We’ve Got A New Attitude To Go With Our New Look!

So what do you guys think of the new digs? Last week I made the decision that I wanted a change. I felt I needed to put focus back on the reason I began this website back in 2006. When “Star Struck” was born it was all about Cowboys graphics. I used my graphic design talent to make visual art representing the team I have loved all my life.  I was finally giving back. It felt good, it was exciting. But somehow over the years this website became more of a traditional blog and while that’s great, it’s not me.

I’m a creative and visual artist. I get an urge to write when something sparks my attention and I feel passionate about it, but for the most part I could just create graphics all day long – that’s my passion.

I want to get back to creating “Cowboys Graphic Delights” for my friends, my fans and all of the followers of Lone Star Struck. Back when MySpace was booming, I could pump out dozens of new graphics a week. Then as MySpace fell, I let myself fall. Well I’m back and standing tall and proud. I am committing to posting a new visual delight daily.

We will still continue to have Cowboys posts as well as other new features that we will introduce in the coming days. The Dallas Cowboys have a rich history in its 50 years of existence and we will have a full section of history and flashbacks for your pleasure. We will also feature LSS Exclusives such as book reviews, interviews, giveaways and contests. In addition, we are inviting you to be a part of our community here. Our new photo galleries and Fan Shots section will allow you to share your experiences with other fans across the nation.

As you can tell we are very excited about the new changes here at The future is bright. And if I may, how great do our Cowboys look for this season?! It’s the perfect time to get a new outlook.

For my first Graphic Delight, I present our first ever Lone Star Struck wallpaper. Dedicated to the Dallas Cowboys 50 years of football. Enjoy and I will see you back here tomorrow with a new daily dose of Cowboys fun!

Back in Dallas




Jason Garrett… name sounds familiar. Oh yeah, he was Troy Aikman’s back up QB in the 90s. Those were some great years! Even though Garrett didn’t get to play very often, he was still there taking it all in. And now after a day long meeting at the Ranch with Jerry and Stephen Jones and Bill Parcells, Garrett has been offered the job as Offensive Coordinator. Not only that but he is now one of the top candidates for the Head Coach Opening. What? This guy wasn’t even on anyone’s list as a probable contender. Well, since when does that matter?

Wade Phillips seems to be a very likely possibility. The Dallas Cowboys requested and were granted permission from the Chargers to talk to Phillips. During an interview the native Texan told reporters:

"I’m really happy where I am. I can’t say enough about the (Chargers’) organization and the players and the fans. But I have family and a home there. Us Texans, even though we haven’t been there in 20 years, it’s always home and the Cowboys are our home team."

That sounds pretty promising to me. Considering the way the 06 Chargers season went, I think I’d be happy with that. Phillips has been head coach of 4 NFL teams: Saints, Falcons, Bills and Broncos. He has the experience and has been very successful most recently as the defensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers who were 14-2 this past season.

I believe Phillips and Garrett would make an awesome pair. However there are still other names and possibilities that have been tossed around and no decision has been confirmed yet. So back to the waiting game. I feel confident whatever the decision, that 2007 will be a very successful year for the Dallas Cowboys. A new leader… a new year… a new outlook.
