Time To Piss Off The Californians

I know this next statement is going to make many people angry with me but it’s been bugging me for awhile now.

The Dallas Cowboys Training Camp should always be held in Texas. Period.

It’s true that the Dallas Cowboys are America’s Team. Just look at the Hard Knocks ratings. They were through the roof. It was one of the highest rated TV shows HBO has had in a while. Yet, what bothered me the most when watching Hard Knocks was that the Cowboys were in sunny California instead of the confines of the Alamodome in San Antonio. I know that it’s the City of San Antonio’s fault that the Cowboys are not there as well this year so I really shouldn’t be whining but it bothers me a whole bunch that I was not able to travel to San Antonio this year to see the Boys in Training Camp.

Believe me when I say this as well, I wrote the Alamodome director, scheduler, San Antonio mayor and city councilmen on the dissapointment and lost revenue the City of San Antonio lost due to scheduling a church convention at the Alamodome during the proposed Cowboys Training Camp this year which cause Jerry Jones to move Training Camp to Oxnard. I was pissed and still am about that. The Dallas Cowboys belong in Texas. Not in sunny and shaky California. You all in California already have 3 NFL franchises to go look at all you want. Now, we rented you a 4th? Shame on you California for being greedy. 

How about this Cali? We will send you Mickey Spagnola, beat writer, and a bucket of hot wings from Wing Stop for the next 20 years and you will let us keep the Cowboys where they belong? In Texas. Speaking of Micky Spagnola, I wrote him a nice little email on how I felt about his article on why the Cowboys should call Oxnard home forever during Training Camp. I don’t think he is going to be happy or laugh about it. I will just leave it at that. Sorry if you guys outside of the State of Texas don’t agree with me but many Texans do. MANY! Peace ’til next time!

Kicking it Off Cowboy Style

It’s finally here! The 2007 Dallas Cowboys Training Camp Kickoff is tonight, beginning at 6pm. Thousands of fans will pack the Alamodome in San Antonio to welcome back our beloved Cowboys.
