Ultimate Cowboys Fan

Posted by    |    September 19th, 2012 at 10:01 am

I like to think of myself as a Cowboys fan. I go to as many games as I can – even if the tickets are crazy at the Death Star – but I do not think I have or will ever be at @JohnShango ‘s level. I first heard this when I was listening to 1310 The Ticket (I am a P1) on my way home from work. Then I received an email from my friend showing me the link (Dallas), then my step-sister (New York), then my brother (Nashville). Video has gone viral.


Orange Juice and Mayonnaise

The long awaited free agency summer of 2012 started with a bang. But not the traditional bang, more like a shot straight to the junk. But as Kelly Clarkson told me on Saturday Night Live, ‘what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,’ the swings and misses from the Dallas Mavericks on Deron Williams, Jason Terry and Jason Kidd did not kill the team or the front office in charge of its very contstruction. (Fans and EVERYONE at ESPN 103.3 FM Radio are another story)

The fallout from the unfortunate events in week one of this year’s free agency was quite dramatic locally. The Monday’s after Cowboys games are referred to as “Overreaction Mondays,” when Tony Romo is either finally turning a corner or being threatened by call-in listeners.


On The Runway…Out Of Town

For the last eight seasons, Jason Eugene Terry has called Dallas home and the Mavericks his team. For the last eight seasons #31 jerseys have filled the local setting and the sound of a plane taking off – or a jet – became as iconic of a noise in the city of Dallas as, well, Dallas.

Over a dozen headbands and wristbands fill my desk drawer, all game worn and none ever, ever washed or even rinsed with the smallest amount of soap or water, despite my mother’s best efforts.
