While in Dallas this weekend, I got to catch the Cowboys-Redskins game.  I know that this is the last year for the Cowgirls Cowboys at Texas Stadium.  All I can say is, it’s about time.  That place is a dump.  Compared to Reliant stadium in Houston, Texas Stadium is ridiculously outdated. So maybe a future Dallas home game will be more impressive.

I know that Jerry Jones and the media love to tout the Cowboys as America’s team.  While most of America would dispute that, I do know of one country that is all theirs.  That would be our neighbor in the south, Mexico.  I saw a ton of Spanish signs like “Viva los Cowboys”, and “Cowboys Numero Uno!”.  Now just because a hispanic person is wearing a Cowboys jersey doesn’t mean they are Mexican, but I’m going to base this theory on geography.  I wish I had taken a pic of the guy wearing a Cowboys jersey that said, “Vaqueros”.

Anyway, it’s no secret that I’m no Cowboys fan.  I just can’t force myself to root for a team with such great role models like Terrell Owens, Pac-Man Jones, Tank Johnson, etc.  So when the group I was with (all Cowboys fans) decided to put a pot together for guessing the final score, I was the only one that picked the Redskins.  So not only did I enjoy seeing the Cowboys lose, I got $50 out of it.  You know what I call that?  A good weekend. :)

By the way, my final score prediction was Redskins 27, Cowboys 24.  I was off by one point.

Today's Deep Thought

  • If someone told me it wasn't "fashionable" to talk about freedom, I think I'd just have to look him square in the eye and say, "Okay, YOU TELL ME what's "fashionable." But he won't. And you know why? Because you can't ask someone what's fashionable in a smart-alecky way like that. You have to be friendly and say, "By the way, what's fashionable?"
