If you're not on the Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl bandwagon yet, that's OK. It's good to be cynical. Besides, by the time this goes to press, the 'Boys could have gone to hell in a handbasket. I doubt it, but it could happen. Either way, the Cowboys/Patriots game is one that will truly test their mettle: a battle between pretty boys (all-American Tony Romo versus wanton baby-daddy Tom Brady); a classic good guy/bad guy match up (soft-spoken Mr. Fix-It Wade Phillips versus evil cheater Bill Belichick); and a damn-near perfect offensive line (that'd be the Patriots, sorry) versus an occasionally vulnerable defense. The winner of this battle will be bloodied, bruised and, seriously, a step closer to the Super Bowl. You will in no way want to miss this epic battle. Beg, borrow, steal or eBay your way to this game, or else load up on Miller Lite and host one hell of an early Super Bowl party. God knows I'll be in front of the television, still trying to compose that perfect love letter to Terrell Owens, as I watch him make another catch and flash those pearly whites with unfettered glee. Sigh. Kickoff is at 3:15 p.m. at Texas Stadium (2401 E. Airport Freeway) in Irving. Visit ticketmaster.com for information about available tickets (ha!), fan sales or ticket auctions.
