Looks like the world’s most expensive high school football stadium won’t be the world’s most expensive anymore, or even the most expensive in the Dallas area, after voters in McKinney approved a $220 million bond measure that includes $63 million for a 12,000-seat high school football stadium.
Superintendent Rick McDaniel let out a sigh of relief as the vote “for” results rolled in.
“We’re visionaries,” he said of district leaders. “And we believe we have a vision for McKinney ISD that will propel us forward for a long time.”
Me, I’m not so sure I’d be willing to bet that high school football will still be a thing for “a long time,” but this is Texas, so maybe football will still be a popular regional sport there long after it’s banned everywhere else. (I mean, it’s Texas, so of course it will.) At least hopefully this one won’t have to be shut down for a year and a half after it develops giant cracks, because that’s so 2014.
