Cowboys give away season opener
September 12, 2011 12 Comments
My beloved Dallas Cowboys down one on the season opener against the New York Jets.
I have to hand it to the Cowboys: there is no team in history better at losing. By that I mean losing with panache, squandering a commanding lead, handing victory with stupid stupid mistakes to a team that had no chance to come back, giving its fans a comeback-win to talk about for years. That is losing with style. That is losing with an eye on losing history. How to lose. The Dallas Cowboys. Best ever.
UPDATE: The Boys redeemed themselves Sunday. This time it was the Boys behind for the entire game against the 49ers, and an injured quarterback, who came back in and rallied the team to an improbable tie, and then threw a 77-yard pass to the 1-yard line in overtime to give the Boys the field goal and the win. Emotional roller-coaster, yes it is.
