Why does the media like to use the Cowboys as a bad joke? I am a Cubs fan, that team is in something of a funk. I was watching SportsCenter this morning when they were talking about the Cubs and their turmoil. The line that the broadcaster said was, ” The Cubs are the Dallas Cowboys of MLB.” I did not like that statement. Just because the team had some “problems” of their own. Every media outlet, or most of them, badmouth the Cowboys. I just would like to remind them the Cowboys still had a winning record. No the Cowboys didn’t make the playoffs, but at least we gave it a try.
The Cubs are nothing like the Cowboys. I love the Cubs but they continuously lose every year. That’s why they are called the lovable losers. I have been trying to ignore the media about the Cowboys but this one irked me. The Cowboys are champions! So, what they haven’t won a playoff game in years. But they at least give good runs toward the playoffs.
Don’t get me wrong I am not defending the Cowboys for losing seasons. I want them to win every single year as much as the next Cowboys fan. Maybe this blog is similar to the Are We Spoiled as Cowboys Fans blog that I wrote. But I’ve taken this in a different direction. I am proud to be a Cowboys fan. This year we we will shut up all the critics and they fans that badmouthed my team.
Another quick story before I am done for the day. I work in a small town Emergency Room. Everyone there knows I am a die-hard Cowboys fan. I get harassed constantly in Chicago Bear Country. One of our ER doctors is from Philly and you guessed it – an Eagles fan. I only see him once in a while. The other day he harassed me about the whipping we received at the hand of his beloved Eagles. Then about 10 minutes later he walked by me and noticed my watch, Cowboys of course. He started to say something about the Eagles are tough and the Cowboys are nothing. But my quick little comeback was, ” At least, my Cowboys own 5 rings, how many does the Eagles have?” Never bothered me again for the rest of the night. Go Cowboys!
