Football season officially ended for our house on Sunday. Sure there will still be playoffs and eventually the big Super Bowl game, but for us football season ended on Sunday when the Cowboys lost to the darn Redskins! It just occurred to me that I have never posted on this topic…which might surprise a lot of people considering I don’t hesitate to post about it on Facebook or Twitter. My name is Jennifer and I love the Dallas Cowboys. My love for them runs deep. I remember watching them with my dad when I was too little to understand the game except to know what a touchdown was. I have memories of my dad and uncle watching them and hollering at the TV. I watched them through their glory days in the 90’s when they won 3 super bowls (5 total). I’ll never forget one of the years they were at the Super Bowl, and I was forced to go to church that night. The preacher was in the middle of his sermon when all of a sudden you hear loud cheers coming from the sound booth in the balcony. The preacher then said “Well, I guess the Cowboys just scored!” Hilarious! I tried to watch them when I was married to my first husband, but he was not a Cowboys fan and he refused to watch them play, which is why we are not married anymore. I KIDD! I KIDD! 🙂 I still watch them to this day. My husband is also a huge fan. We like to joke that we don’t have your typical marriage during football season. You know where the wife is supposed to hate football and feels neglected during football season? We love to watch the game and we love to watch them together. We celebrate their wins together and gripe in frustration when they lose together. He doesn’t have to worry I’ll talk during the game because I’m trying to hear it as well. I’d like to think he got pretty lucky with me, I know I did with him. 🙂
So back to them Cowboys. I tend to get a little fanatical during football season. My Facebook friends can vouch for this. Yes I’m THAT annoying friend on Facebook who posts her cheers and frustrations over a football game. I become a totally different person at the start of football season. I tend to be a bit competitive and I don’t usually let someone trash talk the Cowboys without them hearing an earful from me, all in fun of course. I love to gloat when they win letting all the haters know it. I don’t know why but I can’t help it. When football season is over I go back to being my normal sane self. I am pretty sure I’ve lost a few friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter over my posts during football season…..and you know what…..I really don’t care. Being a fan is part of who I am and I refuse to change that for anyone. For the record…..I am NOT one of those who posts “play by plays” constantly updating their status with each one. I cheer and vent…..but that’s it.
We had yet another frustrating season. I won’t get in to all the ups and downs of it. It’s the Cowboys…enough said! I’ll be ready next season with a new found hope and faith in them just like I am every year. Since the Cowboys won’t be at the SB this year we will be cheering for the Atlanta Falcons. Why not cheer for another Texas team? Simple. The kicker for the Falcons, Matt Bryant, is from our very own hometown and my husband went to school with him. How awesome that would be for someone from our little small town in southeast Texas to play in the SB! I’m sure most of the town is cheering for him like we are. So with that said…GO FALCONS! For now anyway. 🙂
