Hey, do you feel that? It’s the changing of the seasons for sports.
Graduation has come to Sweetwater. That sound you hear is the underclassmen stepping up a notch. It’s time for 7 on 7 and the excitement of another football season isn’t far away.
As a special forces soldier in the U.S. Army, Staff Sgt. Tim Kennedy has survived IED blasts, 30-hour gunfights and missions behind enemy lines so classified that he’ll never be able to discuss them. He also survived time away from his wife, two daughters and his professional sports aspirations.
And like every good soldier, Kennedy did it without hesitation.
“It’s surreal to be with those guys the first time out,” he said of his time spent with elite combat squads. “Gunfire goes off, and everyone runs towards it. I guess that’s a character trait that sounds flawed, but it’s reassuring to find there are others like you.”
It’s currently 8:35 here at Union Station in downtown Dallas.
I’m waiting for my train at 9:15 and I’m on the internets thanks to my new wireless modem card.
No more waiting to post an article. I’m free!!!!!
I took this picture of Reunion tower with my phone, sent it to my Photobucket account, and voila! I have copied the link to this post.
I’m not trying to sound like I’m bragging cause I’m not. I’m just excited about the new way to blog and the freedom to do so.
Man, this is fun!
A national survey has confirmed what most of us already knew: Drivers in the Dallas-Fort Worth are mean, rude and dangerous.
Only drivers in New York are worse, according to the AutoVantage In the Driver’s Seat Road Rage Survey released Tuesday by the Affinion Group, a national marketing and consulting firm.
It sounds as if Martellus Bennett is being asked to do more this year as a tight end for the Cowboys.
Bennett believes that the Cowboys he forms the best tight end tandem in the league with perennial Pro Bowler Jason Witten. It’s a point that’s tough to argue against, and the Cowboys are determined to take advantage of their talent.
According to a report in the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett lovingly told quarterback Tony Romo that his butt was too big to be a good finisher this season. Too much cake? [Uwe Blog]
There is a phrase in west Texas we used when things weren’t going well, no matter how hard you tried. “Snake bit.” If your attitude was trying to do the best you could and it still didn’t work, or more specifically, you dug that hole you were in a little deeper, you were just snake bit.
The Cowboys today remind me of that situation. When you are snakebit, you start to look around as to why. Sometimes, you even start thinking about good luck vs. bad luck.
For example did you know that ever since the mascot Rowdy has been the mascot of the Cowboys, they haven’t won a playoff game?
When you are a fan of the Cowboys, you tend to analyze everything. Even mascots. So yesterday’s story about practice sort of looked like a snake bit kind of day.
There was a moment during Monday’s minicamp practice where Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams was wide open and didn’t get the ball.
I will not be working at the Cowboys Stadium this Saturday because of a committment I have to do at my regular job Saturday. So, I’m going to have to miss the Jonas Brothers Concert. That could be a blessing in disguise though.
And as a public service, I’m going to post this for a friend over at D Magazine.
I have five perfect nieces and one perfect nephew. I would do anything for them. So when the nieces learned that Kevin, Nick, and Joe would headline a show at Dallas Cowboys stadium in Arlington on June 20th, they squealed with delight and I picked up the phone.
Did I buy just five perfect tickets? Noooooo. I pledged a BUNCH OF CASH toward a luxury “Silver Level” box on the 50-yard line with 20 cushy seats, a private bathroom, bar, and freedom to squeal and hear the concert at the same time. That is why my nieces call me Uncle Nancy—I am not your average aunt.
Anywhoo, Uncle Nancy and her five perfect nieces need to fill up the box, which by the way, is the closest one to the stage. I am selling 10 tickets for $250 apiece (less than face value), and each pair comes with a parking pass (normally something like $40). You think $250 is steep? Tickets in the cheaper low level boxes at the stadium are listed on Stubhub.com at $1,200 APIECE. E-mail me now. I hate it when they cry.
