I know I am and based on some of the posts I’ve read by a few of you – you are ready, too!
We had our first regular season games this week, and boy were they exciting! I did watch the Redskins/Eagles game Monday night so that I could see how our division was playing… and well… I’m not sure if the Redskins just really suck or if the Eagles are that good! I know that the new offense seems to be working for the Eagles… which I’m not happy about! The nice thing is that several of my fellow bloggers are just as passionate about their teams as I am mine – so this will be a fun season and I predict that trash talk will abound! (Yes, I’m talking to you Surviving the Madhouse and Me, Myself and Kids!)
Now, onto the team that really matters!
Our game against the Giants was interesting. My favorite part had to be when the announcers were talking about how the negotiations with the players union resulted in fewer practices, and obviously the fact that there are fewer practices are why both teams suck tonight. (I might have paraphrased that a bit.)
I will say that, as always, our defense looked GREAT! We have some great veteran players and a few rookies that are showing some potential. There was one point where a botched play on offense took us off the field in a highly emotionally charged state and a few minutes later, Romo had cooled down and gone over to talk to the player that goofed and gave him encouragement. That’s not an action we’ve seen him do very much, and is a sign of a great leader – so maybe he’s finally coming into his own. (At least, that is my very dear hope!)
As great as our defense looked, that is not what my friends and I text about most when watching the game. The most common phrase used when we are going back and forth is: “Don’t tell me! I’m still behind!”
I’m not the only one that gets behind during the game! I did have to laugh that the phrase came up in two separate text messages!
And, for all of us Cowboys Fans that know exactly how this feels:

LOL – I have to be honest with you, I know very little about football. Mike’s a huge Redskins fan so I’ve been subjected to the sport every Sunday and Monday night and Thursday night and some Saturdays. My TV will never be the same. 😉
Ah! It’s Mike not you that’s the fan… Well, you’ll be the proxy! I’ll just trash talk him thru you! 🙂
Hope all is well – or at least better! Kids doing well at school?
My other gf does that too!! lol, She’s a Tamp Bay fan.
The first two weeks went well. I promise to post about it soon. I just gotta find my groove again 😉
HA HA ..
Made me laugh..
BUT IT’S NOT FOOTBALL!!!
Only the USA call Football (Real Football) Soccer
Soccer is the biggest sport on the planet..
THAT IS FOOTBALL…
Still, I was about crying with laughter…Good blog, lol
Lol, yup, we’re the only ones that call it football when the players feet aren’t allowed to touch the ball! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by!
Hand Egg? 😀
And I am making a bigger attempt to visit people who visit me. T’is only right..
We don’t have football here, but rugby – so I totally concur with your ecard pic! HAHA!
I heard you Cowgirl.
I did not see all of the game. However, I did see the 2nd quarter. It was beautiful. So, I enjoyed the game, but I am not ready to go crazy just yet.
oh – I’m sure they’ll crash and burn! 🙂 But they did do really well Monday night!
You stink! Who do your Boys play this week?
However, I am not sold yet either.
We play the Kansas City Chiefs – and they won last week… but they aren’t divisional, so I don’t worry about it too much!
They smacked their opponent around. Where is the game? That could be a tough game for you guys.
It’s there – Chiefs have the home field advantage… yeah, I know…
Want to know who I am rooting for?
I’m hopeful for a good season. I’m not going to get excited yet, but hopeful… Sadly when it comes to the cowboys I am a fair weather fan. At least I can admit it…
As long as you are honest about it! 🙂
Because I stick with them through the rough times, I’m really able to appreciate the good times! Of course, this also means I spend a lot of time yelling at the TV!
