Some love Cowboys Stadium, or Jerryworld as I love to call it. Others loathe it.
Well, after seeing tweets like this, I have a feeling many more will begin to side with the latter after tomorrow's Gold Cup semifinals matches between the United States and Honduras followed up by Mexico playing Panama.

A view from the corner flag will make for sun set pieces.
More exciting pics of grass. Note the green-colored sand as filler just inside of the corner semi-circle. pic.twitter.com/oIpgRx4Ayu— Matt Barbour (@matt_barbour) July 23, 2013
And then there is this...green sand? This is used to fill in the gaps on the field. Yikes.

Like most NFL venues, it normally houses the fake stuff for a field. For this tournament they brought in some real grass but after seeing these images, they should have hosted another game first to get some of the iffy-ness out of it. The new grass was laid down this past weekend.
Oh, and there's a rumor that supporters won't be allowed to bring banners or drums to the matches. That is going to go over well with the El Tri faithful. At least they've banned vuvuzelas from this event.
