Home to the Texas State Fair, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, and more professional sports teams than you can shake a hockey stick at, Dallas—not just Dallas itself, but the whole Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex—has something to offer for everyone.

OMG Sports!

October is prime season for football, baseball (well, the playoffs, at least), basketball, hockey, soccer (the real football!). No matter which team you root for or which sport you enjoy the most, you're sure to find a game or match to cheer or jeer at!
