Texas Stadium Farewell Season

I wanted to stop by and drop everyone a quick note. I can’t say enough about the season we all said farewell to Texas Stadium. I will let the video below tell my story from start to finish. I realize it is a long video but it does take us from the Open Practice in August through to the final season game at Texas Stadium…

I also wanted to wish you all a safe and wonderful holiday season.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!


Merry Christmas Starstruck

Hello Cowboys fans and Lonestarstruck lovers!

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish a very Merry Christmas to Kelly and her family. Kelly (Starstruck) is an amazing lady with talent like I’ve never seen. Her passion for The Dallas Cowboys shows in every thing she creates. She does so much for Cowboys fans and puts so many hours of work into this blog site and the graphics she creates. I am constantly in awe of Kelly.

We’ve been so fortunate lately to begin to really acquire some good writing on here. It’s a terrific group of people. I am so pleased for Kelly’s sake that this site is becoming so successful and attracting such awesome people. It’s Kelly’s standard of excellence that has set the bar and is bringing these great people her way.

I met Kelly on myspace just a little less than 2 years ago and I have grown to know her and love her as a very very close friend. I can’t express my affection for her in words. We have a deep love for our boys (we each have an only child) and we have a ridiculous love for The Dallas Cowboys. In having that in common, we had a foundation to build a beautiful friendship and mutual respect for each other. I feel incredibly blessed to be closing out 2007 with Kelly as a daily part of my life.

I know you all appreciate her as much as I do so if you would just shout out in the comments here and let her know, it will mean the world to her.


I can’t wait to see what you’re going to come up with next. It just keeps getting better all the time. 


A Silver and Blue Christmas

This year has definitely been one to remember. Not only has the team been successful, but so has this website I created only a year ago. Maybe they go hand in hand, maybe the team’s success has lead to the success of many things, whatever it is – I am thankful. I am so glad to be a part of this place for Cowboys fans to come together.

I think a lot of us feel the same, this year has been different. We have been able to communicate with Cowboys fans across the nation, even across the world! Whether you believe it or not, the fans make a great difference in the world of sports. We all share a great passion for the silver and blue and we couldn’t be more proud of our ‘Boys.

No matter where the future takes us, we will stand behind this great team like we always have. They have great potential to go all the way, but I say lets take it one game at a time.

From everyone here at, we wish you a very Merry Christmas and look forward to the great years ahead for this phenomenal team.


Home Sweet Home

What a nice Christmas present, huh Cowboys fans! With Green Bay’s loss to Chicago today, the Cowboys have clinched home field advantage throughout the playoffs. No matter the outcome of week 16’s games, the Cowboys will have the comfort knowing they will be home because they defeated the Packers back in November.

Dallas has not been the No. 1 Seed in the NFC since 1995, which is also the last time they won a Super Bowl. Coincidence? Only time will tell!

Following the last game of the regular season next week, the Cowboys won’t play again until January 12-13 for the NFC Divisional round. This will give some of our recently banged up players a chance to rest up and get ready.

"This weekend’s results give me a great feeling of pride in the job that has been done by our players and our coaching staff," Jerry Jones said in a statement. "I am particularly pleased for the Dallas Cowboys fans who have given us so much support. They are truly deserving of being able to share in the experience of bringing NFL playoff football back to Texas Stadium. We know that our home crowd will make a positive difference in the outcome of our games in January."  

Way to go Cowboys!


Getting Credit, Where Credit Is Due

Cowboys’ Phillips voted Motorola NFL Coach of the Week

Cowboys coach Wade Phillips has been selected the Motorola NFL Coach of the Week for Week 13. Phillips led the Cowboys to a 37-27 win over the Packers, as Dallas improved to 11-1. Phillips was selected as Motorola NFL Coach of the Week from among three finalist by voters on The other finalists were Panthers coach John Fox and Chargers coach Norv Turner.

In January, voting will be held on to determine the Motorola NFL Coach of the Year. I’m sure Phillips will be on there as well, so everyone get ready to vote and get him in there.

The Cowboys have been dominating the league in awards this week.

T.O. got NFC offensive player of the Month, Romo with two awards, one for NFC offensive player of the week, and second came from Fed Exs air award winner for week 13.

Now Wade’s getting in on the action! Congrats to him!  He has most certainly earned it!

Four games left in the season and now the Cowboys are starting to get the respect they fully deserve!  The league is finally Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due!  It is most definitely Christmas Season! Which one of you fanatics out there asked for that one this Christmas?  (Chuck raises hand)!

