Chalk Talk

Primed for a big year?


Daily News Sports Editor

I’m not going to hide from this any longer. There’s something that you should know about me. I’m not proud of it – not happy about it. I don’t know why the good Lord made me this way. Often times I curse this affliction of mine, especially during November and December. Well, here it goes: I am a Dallas Cowboys fan. 

I know. It’s shocking to me, too. I don’t recall when I first saw stars in my eyes. Perhaps it was when I was child and my mom first bought me that baby Troy Aikman jersey. As a fan of America’s Team, I’ve had to deal with a lot of nonsense over the years. However, a stunt this week may just take the cake. The Cowboys, in a move I can only call brave, sent all of their season ticket holders playoff tickets, not only for the regular season, but the playoffs as well  – through the NFC Championship game to be exact. I wish I was kidding, but I’m not. 

Why Jerry? Why must you dangle that bone in front of this ravenous dog, only to keep the string just out of my reach? Whose bright idea was it to make fans pay for tickets to a game the Cowboys haven’t played in since 1995? So many unanswered questions. I shall not sleep tonight. The longer I reside in south Louisiana, the more I use my magnifying class to inspect the decisions of our, eh, “eccentric” owner. Does he know his team is 1-4 in playoff games since 2006? I suppose his son hadn’t  finished cleaning his glasses for him yet when he signed off on this move. As my stomach churns more and more at Jerry’s calls, I find myself rolling over one final question in my mind: Does the Who Dat Nation accept down on their luck Cowboys fans?
