Cowboy Fans Know No Offseason

Hey! This week has been a blast and it’s not over yet! I have one more thing up my sleeve! We’ll talk about that next week, okay? Cowboy Fans know no offseason! Fans came out by the dozens to rep the Star in a big way!

I will let these two videos tell the story. The first is pictures from the party. The music is provided with permission from my new friends Southern Steel. It’s called “Silver and Blue” and it rocks! Check your volume before hitting the play button. I like it loud!

The second video is me talking about the weekend which, for me, started Thursday night. I mentioned it briefly last week. You’re sure to get a kick out of that!

Our next party for Cowboy Fans in the Big D is the weekend of April 25th: Draft Weekend! We are also making plans for a fish fry and BBQ in June, among other things! I will keep you all posted so you can try to attend!

Enjoy the videos! If you have questions or would like more information about any of this: COMMENT ME!! I’ll comment back!!

Much love to all and

GO COWBOYS!!

Yes. It was a closer game than it should have been. Yes, there were some things each of us feel need addressed. Bottom line, we added to the win column and we have every reason to be EXCITED!!

Below is a quick video I put together. These are pictures my husband and I took while we were there. I hope you enjoy it! There are a couple of photos I liked A LOT! I’m sure you will, too!

The Last MNF at Texas Stadium

I want to warn you in advance that I am likely to be all over the place during this blog. I have so much to say! I missed being here with you last week! I was working like crazy to get a 4 day weekend for the holiday!!
 
Eagles vs Cowboys at Texas Stadium for football on a Monday night – of course!!

I may need that extra day to recover, ya know? I hope to run into some awesome fans this weekend! By the way, did you see the article about NFL Fans. They said Cowboys fans were ranked 10th. You’re kidding me, right? It’s time we get LOUD AND PROUD my friends! Together, we’ll show them what 10th looks like, okay!

Remember DEFENSE!! We are part of the DEFENSE!!

Seriously, the fans play a big roll in a home game. I mean, it’s called “Home Field Advantage” for a reason, right? That refers partly to US – THE FANS!! Break out the horns and noise makers or some of the kids annoying toys. LET’S MAKE SOME NOISE!!!!

I CAN’T HEAR YOU!!!

I’m excited about our Cowboys!! They looked good, huh? I can hardly wait for Monday Night! I hope to see you there! PLUCK THE EAGLES!! You’re going, right? It’s the last Monday Night game in Texas Stadium. It’s the last first game of the season in the stadium. It’s one of the first of many lasts for all of us. We should make the most of every moment!

Last and certainly not least, a personal note:

My heart and mind is on tomorrow. As you may already know, I am an optimist. I believe there is good in anything. Sometimes it is hard to find the good and sometimes it takes years to discover the positives… I have come to the conclusion that September 11th is a day that connects each of us on a human level. I am thankful. I will truly never forget.

Much love to you all
and
GO COWBOYS!

The Bandwagon Could Get Crowded This Year

Since the success of the ’90’s Cowboys Dynasty I’ve found myself when asked what team I support explaining that I’ve been a Cowboys fan since I was 7 years old. Why do I feel the need to explain how long I’ve been a fan? One word. Bandwagon.

Now I admit I did jump on the Cowboys Bandwagon when they were being successful in the ’70’s and I feel bandwagon jumping is totally acceptable between the ages of 5 and 12. Any older than that and you’ll be a bandwagon jumper forever. You were probably a Patriots fan for a few years. Maybe a Rams fan. Obviously never an Eagles fan because, well, you know. They’ve never won anything significant enough to warrant said "jump".

Loyalty. Perseverance. Fanaticism. These are three of the big things a true fan brings. I read Shelby’s post and she epitomizes what a true Cowboys fan is. At the end of a Cowboys game your emotions should parallel that of the team.

I’m sure this year we’ll have plenty of people jumping aboard The Blue Star Super Bowl Express and that’s cool. The more the merrier. And after the 6th trophy is hoisted high in the air and we all go out and buy new t-shirts I’ll still be explaining that I was a fan way back when just in case I’m mistaken for the newbies.

What was it that first drew me to America’s Team in 1975? The cool uniforms? The great teams? The awesome stadium? I think initially it was the cheerleaders.
