See you at the game!

I couldn’t possibly be more excited about the Cowboys than I am RIGHT NOW! I am still on Cloud 9 from Sundays game against the Bears. The icing on my birthday cake was reading the following at MyFoxDFW.com this morning.

St. Louis (0-3) comes to Texas Stadium on Sunday without running back Steven Jackson, followed by Dallas going to Buffalo to play a Bills club that’s 0-3 and might be without quarterback J.P. Losman.

Should the Cowboys win both, as expected, Romo, Terrell Owens and Marion Barber will be able to say they’ve already done something Troy, Michael and Emmitt never did: win their first five games. The Triplets’ best start was 4-0 in 1995, the season of Dallas’ last Super Bowl title. The Cowboys haven’t been 5-0 since 1983.

With such lowly foes coming up, some are already talking up the sixth game, at home against New England. There’s a good chance both teams will be unbeaten going into that Oct. 14 matchup.

Wouldn’t that be COOL!? To witness our favorite team do something our favorites from the recent past never did…! If that’s not enough to make any Cowboy Fan jump out of their seats, I don’t know what is! I’m sitting here waiting for Sunday with my game gear on, camera and tickets in hand! I have missed watching my Boys in action live and in person. I CAN’T WAIT for Sunday to arrive!

The Cowboys of old would make me worry here. They would win the games fans knew we shouldn’t and arrive at the easy games asleep at the wheel. This season, I don’t have that concern. They want it as much as I want it for them! I do have a confession to make. Brace yourself for this one! I am preparing myself for a 6-1 record through the first 7 games. I’m sure all of you will agree that the one game in question will be exciting. With that game being at home, we will have an advantage if the home crowd will get it together!

Number one rule for fans in the stands: QUIET PLEASE, OFFENSE AT WORK! Watch the jumbo, people! Don’t make this crazy little 5′ nothing, buck and a quarter female run up and down the isles telling you how to help the team win! BECAUSE I WILL IF THAT’S WHAT IT TAKES! I know you get excited. I DO, TOO! You have to know when to use the seat you paid for and when to say, "I didn’t pay for this seat to use it!"

Of course, I’m trying to not get ahead of the schedule… to see the games one week at a time. Sometimes that’s easier said than done. It’s especially hard for fans like you and me, right? We can do this, Cowboy Fans! We have to stay with the team. They are focused on one game at a time and so should we! More important than that, WE CAN HELP THEM WIN the ever important home games!

We can make the league fear Texas Stadium! Everyone has noticed that the Cowboys mean business but they haven’t taken the home crowd seriously yet. Put the two together and you have a force that can’t be beat!

My fantasy teams did much better this week. I won a game I thought was a sure loss. We battled to the end. I don’t care to admit how bad I did predicting the games last week. Uugh! I have some catching up to do. Here are my early predictions for this weekend: Houston, NYJ, Balt, Dallas, Chicago, Miami, Green Bay, Carolina, Seattle, Pitt, Indy, K.C., Philly, N.E.

Good luck with your fantasy teams and predictions! I’ll see YOU at the game on Sunday!

GO COWBOYS!!
