Football stadiums like the one the Dallas Cowboys play in are pretty big, but are they so big that they could possibly use more energy than an entire country?

Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf says yes.

Recently the leader of the West African nation claimed that AT&T Stadium uses more electricity than her country of approximately 4 million people. 

Sound crazy? 

Liberia is not a real developed nation, just like many other countries in sub-Saharan Africa. It is not unusual to find people living without electricity at all. Many small businesses will spend over half of their operating budget on electricity alone. 

So there may be something to what she says. According to a Wall Street Journal article the home of the Cowboys uses about 10 megawatts of electricity on game day; her country—about a third of that.

That's just for a hand full of days, but if you factor in the other events that the stadium hosts it sounds like its true!
