4 of 10 gates closed at Cowboys Stadium

DALLAS -- Traffic is a touch nasty in Arlington (unless you're one of the media members amid the police escort that fans erroneously stare at anyway) because of the Super Bowl. And thanks to the dangerous weather and ice that took over Cowboys Stadium this week, things will get worse, because four of the 10 gates leading into the stadium are closed.

That's according to the Associated Press, and confirmed by NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy, who notes (via WFAA) that the league is working with Arlington Fire Department to "safely direct fans into the building."

If you're headed to Gates B, D, G or J, make a break for another one of the six entrances, because those spots are all shut down at the moment, and the lines are only getting longer as fans pile up waiting and then trying to get into the stadium.

At the moment, things are fairly calm inside the stadium -- outside though, things are pretty hectic, with a slew of Arlington residents tailgaiting and an unbelievable amount of jersey-clad Steelers and Packers fans streaming through the streets.
