How 'Bout Them Cowboys!

Sports-Night Monday: Too bad, Yankees... And, How 'bout them Cowboys!

I was trying to be loyal to my new town, hoping for a Yankees win in the playoffs over the Indians. (I was looking forward to wearing a "Boston Sux" shirt.)

And then while watching that on TV, kept switching over to the Cowboys/Bills game...

WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHGHGHGHGHGGHGH! Seriously, the last 20 seconds??!!!!!!!! Loooooooooooooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeee da Boys! Stuff like that reminds me I'm a Texan! ;p

I stumbled upon your blog before you moved to your new adopted state. I love NYC, have many friends there, and visit often.

Used to love the Yankees when players like O'Neill and Knoblauch were playing. Now they change/trade players like they do underwear. Rightfully, they can do whatever they want, since they are the wealthiest team in the NBA.

I guess I was just mildly surprised that you had something positive to say about anything associated with Texas (based on your dislike of your life in Austin). Good to know.

Not meant to be negative, just an observation.

Ooops... not the "NBA"! :)

I do have a lot of positive memories of Texas. I was born there and spent 99% of my life there, so it'll always feel like home to me. And I'll probably retire there in 30 years.

I disliked my life in Austin because I was bored to death there after 25 years. It was a perfectly pleasant/Democratic liberal college town. With absolutely nothing going on. Exactly what I felt about San Francisco when I lived there for 2 years in the mid-90s. Both completely dead artistically, intellectually, etc., despite their fervent claims to the contrary. I finally figured that if I was constantly being nauseated by the boosterism, I'd better get myself to NYC, where no one needed to argue the city's fine points! (Only to find out just recently: Mayor Bloomberg is indeed starting a campaign to sell the city to visitors. Please!)

Just got a funny comment, re Neil's attempt at football/baseball analysis: "Is this really Neil who is writing these posts... quoting MLB salary figures, citing Tony Romo stats from Monday Night Football, and shelling out opinions on Joe Torre and George Steinbrenner???"

And this from Neil's own boyfriend! PJ knows his boy! ha-ha! Neil, better stick to... oh, "Madonna-analysis"!
