New York Journalists Are Horny Over Giants-Cowboys Game

I get Google alerts anytime Tony Romo or the Dallas Cowboys are mentioned in a news article. Little did I know my e-mail inbox would be flushed with poop from the New York media in the form of “journalism.” Even TMZ.com, the world-renowned tabloid gorillas, are joining in on the Tony Romo-Jessica Simpson fest. But the New York media is taking the cake. Eleven of the 13 stories on this glorified love affair came out of New York today. As if they don’t have anything better to do.

I’m not surprised, though. The New York Football Giants don’t have a prayer to win this game, but the New Yorkers who love all things Blue and Red will do all they can to make it seem like there’s hope. The media is helping in that humorous goal. For example, let’s take the New York Post, known for shoddy journalism. In this article, it seems the Giants fans actually have more sense than the newspaper, which is trying to draw more controversy out of the love affair.

So, is Jessica a jinx?

“That’s ridiculous. She has no impact over this game,” said Giants fan Peter Montella, 49, of Northport, LI. “But if she is bad luck, I hope she’s there.”

Added Manhattan’s Denise Gaffney, 25, “The Giants are gonna need all the help they can get down in Dallas, so I hope she is there and Tony Romo throws a bunch of interceptions.”

Online Sportsbook.com has a line on whether Simpson will attend. Yesterday, bettors thinking she’ll be at Texas Stadium come Sunday, could get a 1-to-1 wager, but those believing she will stay away had to lay out $140 to win $100.

Wow. That was some genius who wrote that piece. Check out the lead!

Giants fans are hoping for a romantic interception – and that Tony Romo’s bad-luck-charm gal pal, Jessica Simpson, will show up in person Sunday to cheer on her Cowboy.

Gal pal? That’s worse than my fuzzberry neoligism.

Then there’s the New York Daily News and columnist Gary Myers. The headline in big bold letters: “Dallas moans as Tony Romo vacations in Cancun with Jessica Simpson.”

Myers writes: “Big D right now stands for Big Distraction, which is great news for the Giants. ”

What an idiot. Cowboys safety Keith Davis was on Sirius Radio this afternoon and he said he didn’t even know Romo and Jason Witten were in Mexico. He said the team is focused and no one is reading the media reports or the drama. Of course they aren’t! Coach Wade Phillips didn’t even know Romo was in Mexico!

But this media blitz is not the real shocker. Hardly anyone is picking the Cowboys to win, and those who do say it with hesitancy in their voice. Un-effing-believable. The Cowboys are 13-3, folks! How the hell can the Cowboys come into the playoffs as underdogs against a team they dominated twice this year? Because Tony Romo went to Mexico to relax? Because the team didn’t look so spectacular in the final four meaningless games? Once the Cowboys beat Green Bay, the Cowboys made the playoffs.

Myers is another one of the homers picking the Giants.

So, I’m picking the Giants to beat the Cowboys, 28-24, Sunday at Texas Stadium in the two teams’ first-ever postseason meeting and advance to the NFC Championship Game. The Giants have momentum and have won eight straight on the road since losing the season opener in Dallas. The Cowboys all but shut it down the last four weeks, needing a last-minute drive to beat the Lions, getting embarrassed at home by the Eagles, struggling to beat the Panthers and then showing no life in losing the final game to the Redskins. In that game Romo played into the third quarter despite a bruised right thumb that he suffered in the Philly game.

Maybe the Cowboys should be reading this drivel. Maybe these articles and the ESPN anti-Cowboy rhetoric should be posted on the clipboards and bulletin boards. The New York media’s penchant to pick at this old-news love affair just shows that the Giants have a lot to worry about. So, go ahead and crown their asses! Crown them! I am tired of hearing about how the Cowboys limped into the playoffs, and how Tony Romo is making babies with a hot blond, and how Romo was in Mexico, and how Eli Manning played a game without throwing an interception, and how great he is now because he completed that feat. ENOUGH!!! LET’S PLAY THE GAME!!!!!!!!
