bunchofgrapes: (Dallas Cowboys)
Today was not a good day. First Firefox kept crashing, then I realized I lost about half my bookmarks (still didn't get them all restored), and on top of all that I've been trying to keep a headache at bay all day. I have a list of stuff I needed to get done but I'm just getting over a cold and I'm still dragging. So really, there hasn't been anything to be happy about today. Except this:

clicky to see )

I've been a Cowboys fan since I was 5 years old (sadly, that's more than a couple of decades ago) and every single season they never fail to give me a near heart attack with their moments of stupidity--though not as stupid as the Eagles' Desean Jackson running to the end zone and purposely dropping the ball in celebration one yard before he gets in. But good teams find a way to win and that the Cowboys did.

How 'bout them Cowboys!

I never expected Dallas to beat Seattle so really, I'm not all that upset--even though they should have won the game. Right now, I don't think there's a person on the planet who feels worse than Tony Romo and that's too bad. The whole team lost the game but all anyone will remember is the fact that he muffed the hold on the gimme field goal that would have won the game.

On the upside, how about those Caps? Kicking Thrasher butt tonight! Football might be over until next Fall for me (well, there's always the Super Bowl pool to play) but hockey just went past the mid point of the season. I love hockey.

Seriously, karma is being very good to me and my favorite teams. Last weekend in the football pool, I ran the board. That means out of 16 games, I didn't miss any. That also means I won the pool. This is the second time I've won the pool this season.

Last night, the Caps beat the Sabres, 7-4. The Sabres had lost maybe three games but the Caps were on fire! Even with Alex O getting tossed, they still kicked Sabres butt. And this was after kicking the Dallas Stars butt on Thursday.

And then today the Cowboys kicked Giant butt. It was a great game that went down to the wire with a guy who hasn't kicked in two years kicking the winning field goal. Now Dallas is 8-4 and firmly in front of the NFC East. How bout them Cowboys!

Now if Brass would just some decent screen time and maybe a mention of getting shot, all would be right with my world.

Until next weekend anyway.

My Boys did it! They beat the previously undefeated Colts! Tony Romo replacing Drew Bledsoe was the smartest move Bill Parcells ever made, even though Jerry Jones thought it basically gave away the season. Bet Mr. Too Much Plastic Surgery is eating those words now. Well, he might eat them if he could still move his mouth.

And what makes this even sweeter? The stupid Eagles and the pathetic Deadskins lost. Woot! Now if the Giants would just lose tomorrow night...

It is the time of the year that I anticipate even more than the return of CSI. Yes, it's the NFL kickoff. I live for NFL football (and the office pools). I grew up in football country (Oklahoma) and I've been a huge Dallas Cowboy fan since I was 5 years old and my grandpa gave me a Cowboys' uniform complete with shoulder pads and helmet for Christmas. Big time Tomboy, I was.

Yeah, yeah, I know I live in Redskins country, arch-enemies of the Cowboys, but if you're a true fan, you stay true to your team, even when you move 1200 miles away and into hostile territory. And besides, I sometimes think the Cowboys fans out-number the Redskins fans, especially when they play each other at Fed Ex Field.
