Cardinals' field rolled out at the University of Phoenix Stadium Thursday (VIDEO)

At the University of Phoenix Stadium, the Cardinals' grass field was literally rolled out Thursday, a process that takes around 90 minutes.

Some other statistics about the 1.7 million square foot stadium...

If the concrete used to build the stadium were made into a sidewalk, it would stretch 900 miles, roughly the distance from Phoenix to San Francisco.

If you had to walk that distance to watch a football game, those uncomfortable stadium seats wouldn't sound too bad.

The bleachers contain 63,400 seats which can be expanded to 73,000 for Super Bowls or college Bowl Games.

Despite this, there are only 14,000 on-site parking spots and 73 restrooms.

No A/C this summer? The air conditioning at the stadium could accommodate 2,300 Valley homes.
