Tyler Trowbridge has quite a tale to share when he makes it back to Montana.
The 21-year-old Dallas Cowboys' fan and his father, Kurt, traveled 1,660 miles from Missoula to see football in the crown jewel of all NFL stadiums.
But two hours after Sunday's game, the pair was still sprawled out in Sec. 148 of Cowboys Stadium with their eyes set on the 25,000-square-feet of high-def video boards.
Once the Cowboys had won, someone in the palace's A/V department switched over to Game 4 of the World Series, which of course was being played at Rangers Ballpark next door.
"It's pretty awesome watching baseball on the biggest TV in the world," said Tyler, sporting a No. 94 DeMarcus Ware jersey.
When the much-larger-than-life screens showed Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols foul out in the fourth inning, Kurt Trowbridge popped to his feet and playfully taunted a woman wearing a St. Louis t-shirt.
"Oh, oh, the Big Kahuna got an out!" said Kurt, waving a finger. "The Big Kahuna got out! He has no power left."
Tyler laughed at his dad's antics and reflected on the wonderful luck of their day.
"This is a pretty big deal considering where we are from," he said.
The balmy autumn afternoon in Arlington's 76011 turned out to be a double-dose of big league fun for ten of thousands of sports fans.
America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys, manhandled the St. Louis Rams, 34-7. Two blocks down the street, the Texas Rangers went up early in a must-win against St. Louis' baseball squad.
"Just to be around the atmosphere is so cool," said Malinda Flores, standing at the corner of Nolan Ryan Expressway and Randol Mill Road.
The Flores family scored last-minute tickets and drove six-and-half hours from South Texas to see the Cowboys. They didn't have baseball tickets, but like dozens of others, they couldn't pass up the opportunity to be within earshot of the Fall Classic.
In their Dallas jerseys, many snapped photos standing in front of a big World Series banner. Then, with every ooh and ah coming from inside, they checked the box score on their phones.
Outside the first-base gate entrance, a group of college-age men bearing jerseys with the names of Cowboys past and present tried to barter with a ticket scalper. He wanted $200 in the fifth inning. They balked, but offered their last cans of Bud Light.
"We're from Canada, so we gotta try," one of them said.
But others, like the men from Missoula, were thrilled to watch on the giant screen.
Or even the less-giant screen. In a parking lot, a Hamilton-homer away from the centerfield wall, a pimped-out motor coach showed the game on a 42-inch flat screen fixed to the side of the bus.
A group of limo drivers in slacks and starched shirts were still on the clock, but they gathered 'round to see Mike Napoli's three-run shot to tie the World Series at two games each.
It was a made-for-TV moment.
