A Dallas Cowboys Christmas

It was two days before Christmas, I was alone at my place

With no chance for Saints’ fans to get all up in my face

As I made plans to support my team ‘cause I care

I was hopeful the Cowboys did all they could to prepare

And as I hoped the defense would follow their reads

I also had hope the stars on this team would step up and lead

As I planned to wear my favorite players jersey

I was sure they would give me no reason to worry

As the kickoff ensued, I heard such a clatter

I looked closely at my screen to see what was the matter

The Saints returner had taken off in a flash

Until the Cowboys tacklers arrived with a crash

Was the best play of the Cowboys finished and done?

Or was this a sign of good things to come?

On the Saints first down a big play I did fear

Until Anthony Spencer knocked Drew Brees on his rear

With the Cowboys defense playing so good and so quick

I was sure the Saints fans were feeling quite sick

I was sure I had never seen the Cowboys play quite this fast

These no name defenders were making their chance last

Now Ernie Sims, Alex Albright, Michael Coe and Sterling Moore

Were showing us everything we were watching them for

Because these players were giving it their all

I started to feel sure that these Saints would soon fall

Then when the Cowboys on offense let the ball fly

I knew they were going to do more than just try

When DeMarco Murray was handed the ball he flew

And just like that in a flash I knew

I knew what I perceived as the truth

This Cowboys offense would blow off the roof

I was amazed at what I had found

These Cowboys had really turned their season around

Even if the Saints kept it close I had reason to root

Because we can always count on Dan Bailey’s foot

It seems that when it has come down to that

Bailey wins the game by putting the team on his back

The Cowboys would give us a reason to be merry

And the Saints just didn’t seem all that scary

So away with the victory the Cowboys did go

With me leading the chorus of “yeah, I told you so”

Early in the season the fans had a beef

But late season heroics had led to relief

They stunk so bad you could say they were smelly

Then we began to see what they could be, really

When the players quit thinking so much about self

The talent they possess becomes an abundance of wealth

When they play as a team on the same page instead

Their opponent’s hopes are soon left for dead

With their commitment to do what works

They showed the world they are not just overpaid jerks

So in the NFL, as in any endeavor, it goes

Dedication and commitment to hard work shows

I’m sure at some point criticism caused the players to bristle

I glad they responded with additional hustle

So in the end, as day turned to night

I was happy with the win as I said Merry Christmas and good night!
