Two years ago, I never dreamed I'd be more excited about the Cowboys than the Mavericks. But after the Mavs choked away two consecutive all-but-assured championships and the 'Boys replaced their decrepit quarterback with an exciting young gun, my sports compass pointed toward Texas Stadium. Typical fickle Dallas fan, sure, but with so many home teams and so little time, I feel no guilt. Thus, after the Cowboys' pathetic Rams loss, the compass points again at the American Airlines Center, where at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, the Mavericks welcome the Los Angeles Lakers. Check mavs.com for tickets, or tune to KTXA-Channel 21 or HDNet.
