Coulda Been Worse
Yeah, Your Dallas Cowboys suffered a gut-wrenching loss to the Washington Redskins on Sunday. But look on the bright side: You could've drowned your sorrows in 11 pitchers of beer, hopped behind the wheel, sideswiped a guardrail and been issued a DUI prosecuted by none other than the kin of Redskins kicker Nick Novak.
Turns out Novak, whose 47-yard field goal broke Dallas' heart, has a younger brother, Andrew, working as a misdemeanor prosecutor for the Dallas County District Attorney's Office. I don't think Andrew is a member of the Redskins' lame-ass marching band, but curiously his picture is nowhere to be found on the DCDA's Web site. Hmmm. --Richie Whitt
