I am a Dallas Cowboys fan.
I'll always be a Cowboys fan.
I grew up expecting Super Bowl victories in the 90s. They came easy. The love America's Team. I loved the Big 3: Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin.
Since 1997, the Cowboys have won 1 playoff game. Ouch!
Over the past three years, the Cowboys have ended their seasons with an 8-8 record, which is quite a bit better than the 4 total wins they posted in the 1988-1989 seasons, but the team has fallen on hard times.
In the midst of many fair-weather fans who are switching their loyalties, Holly and I are staying strong. We're Cowboy fans during this season so we can enjoy being Cowboys fans in better seasons.
It sure is nice to be in a city excited to root for their team in the Super Bowl. In an attempt to be "all things to all people," I've grown into a Broncos fan as well. I like Peyton Manning and would love to see him win another Super Bowl.
Last time a team from the city I lived in went to the Super Bowl, it didn't go well. In Super Bowl XXIX, the San Diego Chargers lost 49-26 at the hands of Steve Young, Jerry Rice and the rest of the San Francisco 49ers, a team I loved to hate as a Cowboys fan growing up.
And Jerry Jones...instead of watching the Super Bowl, please work on your draft plan. That's time well spent!
