Cowboys About to Get Farked Over
This morning, I sort of casually mentioned that Your Dallas Cowboys had come up with one of the worst ideas in the history of goodbyes: allowing fans to choose the last song ever played over the Texas Stadium public address system following the Ravens game. That's the ballot pictured above -- and, yes, those are the actual official choices. Well, as has been pointed out to me repeatedly this morning, the New York Mets did something similar for the final Opening Day game ever played at Shea Stadium earlier this year, only to get Rickrolled in the process. Which is why teams should never, ever allow for the write-in vote for anything. Ever. Hence, this Farking movement -- though, really, didn't Rick Astley's appearance at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade kind of put an end to this? --Robert Wilonsky
