On the Road Again…

Hey Cowboy Fans!

We survived the Bye and now we watch our favorite team from afar for two weeks. The next three weeks are division games. This could get interesting. If you have seen our schedule, you know that we have some good games coming! I imagine you are as optimistic about the remaining games as I am.

Of course, I am still trying to stay with the team: One Game At A Time! This weekend, we meet up with Philly. While it will be a good game, I know the Cowboys will be victorious! HURRAY!! Pluck the Eagles, Cowboys, then do it again in December at home! Watch out for flying feathers!

Like most Cowboy fans, the Eagles are among my least favorite teams. Nothing pleases me more than seeing one of my least favorite teams getting beat but for some twisted reason, I enjoy seeing the Eagles get plucked more than ANYTHING!! The only thing that makes it better to be me when the Eagles get plucked is when the Cowboys do the pluckin’!

Philly has had every opportunity to have a better record than 3-4. They just aren’t the team they used to be. We can’t dismiss the rivalry though! Philly has always been out to beat the Cowboys – even if they can’t beat anyone else! Not this time, Eagles! They will have to produce FAR better numbers in order to accomplish that goal this year and they just don’t have it in ’em!

I’m very excited for Romo and his new contract! I was telling my husband if we didn’t get news about a contract during the Bye, we would have to wait for the season to come to an end. Aren’t you glad we didn’t have to wait?? I believe Romo is our future leader. I love who he is as an individual and what he brings to the team. The Cowboys were looking for a star… someone to fill the very big shoes of Aikman. They found that in Romo and I couldn’t be more happy about that! WAY TO GO, ROMO!!

On a personal note, I would like to send out a big WAY TO GO to my husband. We predict the games every season for fun and bragging rights. He’s whooping me this season. He had a perfect week going until the Monday Night Game ended in over-time. He now has 80 wins this season. He’s ahead of the Pro’s on INFL and he is on pace to shatter his best record ever!

Between you and me, I like that he still hasn’t had a perfect week predicting the games. That’s the only football related glory I have over him! I went 14-0 in 2005 and you can bet I don’t let him forget it!! hehe!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

    Great post! I have to say I have hated the Eagles with a passion since Irvin’s injury way back when. I hope we stomp all over them and prove we are the best team in the NFC. One step closer baby! 🙂
    P.S. I hope T.O. has a great game because that would just add a cherry on top, just because its Philly! lol

    Nice writing Shelby.
    That’s super fun that you and your husband predict the games.
    As for the Eagles, I am right there with you. I hate only one team and that’s the Eagles. The rest of them are just rivals. Since the snowballs thrown at Jimmy and the horrible way they treated Michael when he was injured on their field, I have hated them as Kelly mentioned she does. Those are horrible people there and as long as they behave that way, I honestly believe they won’t get a Super Bowl ring.

    Hey that’s great about your husband, tell him we need him to start sharing his picks with us, lol!
    On a more serious note, I love your blog and like you and every other Cowboys fan, I cant wait to kick their ass on Sunday!

    LOL He won’t share his picks with ME! We’re super competitive when it comes to these things… We don’t even share fantasy info. We’re in a mock league. Thankfully, the commish put us in different divisions… it might get ugly if he didn’t! (not that I’m an actual competitor at this point in the season rofl)
    Last weekend, hubby and I found ourselves in a situation with RBs. I got to make moves before him and took his player (a perk of being the biggest loo-hoo-zer!) The glare I got across the table said it all! HA! BUT I didn’t know this guy was on his list! Even if I had known, it probably wouldn’t have changed my move! I needed a decent RB, too! BYE was killin’ me!
