(Newser) – Cowboys season-ticket holders have a special seating option for watching the Super Bowl, the Star-Telegram reports: For the low, low price of $200, they can watch the game on a TV screen while standing outside the stadium. The Cowboys won't be in the Super Bowl, of course, but Dallas is hosting this year's game, and owner Jerry Jones apparently wants to break the all-time attendance record. To do so, he'll need to sell about 12,000 "party plaza" tickets and add those to the 93,000 sold for inside the stadium. An NFL spokesman says the plan is legit.
