One love we can all agree on this Valentine’s Day is our shared admiration for the Dallas Cowboys. From the shine off their silver helmets to Roger The Dodger to Crazy Ray – We all have our reasons to love this team. In the spirit of today’s romantic holiday, I’ve compiled my top ten list of reasons why we all love the Dallas Cowboys.

10. The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders

Originally started as a group of male and female high school students in 1960, known as the CowBelles & Beaux, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders evolved into the all-female squad we all know today in the early 1970′s. The brainchild of former Cowboys general manager Tex Schramm as a way to boost attendance, the cheerleaders quickly became a national sensation. The most popular cheerleading squad in the world soon began making several television appearances and even their own movie in 1979. Their images soon began popping up on calendars, hats, t-shirts and other merchandise. And on top of entertaining home crowds during games, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders travel the world making appearances, especially for our troops via the USO. Their presences on the sidelines is now as much of a tradition as the star on the helmet for Cowboy fans.

    The Star says it all for me. The symbol (design and colors) in itself encompasses everything that is the true soul of the Dallas Cowboys. Every great person / thing that made us smile shines inside that eternal star.

    Great article. I agree with every one of the ten. I’ve been a Cowboys fan for nearly all my life, and I wouldn’t trade cheering for the Boys for anything! I do miss the days of Landry & Staubach, Dorsett & Pearson, White & Martin …. I could go on and on. Looking forward to the return of the glory days, hopefully sometime soon! But, good or bad, it’ll always be Go Cowboys!
