Mammoth 80,000-plus Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas -- nicknamed for the Star Wars lunar-sized space weapon -- became AT&T Stadium in late July after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones struck a naming-rights deal, estimated between $17 million and $19 million per year with the communications giant. It is the second big-league venue for AT&T, which also has its name on the San Francisco Giants' ballpark.

And speaking of Giants, New York's are 4-0 in Jones' stadium since it opened in 2009.
