With the Christmas season upon us, I feel it’s only fitting for me to give a special holiday shoutout to my favorite sports network, ESPN.
Now, most of you know that I’m a huge supporter of ESPN. Let’s be real. These people don’t care that Dallas has run away with their division. They don’t care that Dallas has clinched a first round bye for the first time since 1995.
No, they would rather antagonize to see what kind of reaction they can get out of players and fans alike.
They’d rather scrutinize Terence Newman for his sarcastic comments leading up to their game against Detroit.
Mike Ditka would rather predict when he thinks T.O. will stab his team in the back than acknowledge that he’s had a career best year.
And now, they would rather call T.O. a distraction for poking a little fun at Jessica Simpson than talk about the upcoming game against Carolina.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from being a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan for 18 years (that’s right, I’ve been a fan since birth), it’s that everything the Dallas Cowboys do will always be under a constant microscope and criticism, regardless of the circumstance.
So from me and my fellow Cowboys fans, Merry Christmas ESPN, and thank you for yet another year of biased reporting. We will see you in Tempe.
