It’s Time To Shine – Join Our Live Game Chat

Here we are, last game of the season against the Eagles again. This time its going to be a different outcome! 😉

Cowboys fans are all welcome to join our gameday live chat here at

I hope that our fellow fans that are privileged enough to be at the game will cheer loudly, at the right times, and give our Boys that much more inspiration to win – win – win!!!

Dallas is playing for the division crown and home field advantage. The Vikings won (embarrassing the hell out of the Giants I should add) so the Cowboys can no longer claim the number two seed. They will be playing next week in the first week of the playoffs.

We have one goal… Beat The Eagles!!!

Needless to say we want that NFC East division title!



Farewell Texas Stadium

Hey Cowboy Fans!

I hope this finds you all well. Until a moment ago, my heart was heavy about the Farewell of Texas Stadium. A very dear friend sent a video to me tonight. It was Yogi Berra talking about the end of Yankee Stadium. Now, I’m no Yankee fan but I know who Yogi is and I was touched by his words. I found a great deal of inspiration and strength in this 2 minute video… and I shed a few more tears because he was right.

I realized that I won’t miss this place. It will live on forever through US… the fans. We have priceless memories inside of each of us that, if we think real hard, we can go back to that moment in time and live it over and over again. Soon, we will move into our new home… a home even more worthy of America’s Team; even though we never thought we would see the day that something could replace our beloved Texas Stadium.

During the three days at Farewell Fest, I met fans of all ages that were eager to share the most amazing stories of the Cowboys and Texas Stadium. Thankfully, I was with friends that kept me laughing or I might have spent the weekend in tears! I was having the hardest time with this because as long as I can remember, Texas Stadium and the Dallas Cowboys have been hand in hand. I heard stories of joy and celebration, heart-ache and disappointment… and everything in between. There was one common theme to these stories that was unspoken between us but understood: WE ARE FANS OF THE DALLAS COWBOYS and we will follow them where ever they may go.

The other unspoken theme that I did not realize until I watched this video of Yogi Berra was: Texas Stadium WILL live on forever. While this seems like the end, it is really only the beginning! This move opens doors to us that we had only experienced in our dreams: a Super Bowl in our house, for instance! The idea of this opens the doors to many more dreams like our Dallas Cowboys WINNING a Super Bowl at home and much MUCH more! Like the Dallas Cowboys, we can now enjoy these thoughts that are larger than life in a stadium that can be seen from space!

I am not old enough to remember Texas Stadiums first moments of glory. I have said many times, “Man, I wish I had been there then.” I AM GOING TO GET MY CHANCE!! My children will some day sit down with their grandchildren and say, “Your great-grandma and great-grandpa took me to Texas Stadium when I was your age. They were there the first time the Cowboys played in the stadium in Arlington.”

WOW! I get my chance and SO DO YOU!! Suddenly, I am no longer heart heavy. I am more excited than ever!! So, to my friend that send me the video of Yogi: THANK YOU! Thank you from the bottom of my star-shaped heart! I will not soon forget that through the miles and miles that separate us, you understood what I was going through and knew exactly what I needed to see and hear. Which, of course, reminds me of how lucky I am… HOW LUCKY WE ALL ARE right here, right now… to be FANS OF THE GREATEST NFL TEAM IN THE WORLD!

And, I’m lucky to be friends with the GREATEST FANS of the GREATEST TEAM: America’s Team! For that, I want give each of you a personal THANK YOU! Thank you for allowing me to come into your lives each week. I suddenly feel like the luckiest fan in the world and I hope you do, too.

I’m going to close with two videos I made special for you… My LoneStarStruck family and friends. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed having the opportunity to be in the right place at the right time.


PS. The second video gives you information about where you can see MORE videos from Farewell Fest such as: player interviews, sights and sounds and much much more!

The Inspiration of the Playmaker

Michael Irvin accepted his induction to the Hall of Fame with heartfelt tears and the biggest smile you ever seen. I found myself crying, then laughing, smiling and cheering, what an emotional rollercoaster.

Jerry Jones’ introduction of Michael Irvin was simply perfect. You could tell he was so proud and honored to be there. He took Cowboys fans back to the 90’s and showed us how dedicated Michael Irvin really was. He gave everything on the field, up until his final game in 1999.

As Michael Irvin stepped up to the mic, I had no idea what to expect. I knew it would be an emotional speech, but I had no idea how he would touch everyone who was listening.

Irvin covered everything, from family to fans, to his faith and even the meaning of the game. He talked about his highs and his lows. He admitted that he had made some bad decisions in life and believed he did not belong amongst these great men in Canton, Ohio. But then he went on to say one of the most inspirational quotes that I will remember forever: Look Up, Get Up and Don’t Ever Give Up!

I know every Cowboy fan watching was proud of Michael, but I guarantee every single person watching, fan or not, was moved by that speech. He really stepped up and showed what a great heart he has despite the bad reputation that has followed him throughout his life.

Yes, you are right Michael, it’s more than just a game, and believe me when I say you are more than just a player, you’re an inspiration. May God bless "your latter days more than your former".
