Given the fact that the Dallas Cowboys are commonly referred to as America’s Team, it’s no surprise that they have many fans — some of them famous. Celebrities like Shaquille O’Neal, Kelly Clarkson, Bryce Harper, Denzel Washington, and Jamie Foxx are all fans of the Cowboys.
A Los Angeles local, Foxx decided to make the short trip to Oxnard to see his team during training camp. The award-winning singer and actor watched practice and took the time to speak to reporters afterward.
Unlike most Cowboys fans, the Terrell, TX, native seems to be very confident in the Cowboys’ chances this year. Even though the team’s stock continues to fall in power rankings, the celebrity is unfazed. Here’s why:
"“This year, we’re really excited. We were there when we didn’t get it done against the 49ers… This year, I saw Dak at a restaurant. He’s slim, jawline, everything looked good so we got high hopes this year because I think, as I talked to Micah Parsons, he said the game has slowed down for him now. When he started he said things were moving fast. He says that he has a different look in his eye.”"
I mean I can’t totally say that 45-second explanation has sold me that the Cowboys have any chance of winning a Super Bowl this year, but I do appreciate the enthusiasm!
Jamie Foxx does Stephen A. Smith impression while visiting Cowboys training camp
The actor is well-known for his impressions, so of course, he had to break out his Stephen A. Smith one at camp (one he’s done before). The two are friends, but Foxx loves to banter with the famed Cowboys hater. Foxx said Stephen A. should get ready for him after talking trash.
Here’s the Academy Award-winning actor’s impression:
He continued to hype up fans by taking a selfie video for the social media team. He bragged that he’s always been a Cowboys fan and joked that the team hired him as the coach for all after-parties.
Foxx also added that being a Dallas fan in LA isn’t always easy:
"“It’s tough living in L.A. when you’re a Cowboys fan. It’s tough living anywhere when you’re a Cowboys fan. A lot of times people say our name wrong. They say Dallas Cowboys, I say, America’s Team. It’s America’s Team.”"
“This year, we get it done. Everybody. Bow down,” Foxx said.
You already know Stephen A. Smith is going to find a way to make fun of this in a future “First Take” segment. There’s plenty to be excited about for 2022, but let’s not assume a trophy is coming back to Dallas before the preseason even starts.
