Calling all Cowboy Fans!

‘We just didn’t play well.’
 
I know there is an in-state rivalry between the two teams. It’s still ‘only’ pre-season. As far as I’m concerned, it’s important for the team to get these on the road learning experiences out of the way before the season starts. We’ve seen what they can do at home! Of course, I’m disappointed that we didn’t beat Houston. Phillips also said in reference to the offense and defense, ‘We just didn’t play well.’ Not to say this like it’s a bad thing but: IT’S HOUSTON!
 
Oops! I said it like it was a bad thing.
 
Phillips said he was worried about how the Cowboys would react in front of the crowd in Houston. It’s no big secret that the home team has a definite advantage. This will prepare The Boys for their tricky schedule on the road. Our schedule has us visiting stadiums where the fans show no mercy and their favorite team can be just as ruthless! Sure, it was loud in Houston but we ain’t seen nothin’ yet! Compared to many fan-filled stadiums, Houston doesn’t know fan intimidation! Personally, I would like to see Cowboy Fans get a little better at it! I’m a fan: Loud & Proud! I start my pre-game ritual knowing in my heart that I will be celebrating a win in the coming hours. Does that always happen? Of course not! Is that part of what makes it so much fun for fans? YES, IT IS! It’s the rollercoaster ride that thrills us.
 
It’s the rich history of our favorite team and the competitive spirit in all of us that brings people from all over the world together. The action and drama both on and off the field that keeps us on the edge of our seats. Whether you love, hate or love to hate them, you know one thing for sure: The Dallas Cowboys have always been and will always be America’s Team. No pre-season loss to the Texans can change that and it shouldn’t change the recent positive headlines. We have waited, for what seems like a long time, to get a play-off quality team. We can still say SUPER BOWL and COWBOYS in the same sentence without fear of sounding overly optimistic. Or, in my case, finding yourself on the receiving end of the look that says, ‘That’s cute. She likes football and The Cowboys.’
 
I’m calling all Cowboy Fans! Whether you watch from stadium seating, at your favorite sports bar, with family and friends or at home practicing your arm-chair QB techniques; BE LOUD – BE PROUD! When our opponent has the ball, every Cowboy Fan should be so loud that the parking lot vibrates! IT’S TIME!! Time to rally around our team! Why wait for things to start looking good mid-season? Why wait for that big win or big play? The time is NOW. There are people that get paid to figure out what went wrong and how to fix it. As a fan, it’s my job to be supportive and positive. Not because I get paid to do so but because I LOVE THE DALLAS COWBOYS!!
 
GO COWBOYS!

  2. Oh, you are SO right! A preseason game is important. No doubt about that, and yes, it showed some areas that need work, but a preseason loss to any team does not spell out defeat. Our season is still looking good. Th WORLD CHAMPION Dallas Cowboys are Superbowl bound!

    I can identify with the comment “That’s cute. She likes football and the Cowboys.”

    LOL Bette! I get that often and I secretly like it! It usually turns into a debate that leads to a friendly wager. Long story short: I have a nice photo collection of men wearing clothes they wouldn’t normally wear OR OWN! *giggle*
