I want to be a Cowboys fan.
I’ve been a Cowboys fan since I became “football conscious” in the mid-70’s.
Most of my life I’ve been a Cowboys fan, through good and bad and thick and thin.
I really, really try…
…but I have come to detest Jerry Jones and his meddlesome ownership so much that my Cowboys Fandom is in serious jeopardy—it’s barely alive, on life support. They’ve disappointed me too many times, and 99% of those disappointments can be laid at the feet of that Stretch-Faced Carnival Barker (mediocre coaches, stupid draft choices, that monstrosity of a stadium).
For the AFC, I’ve always been a Dallas Texans Kansas City Chiefs fan—fortunately they’re good right now.
College—University of Texas Longhorns and TCU Horned Frogs…TCU is closer to home and UT is closer to where my heart is (Central Texas Hill Country)…both of them are pretty bad right now, and will hopefully rebuild soon.
High School—Strawn Greyhounds (my dad’s alma mater, where they play 6-man football).
