Look at poor Calabogie. Although still bitterly depressed about all those times Tom Landry's team knocked Bud Grant's boys out of the play-offs, he remains in firm support of his team.

1975, that's the year I started to dislike the Cowboys. I probably would have gotten over it if it hadn't been for all that "Americas Team" garbage their PR firm put out. During the heyday of the "Americas Team" media blitz, the Pittsburgh Steelers were the dominant team in the NFL and they were the epitomy of the working class hero. Unfortunately for them the Cowboys had a MUCH better PR firm and the help of the sports media.

I have been a Vikings fan for 44 years and plan to be one until the day I die. If there's an afterlife my plan is to put time on hold outside of Vikings games so I can watch 24 hours per day. I may just haunt the Cowboys a bit for fun though.
