We'll all gather around the TV at 7:00 to watch Tony Romo and company play the first game of the season. And then within 15 minutes we'll be beaten down beyond recognition. Then comes the 4th quarter when time will simply stop. We can at least hope for a career ending injury to Rowdy.
I went to a Houston Oilers / Dallas Cowboys preseason game one year, and I still haven't recovered. But I still remember being able to sneak to a 50 yard line seat late in the 4th. I also recall having a radio with me and hearing play by play man Dale Hansen say, as the clock slowly, slowly moved: "When I am on my death bed and I have just minutes to live, please replay the last 15 minutes of this game because it will seem like I will be living forever."
Stolen phrase: "Games that don't count where the players don't try which we watch for reasons we don't quite understand."
