The King and I
I'd like to call out Sports Illustrated's Peter King for turning tail on your Dallas Cowboys.
Way I remember it, once upon a time King picked the Cowboys to make it to this season's Super Bowl. (Of course, come to think of it, he always picks Dallas, right?) But in this week's column he leaps from the Cowboys' careening bandwagon, surmising that last week's gut-check win over the Buccaneers only postpones the inevitable disappointment of a season headed toward the ditch.
I'd like to call out King. But, alas, I can't. If I did, I'd also have to call out myself. Because our rocky roads to enlightenment -- high expectations crashing into harsh reality -- sound very familiar.
Probably, sadly, a lot like yours. – Richie Whitt
