I was a diehard Cowboy fan (from birth) until J. Jones bought the team and sent the legendary Tom Landry packing in the late '80s. Never been so pissed off in my life! The Cowboys lost a lot of lifetime, diehard fans down here over the way Jones treated Landry. But, since then, my team's the New Orleans Saints. My pop's Louisiana born and bred, and I was there for the Saints' opening kickoff at old Tulane field in 1967, so I've always had a soft spot for them(even though they suck most of the time). They've had a few shining moments though, and this year's group might kick some major ass if the defense will show up on a regular basis. I try to fly down to N'Awlins at least once a year to catch a game at the Superdome. Nobody parties like Saints fans!
My all-time favorite players and memories though are of Landry's Cowboys when growing up. My first uniform was a Dallas Cowboys #22 (recent Hall of Fame inductee Bob Hayes). Great players and great teams. Still hate the 49ers and the Steelers for whipping the Cowboys on a regular basis back in the 70s and early 80s.
On a different note, I travel to Dallas/Ft. Worth every two to three weeks on business and have been watching the construction of this new Cowboys football stadium. Its freakin' unbelievable! The biggest, baddest facility I've ever seen. And I can't believe people are actually paying those ridiculously insane prices for tickets to watch the Cowboys. Only way I'll ever go to a game there is if someone gives me some tickets(and the Saints will have to be the visiting team). Geaux Saints!!
I remember back when New England Patriots were the Boston Patriots. By the way, I like the Patriots' uniforms they were wearing Monday night better than their present-day unis. I'm old school. Great players and history-Jim Nance, Jim Plunkett, Randy Vataha, Carl Garrett, "Mini" Mack Herron, Sam "Bam" Cunningham(Randall Cunningham's older bro). Never liked Tony Eason though. Hey Idiot, appreciate the thread!
