Bengals WR Chris Henry Has Passed Away

On behalf of all of us here at Lone Star Struck we would like to express our sincerest condolences on the sudden passing of Chris Henry. Our thoughts and prayers are with Chris’ family and team at this difficult time.

The young wide receiver’s tragic death reminds us exactly how fragile life is. Henry leaves behind three young children.

CHARLOTTE, N.C.(AP)—Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chris Henry has died, one day after suffering serious injuries upon falling out of the back of a pickup truck in what authorities describe as a domestic dispute with his fiancee.

Police say Henry died at 6:36 a.m. Thursday. Henry was 26.

Away from the team because of a broken forearm, Henry was rushed to the hospital Wednesday after being found on a residential road. Police say a dispute began at a home about a half-mile away, and Henry jumped into the bed of the pickup truck as his fiancee was driving away from the residence.

Police said at some point when she was driving, Henry “came out of the back of the vehicle.”

Rest in Peace Chris.

Are You ‘Cowboys Obsessed’??

I am. Everywhere I turn, I see something Cowboys. My apartment is filled with a lot Cowboys things. My truck is yellow in color, but I have Cowboys memorabilia all over it from stickers on the back of the truck bed to the steering wheel cover, all Cowboys. At work I have to wear scrubs but I have on Cowboys crocs and a Cowboys watch. My work badge also has a Cowboys pin on it too. I did have to make one scrub top into a Cowboys scrub top by putting a patch on it.. When I am not working, I am wearing something Cowboys. Just last week, I walked into a business and they recognized me because of all my Cowboys clothing I wear. I usually am wearing a Dallas Cowboys hat too. Are you the same way?

It has gotten to the point my fiancee is now a Cowboys fan by just watching me watch the games. She bleeds Blue and Silver just like me. I found that out in the Cowboys/Bills game 2 years ago. Tony had a bad game but Folk won it for us. I was jumping up and down and then looked over and she was doing the same. That’s when I knew she was hooked. Now we have a little bambino on the way. She agreed with me that when the baby is born something to do with the Cowboys will be incorporated into the name. We know what the name will be if it is a boy or girl. But we wont give away that secret right now.

Does anyone feel the same way? Is anyone else ‘Cowboys obsessed’? Maybe someone else is more obsessed than I am. Who knows. But we enjoy our Cowboys and are not afraid to show it. Now the only thing I haven’t done is meet a Dallas Cowboy in person, someday I think I will. But living in Bear country it is slim. In the next few months I will be featured in Dallas Cowboys Star magazine in the fan profile section. My next thing is to get an Cowboys tattoo with my fiancee and kids name in it somewhere. If you would like to see what some of my room looks like go to my myspace page. If your not a friend already become one. If that isn’t obsessed I don’t know what is. Tell me ways you are obsessed with our beloved Cowboys?

How ’bout them Cowboys!

HELP! True Blue Fan Stuck in Bear Country…

I have been a Cowboys fan since the late 70’s early 80’s. Unfortunately I am stuck in Illinois, an hour and half away from Chicago, in a little town of about 15,000 people. So needless to say most of the fans here are Chicago Bears fans. Some of my best friends are major Bears fans. Everywhere I look I see that annoying Bears head.

I drive around in a yellow truck. So I stand out. But my truck is decked out in Cowboys emblems – steering wheel cover, mats, a big true blue sticker on the back.

The offseason has been very trying this year. I had to hear all the crap about T.O. and then listen to the talk about Jay Cutler. OK, they finally have a decent QB but they will still stink. HA. Anyway this is my first and I hope many blogs about the Cowboys.

OK lets talk about the Cowboys and T.O. since I mentioned that. I was a little upset that they released him. With all the injuries to everyone last year, I don’t think the offense had time to click. Roy Williams was hurting, Tony was hurting but I don’t think would really admit it. I would have loved to see what the offense would have brought this year. Tony, T.O., Williams, Witten, Barber, and Jones. I would just had to say WOW. I know T.O. would have complained about the ball not coming his way, but we will never know what would happened.

Now lets really see if getting rid of T.O. was actually a move to make the team “Romo-friendly”. What exactly is “Romo-friendly” anyway? Oh well, we will see.

I bleed Blue and Silver throughout my veins. I have converted my fiancee also. I have a little one on the way too. Another Cowboys fan in this Bear town. I’m getting the numbers up. Ha Ha. Thanks for reading.
