Us Against the World Mentality True Now More Than Ever

As the old saying goes: A year older, a year wiser. 

In my short 19-year life I have come to realize that every single hiccup within the Dallas Cowboys organization will make front page headline news. 

How much more evidence do Dallas Cowboys faithfuls need to prove that the rest of the world despises the Dallas Cowboys? 

I could only laugh and shake my head in disbelief when I arose from my sleepy slumber this morning and every media outlet on the face of the planet had this little alleged spat between Romo and Owens on the front page.  Words like amazing, astounding, or mind-blowing can’t even come close to describing this malarkey. 

The story immediately hit me right in the face when I jumped on the internet soon after waking up and saw it on AOL’s main page.

Turned on the television soon after getting out of the shower.  Not only did the two Mikes and the most biased personality ever, Skip Bayless, have this slander on lockdown, but CNN and Fox News also had short pieces on it as well.

Caught a glimpse of the television again while working out at the gym.  Sportscenter had two big stories on the situation as did Outside the Lines, which included a psychiatrist from Philadelphia talking about “what makes T.O. tick.”  Hell, they even had a Cowboys tab on that annoying little ticker at the bottom of the screen. 

You gotta be kidding me. 

As an avid fan of professional and college football, I cannot even call ESPN legitimate anymore.  In fact, one could liken a morning episode of Sportscenter to The View; biased, opinionated reporting, off-topic discussions, and irrelevant conversations. 

NFL Live has also become somewhat of a humorous joke with the likes of Trey Wingo and the most sorry cast of hypocritical, washed-up NFL veterans I have ever seen.  These guys speak horribly and routinely get names wrong.   

As a Cowboys fan, it is quite amusing to see Keyshawn Johnson drowning in his own jealousy.  The man is so envious of Terrell Owens that he can’t help but take a shot at the Cowboys every chance he gets.    

As a loyal fan, I refuse to turn my back on the team I have loved since being brought into this world, and will have my boy T.O.’s back against what the media says all day, every day.

All the man wants is the football, and to win.  Is that too much to ask for?  

Keep it real Cowboys fans.
