Dallas' new city edition game court design. I've never seen the Dallas skyline before so I'm a bit confused by what I see here. I see the St Louis Gateway Arch and the Knoxville giant disco ball depicted on this court.

I see a McDonald's and a rest stop service plaza from the Florida Turnpike of my youth.

Maybe not in person, but next time you watch RoboCop you can see the Detroit PD chase baddies around the outskirts of early 80s downtown Dallas. IIRC Reunion Tower (the big skyball) makes several appearances, as does the I.M. Pei-designed Dallas City Hall.

I left Dallas before the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge over the Trinity Sewer River was completed and don't really know much about it, but if you want a sports tie-in she was Lamar Hunt's sister.
