C – Cowboy Stadium


My insecurity stems from my subject for the day. I am an insecure sports fan.  We have a new season coming up, a new defensive coordinator and a quarterback with a totally underserving new contract.  Why is this relevant to IWSG? When I feel good, I write good. When I feel bad, dissapointed and dejected, I write not good. The Cowboys are going to suck. That’s my hot sports IWSG opinion.

I hope Alex excuses my levity in this months IWSG post considering the pressure of the A to Z Challenge.

“No it doesn’t.” Brian tried the door, but it wouldn’t budge. He pushed the next door, again, locked.
It’s round, ominious.” Hailylee placed her hand on the structure. “I bet Darth Vader’s in there right now reading out thoughts.”
“Darth Vader controls thoughts, he doesn’t read them.”
Brian tried another door. Locked, “What’s so precious in there that every door has to be locked.”
“Here, let me try.” Hailee put her hand on the next door and pushed. It opened.
He grabbed her hand, “Come on.”
They walked into the structure. The energy flowed from the structure through him. It practically buzzed.
“You feel that?” Hailee said. “It’s alive. Just like the Death Star.”
Rolling his eyes, he pulled Hailyee down the corridor. Feeling the smooth metal walls along the way. They were cold to the touch. Strange considering it was 90 degrees outside.
The hall took a sudden left turn.  The light from outside did not.
“I think we should go back.”
“Let’s keep going.” Several feet more, there was a faint light visible in the distance. The comfort of the light encouraged them to walk faster.
Brian dared to take his eyes away from the light for a second to make sure Hailee saw what he saw. As they drew closer, they could feel the warmth. They entered a large open space, but didn’t notice, they were mesmerized. The light, warm and inviting, bobbed up and down in the middle of the space.
Hailee reached for it, but Brian pulled her hand back. “No, don’t touch it.”
“I have to, it’s so beautiful.”
“No must not touch,” It was hard for him to articulate because every ounce of his being wanted to touch it, too.
“Why?” Hailee whispered.
“Because, we haven’t earned the right.” As soon as the last syllable left his lips, the light exploded into a thousand lights. The blinding light knocked Brian and Hailee down.
The roof parted and sun shined brightly in there eyes.
“Yes,” a voice from above said. “You have not earned the right, but  you will, I promise, you will.” 
Brian and Hailee laid there, on the star, basking in the greatness that is Cowboy Stadium.

I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to visit 26 of 32 NFL stadiums, so I am fully qualified to declare Cowboy Stadium is the coolest stadium in the world, and not just because the local media refer to it as The Death Star.

I am done with sports and stadiums for awhile, at least until I get to V.  What’s your favorite stadium? Any insecurities to share? 

Giants Win, Giants Win

You may or may not know this about me, but I am a die hard Cowboys fan. Period. I have no conference allegiance. Everyone in the NFC East is my enemy and they are lucky to get the opportunity to play us every season twice. I have loved the Cowboys thru the 1 – 15 season, three Superbowls and now the 1 playoff game in I don’t know how many years and still I am Cowboy Blue, through and through.

So, when I tell you that I was cheering for the Giants on Sunday. There must be a good reason. I cheered for the Giants because, . . . I can’t stand Tom Brady.

No way in the world should Tom Brady get more rings then Troy and Emmitt. He is lucky to have the three that he has. It is just mind boggling that he has been as successful as he has. In my oppinion, he didn’t work hard enough for it. He got the position off of an injury and had great players around him. And still, no one talks about them, they just talk about Brady and his supermodel wife. It is annoying.

So, I was a Giants fan for 4 hours on Sunday and am very happy with the results. 21 – 17, in Indianapolis. Eli Manning – MVP.

Madonna, LMFAO, Nicki Minja, MIA did the half time show. It looked really cool.

One interesting tidbit that I think shows why some women should not be allowed to be NFL player wives. There is a report trending now about how some fan yelled to Giselle after the game, “Manning owns Brady.” in which she replied, “My husband can’t throw AND catch the f—king ball. Someone needs to make a catch.” Nice Giselle. Kick the team and cause tension in the locker room. Smooth.
