The Aftermath Of The Showdown!

Was your popcorn ready for the showdown? Did you find yourself making sure all work was done by 5.. so you could get home, put your jersey on¬†and get comfy on the¬†couch? Did you make it to your friends house, or local sports bar by¬†kick off?¬†Where do I start?? Cowboys are¬†11-1.. They clinch a playoff spot tonight.. Can win the division with a Giants loss this weekend.. Sounds pretty good right? While driving home tonight, I was listening to the post game show on a local sports talk station here in Dallas.. The first caller of the night was a Packers fan.. and I knew this question would be coming.. “If Brett Favre had not gotten hurt do you think the Cowboys still would have won?” Who didn’t see this one coming.. Yes the Cowboys would have still won this game.. Key reason.. prior to Favres leaving this game he¬†had¬†5 completions for 64 yards,¬†and 2 interceptions.. that right there would lead me to believe the following..

A. Favre was seeing pressure that he is not used to seeing, and he was not allowed to pick our defense apart..

B. Our secondary finally showed up to play!!

Second caller of the night.. obviously another Packer fan.. “The refs gave the Cowboys the game, because they wanted America’s Poster boy “Romo” to continue his cinderella story “Are you f**king kidding me”? I might buy that if Romo had another retarded attack like he had in Buffalo.. but come on, are you serious? 19/30 309yrds 4 TD 1 interception.. and keep in mind the interception¬†was not¬†his fault.. Eventually people are going to have to face facts.. Tony Romo is for real! I don’t really see why that is so hard for people to believe.. Yes he was undrafted, yes he sat on the bench for 4 years.. I guess everyone seems to forget the fact that Tom Brady was the¬†33rd¬†pick in the 6th round of the 2000 draft.. Is it that hard to believe that Romo is for real?

Now I know with these big games comes the really stupid questions and comments.. Packer fans.. no disrespect.. but I truly believe, simply put.. The Packers finally ran up against a team that made them look average.. the Cowboys exposed soft spots in the defense.. and got pressure on Favre.. Not to say our defense did a stellar job in the 2nd half.. because honestly.. I thought this game was over at half time.. especially with Aaron Rogers at the helm.. The Cowboys defense started to scare me down the stretch..Before I get the irate email for an angry cheesehead. I understand two of your key secondary players were out.. might have made a difference in the outcome, but hey.. we could bring up the fact that we are playing without Glenn.. When it all boils down to it.. This Cowboys team is for real.. and I guess the only way they will get the respect they have EARNED and deserve.. were just going to have to make a trip to Arizona.. and bring us back a trophy!

Last but not least.. As a Cowboys fan.. the pass interference call late in the 4th quarter really could have gone either way.. Romo aired it out on 1st and 1o.. Worst case scenario.. we don’t get the call, and its 2nd down and 10.. roughly about 10-15 yards more.. were in field goal range.. and we win by 6..

Cowboys/Packers Recap

Taylor Was Targeted?

Antrel Rolle¬†thinks his childhood friend Sean Taylor’s¬†shooting was not a burglary gone wrong.. he thinks he was targeted by a group Taylor had parted ways from.. Rolle later adds that while Taylor was home in Miami.. he lived his life in fear.. I guess the thing I wonder about.. Why would you continue to live, and raise a family in an¬†environment your scared in? Why not move? Burglary gone wrong, or murder.. its still a tragic loss..

Taylor Was Targeted

Cheese Vs BBQ

Seems the mayor of Green Bay, James J. Schmitt and the mayor of Dallas, Tom Leppert have a friendly bet on the game tomorrow..

If Dallas wins.. Schmitt will be sending Leppert 10 pounds of cheese.. and a gift basket of football shaped summer sausage..

If Green Bay wins.. Leppert will be sending Schmitt some good ole Texas BBQ and sweet tea!

Atleast no one is loosing any hair in the bet!

Thank You All

When I started Ick’s Corner back in August.. I didn’t know if it would be like my first attempt at a blog.. a COMPLETE FAILURE, atleast in my eyes..not¬†very many readers.. So when my mother in law suggested I move my blog to wordpress.. I was kinda skeptical.. ¬†Now I admit I keep track of the¬†hit stats on a daily basis.. I tend to get alittle excited when I see my daily hits take off.. I’m like a kid at Christmas.. I just wanted to thank everyone that stops by whether it be once a day, week, or month.. it means alot to me.. Its nice to know that people like what we are doing here at the corner! You guys keep stopping by, and we will keep writing!!

Tom Hicks does it again…

As meatloaf says, 2 out of 3 aint bad… well I guess it is bad if now 2 fan bases out of your 3 teams hate your cheapskate ass.

Today, thousands of Liverpool fans are taking to the streets actually protesting Tom Hick’s ownership… IT DIDN’T EVEN TAKE HIM 1 SEASON TO PISS OFF THE FAN BASE…

To any futbol fans out there, I’m sorry to say you’re now getting to meet Bill Wirtz version 2.0… one of the greatest futbol teams ever is now gonna be a joke…

did i mention the rangers lost out on the tori hunter lotto?
