New Orleans Was the Perfect Place for the Cowboys to Lose

As a Cowboys fan, I should be steaming mad and outraged at the teams performance against the New Orleans Saints last Sunday. However, it saddens me to confess that I’m not. I wanted the Cowboys to win, I always expect them to win and I always believe that they will find a way to win. They didn’t. They lost ugly.

I should be calling for defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin’s head on a platter or blaming linebacker Sean Lee for being injured again. Yet, I won’t. At least not this time because I was in New Orleans and I drank Tito’s vodka. November 8th, November 9th and 10th and 11th, I was intoxicated. I drank all of those days. I drank. In excess. On the night of the game, I was drunk. I’m drunk now. I’m drunk right now. But I’m not an alcoholic. I’m a die-hard Cowboys fanatic.

I remember it all began with a phone call. An invitation from my good friend and fellow Cowboy Nation member, Tim Bradley of Jacksonville, FL and his brother Chris from Atlanta, GA. They planned a trip to New Orleans, LA that happened to fall on Cowboys weekend. Pretty soon, two people turned into a group of 15 Cowboy fans flying and driving into the French Quarter from various parts of the nation. Friday morning, I tossed my emergency duffle bag filled with undergarments, jeans and Cowboy jerseys into the trunk and hit the road for 550 miles.

I have to immediately say thank you to the officer that shall remain nameless, but gave me a warning ticket. You were absolutely correct. Getting there safely is more important than getting there first and it’s okay for people to pass me. Also, the usage of cruise control provided me with AMAZING gas mileage.

    There is no perfect place to lose. What’s the matter with you?

      Did you read the article?

        I did. I don’t suppose you have power over time and space to give me 5 minutes of my life back, do you?

    Why was this lame article approved for publication? Why did I bother reading this? Why on earth would the editors (much less the author) think I, or anyone else, would care about how this bozo spent his Sunday? Who cares? And your observations about the team are equally as useless as your pointless story about how you got to the game.

    Seriously, how does this guy have a job? Is he paid for writing this? Goodness I hope not.

    I read this article, and was completely stunned that it was actually published. Then I read drunk, and it was even worse. The only thing I can compare this to was Jerry’s embarrassing comments about “moral victories” after losing. I got so drunk, I woke up my 3 & 6 year old daughter’s to read this article. And all they got out of it was, what’s the pilipines & they noticd tthe word Cowboys, my favorite football teams name was on my coffee mug I was using at the moment.
    Now, while I must admit, the me getting drunk part was not true. But my daughter’s part was absolutely true.
