Default Jerry World question ( ATT Stadium )

Going to the cotton bowl this year. Never have been to the stadium.
I hate sitting down for that long and sitting in those small chairs and hard on my back.
I know the screen is huge and you can see it from anywhere, but is it a stadium you can walk around and watch from the concourse at different locations or do you a seat to truly watch the game.

I've been there many times, but only for high school playoff games (Highland Park is in the State Semifinals this Friday at 9:00). I would opt for the seats simply because what we have found ourselves sitting in were most comfortable, even for rather large buttocks like mine. We are usually right on the field at ~ the 40-45 yd line and it can be tough getting a good view of plays in the red zone. Then you have to look up and that can be kind of straining, although you really get a good view of the play from the screens. If I were you, I would have no problem getting a seat, unless you don't want to spend the extra $$.

Well unless I can find reasonable tickets I was thinking of getting 400 level prices and just walking around the lower level concourse, usually near a beer station...

That works too. You really won't miss a thing watching those screens, and there are plenty of beer stations. I've just never seen them opened for high school games.
