For as long as I can remember, I’ve had the Dallas Cowboys in my life. My father was a Dallas Cowboys fan, my grandmother was even a Dallas Cowboys fan, but at the time, I was too young to know what that meant. I remember my grandmother, when asked her name, would always say “Irvin, like Michael Irvin, except no relation.” I had no idea who he was, the Dallas Cowboys, or any of that. I didn’t know what it meant to be a Dallas Cowboys fan, I just wore around a giant 88 jersey to school because it had my last name on it.
Today, that’s going to change. I have no idea what I’m going to get myself in to, but I’m very excited. I suppose I’ll formally introduce myself…my name is Jonathan Irvin. I’m new to the LSS team and I’m in charge primarily of the operations a.k.a. “the geeky stuff.” Kelly and I are working on something special for the site and I hope you all will like it. Aside from the teaser I left, I’ll be documenting my journey into the Dallas Cowboys fandom and sharing my perspective from, as Kelly describes it, “a football virgin’s eyes.”
I want to be a Dallas Cowboys geek. I want to know what you all know and eventually I will make my pilgrimage to my first Dallas Cowboys game. Oh yeah, I’ll be writing about that as well. In any regard, I look forward to get to know you all and learn what it truly means to be a Dallas Cowboys Geek.
