By now we know that the Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Green Bay Packers in Superbowl XLV.  While most people know the game will be played in Cowboys Stadium, fewer realize that Cowboys Stadium is in Arlington, Texas –not Dallas.  Moreover, for the entire week leading up to the Superbowl, ESPN has relocated its headquarters and broadcasts to downtown Fort Worth, Texas.

What does this have to do with Texas employment law?  I’m not sure it has anything to do employment law but since my beloved Cowboys aren’t making an appearance as the first team to ever play a Super Bowl in their home stadium, I have to find some angle to be interested in the game.  As ESPN sets up its studios for broadcasts beginning this weekend, I’ll try to find an employment law connections related to the hosting of the Super Bowl.  If my posts in the next two weeks are infrequent, its because I’m in the parking lot next door watching ESPN’s Mike and Mike in the Morning show.