Have a Great Weekend everyone! I want to be able to hear you guys on Sunday!  loud And Proud!  Let the Whole World hear us!!  Go Cowboys!!

Tis The Season to Be Jolly

I just wanted to share a few of my “Jolly” thoughts with all of you that are Starstruck like me. I am in the brightest of spirits and this I hope will give you reason to be as well.

I love Christmas, but who doesn’t?

If you don’t love Christmas then see a doctor immediately, because there is something wrong with you. Christmastime is a season, a month long feeling of happiness, family gatherings, food and friends and LOTS OF FOOTBALL!!  How can any red-blooded American not love this time of year?

I am personally jolly because my days in Abilene are coming to a close and I will soon be back home permanently with my son. Even though I am so happy to be going home, I wouldn’t trade this last 6 months in Abilene for anything because I have become closer to my father than I have ever been in my 40 years. I thank God I came out here and got close to him again two months before my mom died. Although my parents spent my entire life hating each other, my Dad was really supportive during the loss of my mother, just as he was 7 years ago when I had to put her in a lock down alzheimer’s unit.

Another thing my Dad and I have enjoyed together is FOOTBALL. I seriously doubt either one of us, with our troubled history, ever expected to bond over FOOTBALL. When I was little and my dad was a very young father, he was a mad man on football watching day. I dared not speak or ask questions or get between him and the television. Now all these years later, we’re having a blast watching football and he’s teaching me so much more about the game. Yes, now that he’s a mellowed Grandpa (We call him “Papa”, not Grandpa), he’s really enjoying sharing his love for the game.

My dad is one like many dads. He played college ball briefly and suffered a career ending knee injury that altered the course of his entire life. A really intelligent young man who was never buried in books and still made near perfect grades. He had so many opportunities and chose football over everything. He’s 68 years old and still misses playing the game and it still pains him to think of “what if I hadn’t hurt my knee”. He loves the game more than anything, come to think of it, football and basketball are really two of the few things he’s passionate about. So we have bonded as I have grown into a more knowledgeable fan this year. I am deeply happy and jolly over my rekindling my relationship with my dad. And I am thrilled to know more intricacies of the game!

I am more than jolly over the rebirth of The Dallas Cowboys’ greatness. As a fan, I am in for several years of happiness and several consecutive Decembers of joy in a row. I remember those years in the 1990’s and I smile the moment I think of them. I can’t express how much I will look forward to the Christmas season even more because MY COWBOYS ARE ON TOP AGAIN!

I don’t have to explain this to you if you’re a Cowboys fan unless you’re a new Cowboys fan. You know exactly what it feels like. The spirit of The Dallas Cowboys is so similar to the spirit of Christmas. It’s almost inexplicable. You’re overcome with happiness, you get butterflies, you can’t stop smiling. IT’S SIMPLY MAGICAL.

This team truly is magical. This organization itself is so magical and has such an impact on players when they arrive, it’s amazing to watch. Look at all the bad boys we turn around! You can’t be around the Dallas Cowboys organization and not catch the fever. Everyone plays better here.

There is one thing that separates The Dallas Cowboys from teams like The Patriots. They keep you on your toes, they make you chew your fingernails, they make mistakes and then come back and blow your doors off making up for that mistake in double with magical plays and bold moves. No boring games here in Dallas!  

It began with a gun-slinging quarterback that stepped onto the field and took over and made a mid-season turn around. He sparked the flame that started the magic back just a mere 13 months ago. A talented team with magic just waiting to be sparked, followed that leader and began bringing an entire City and The Dallas Cowboys Nation back to days of hope and joy. Add to the mix, a new “Players Coach” in Wade Phillips and the awesome Jason Garrett, and the glory days have returned. We are now looking at a team with numbers and stats better than we had in the 90’s. That is nothing short of a miracle because I never ever thought it was possible.

We have amazing, I mean amazing talent out there. The names are too long to list. There is not a starter on this Dallas Cowboys team that doesn’t bring something extra special on the field with them to every game.

I can’t think of a reason not to be Jolly and hopeful and filled with pure joy than I am right now. Christmastime is a wonderful season and The Dallas Cowboys are certain in the post-season, with a real chance at a Super Bowl appearance. You just can’t get me in a bad mood. If this doesn’t find you in a JOLLY mood, then I just don’t know what to do with you!

The Dallas Cowboys are 11-1 for the first time in history and it’s only just begun!
