Dallas pizzeria raises price for NFC rival fans
SEP 06, 2012 9:07p ET
Extreme Pizza in North Dallas frequently offers specials on Cowboys gamedays. Wednesday night's season opener against the Giants was no different. Well, unless you're a Giants fan.
The pizzeria posted two signs in front of their location on Luther Lane, one that offered Cowboys fans a jumbo slice of pizza and a fountain drink for $3.50 and the other advertising the same combo for Giants and Redskins fans at the price of $863.49.
Assistant manager Chris Donnell confirmed that no customers said they were Giants fans Wednesday night. One patron jokingly said he was a Redskins fan when the sign had been posted in the past.
"He wasn't really a Redskins fan," Donnell said. "You kind of got to be crazy to be a Redskins fan in Dallas, or very brave."
Or very wealthy if you plan on eating pizza.
Extreme Pizza general manager Bill Shaw came up with the idea and the company is already planning something for the Cowboys' game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 16.
