Good for them. (Maybe in their negotiations they could have leveraged Jerry stepping down and NomoRomo getting traded to AAA ball or something for a player to be named later.) I won’t go into my typical Cowboys issues.
No, I just wish that before AT&T spends a lot of money on the dome in Arlington, they’d fix this eyesore at 500 Cartwright Road in Mesquite/Balch Springs, TX that’s been there for more than a month now.
You see, AT&T had the wisdom to put their telephone, cable and DSL box at the intersection of 500 W. Cartwright and too many Mesquite drivers think that Cartwright is something of a race strip. (Thankfully, Mesquite PD has started, well, they had started, running radar thru the area back in June, but it’s been a while now since I’ve seen a car out there.)
I’ve been here for more than three years now and the telephone box in question has been hit at least three times. One time a car hit the telephone pole at least 15 feet in the air. I think Bruce Willis must have been driving. There was a fence to the right of the phone box and it’s been taken out so many times by cars veering off the road at high speeds that the owners replaced the fence in April with pine trees….
But on June 22, 2013, the latest no doubt drunken driver exceeding the 40 mph speed limit came flying thru and effectively took out the AT&T box. Somehow, we still have service. But instead of just putting up a new box, I’m assuming they’re having a new one built, AT&T has let this eyesore of a blue tent, fashioned not too unlike the dome in Arlington, to just sit there.
A month and three days later, it’s still there.

It has looked like this for a month now…..
