MAIN ATTRACTION: In Dallas, David Flick notes based on the large number of fans who turned out yesterday to tour the new Cowboys Stadium for $15 per ticket, the new venue has been "added to the area's list of top attractions." Fan Mario Garcia: "It's crazy, the amount of people who are here. And they haven't even played a game yet." Cowboys VP/Marketing Bill Priakos said the large number of visitors "certainly exceeded our expectations." Priakos: "There are a lot of people just out to see the stadium. A lot of them aren't Cowboys fans, but they're there because they've heard of the structure." Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck last week cited the stadium tours as "one reason for better-than-expected tax revenues" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 7/13).
