Bomb Scare at Super Bowl Stadium in Texas

1/28/2011 11:01 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: The FBI tells us it turned out to just be a "false alarm." Turns out it was just trash.

The SWAT team has responded to Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Texas -- where the Super Bowl will be played next weekend -- after officials received reports of a suspicious package in the area.

According to FOX 4 News in Dallas, officials shut down some of the roads in the area ... and a member of the bomb squad was seen peering down a manhole during the sweep.

So far, no one has been evacuated from the stadium.

And yet, the bomb defuser guy still has a better chance of seeing 2012 than Charlie Sheen.

why are we quoting a comedy channel for the "news" ~ fox news is a joke, Glenn Beck and Bill O'reilly are nazi(s), but we get the most trusted news from Jon Stewart.

Soooo tired of the SB hype here in Dallas...it cannot end soon enough. This is the third "security scare" we have seen reported in a week. First was the 2 suspicious pieces of mail to Sen. Cornyn's office (not SB related but still caused a media commotion), 2nd was the "really just a Fed Ex package full of paper files" in the downtown highrise (20 police cars, ambulance, bomb squad, evacuations), and now this. And we still have a week left.
Then we have Arlington, TX whining that the national media keeps refering to the SB as going to be in DALLAS even though the Cowboy stadium is in Arlington. Which is making the rest of the DFW area residents tell the whiners to shut up, Dallas is all that matters to out of towners...which then makes the Ft Worth people chime in that THEY will get the out of towners who want a more blue collar, laid back/Western experience and that ESPN even wanted to be broadcast from Ft Worth. So Dallasites thumb their collective noses at THAT and say this is where the REAL parties will be and out of towners will only come here to Dallas.
And we have already seen the help wanted ad that the local strips joints have had out (article here on TMZ).
If I could leave town that weekend, I would be outta here. Instead I will do the next best thing..lock myself in my apartment with what will no doubt be the best free seat for the SB..my couch and my 50 inch screen flat screen.

i actually live nearby and I think they are treating trash like bombs right now. We've all gotten our threaten letters from every imaginable city resource telling the residents to clean up their yards, follow the rule, don't leave trash out on non-trash days, be nice and friendly all the time or else! They're putting out commercials and flyers and billboards, you name it- all in an effort to clean up our area for company. Well, it's cool. Just like when we were all kids- we just swept it all under the bed till ya'll go home. I wished I'd thought of this sooner but we should all be nice to the visitors, but we should also be really wierd. Like be all nice and sweet but anytime you engage a visitor or give them directions or share the bar or wahtever, hug them like they're your grandam and grab their ass. I think that's be a fun set of details to send folks back to Green Bay and Philly with!

Well rainbow4321, there is a valid reason we "whine" about uninformed people not realizing the COWBOYS stadium is in Arlington. The taxpayers of Arlington stepped up when nobody else would! Right or wrong, we made it possible for this state of the art stadium to be built, therefore we don't feel like it's asking too much for a little credit from the media.

Well JD and Rainbow since you live in or near Arlington you know what a nightmare it is to get in and out of the Parks Mall on Saturday and what Arlington traffic can be like. I'm with you and staying off the 20. First it was the story of the stolen computers that might contain security information about SB. I will be glad when this is over and staying home to watch SB on TV where normally we would go to a SB party.

Who Gives A Rat's A*s    

No one cares about Ft. Worth or Arlington! Maybe the Arlington taxpayers should rally together get with Jerry Jones and change the name of the team to the Arlington Cowboys!!
