their kids”? That’s bullshit. The people of Allen support their boys that play football on a high school level.
Fuck Allen, Texas. Fuck it hard. I hate that fucking place, and I hate that I have to see Hall & Oates there.
Because I love Hall & Oates, and I don’t want to go to Allen to see them.

reason no. 58 why I will not be moving back to the dallas area and why i moved away in the first place.

Luxury boxes?  For a public high school football team?  No wonder the rest of the world hates us.

$60M? Ummm, Education? Science programs? Arts & Humanities? Overseas Programs? Wait, this is Yee-haw country… Ok, Business Programs? LEARNING?…… Kno wat? Never mind. You’ll figure it out after Rick Perry’s served his 8th term, proposes cessation, declares himself Emperor, & your kids are, like, ‘Oh, OK’.

Varsity Blues, come to life, only minus James Van Der Beek drawling/yelling at his father, “I don’t want yer life!”
