Let’s Go Cowboys!
My promise to you: this will be the only time I ever discuss football on the blog.
That said, tonight on Monday Night Football the Dallas Cowboys play the Washington Redskins. You may not know this about me, but I’m a Cowboys fan. Mike always laughs at me when I say that because I don’t watch or care about football. But there’s something about Cowboys vs. Redskins that brings out the fan in me.
It’s not so much that I care about the Cowboys as it is that I have fond childhood memories surrounding Cowboys/Redskins games. My dad is a diehard Cowboys fan. Growing up, whenever these teams played our house was filled with sounds of football announcers, cheering, shouting, jumping and clapping. Tonight I’m reminded of many, many hours spent watching football with my dad (or playing in the floor while he watched football).
So here’s to the Cowboys.
Here’s to Monday Night Football.
Here’s to making your children watch stuff they don’t get because someday they’ll appreciate the memories and the time spent together.
