I was flattered when the North Texas Super Bowl XLV Host Committee approached me late in 2009 to help construct and singularly author its prodigious Century in the Making project. What started with 250 of the greatest moments in Texas football history -- high school, college and pro -- ... More >>
Still trying to wrap my tiny, admittedly perverted sports brain around the Dallas Stars without Mike Modano. Or, even weirder, Modano in another team's sweater. He is now - and perhaps forever - undoubtedbly, undeniably, unequivocally the face of the franchise. Right? Unless, of course, ... More >>
I grew up with Drew Pearson, covered Michael Irvin and have the highest hopes for Dez Bryant. But should the Cowboys' rookie receiver from Oklahoma State be allowed to wear the sacred No. 88? The Cowboys revere uniform numbers, but they don't retire them. Should they? You don't see No. 8 or ... More >>
Photos by Sam MertenAn eclectic mix of folks packed the Bill and Margot Winspear Opera House last night as a jaw-dropping group of former Dallas Cowboys players reminisced during the taping of Glory Days, a television pilot scheduled to debut January 30 on KTVT-Channel 11 prior to finding a n ...

No kidding. The AT&T Performing Arts Center's Jill Magnuson just sent word that on January 5 at 7:30 p.m., Roger Staubach, Mike Ditka, Bob Lilly, Randy White, Drew Pearson, and Tony Dorsett will take the stage at the Bill and Margot Winspear Opera House for the taping of a television pilot ca ...

TCU? And this guy? In the BCS? Yep.Don't look now, but there's finally a legit BCS buster. And, even more surprising, the team is right here in our own backyard. Are you ready for TCU in the BCS? For years Gary Patterson's Horned Frogs have been a power, but just not quite strong ... More >>
No. 12 in your football program ... No. 12 on our fantasy roster.When I say No. 22, who comes to mind? Do you immediately think of the Dallas Cowboys' all-time best runner? Or their all-time best rusher? Or perhaps instead the second-leading all-time scorer in the history of the Dallas Mav ... More >>
At least we can all agree on No. 1. Right?From time to time I've been known to construct a Top 10 list. But this one, I've got to tear apart. You're telling me there's a list of the Top 10 All-Time greatest Dallas Cowboys and Jerry Jones isn't on it? Altogether now: Bull. Shit. If NF ... More >>
Psst, hey buddy. Can I interest you in this Terrell Owens fake Cowboys' locker room name plate sticker affixed to my wall? Merrily I don't need thee anymore. What I will cling onto - perhaps forever - are artifacts I rescued from my closet from Cowboys who wouldn't look right in a ... More >>
Damn, maybe Jerry Jones took Channel 8's poll to heart. Either that, or the Cowboys owner is suffering from spasms of lucidity and humility. Whatever, less than 12 hours after cutting Terrell Owens, the Cowboys have this morning released safety Roy Williams. Weird, huh? The Cowboys ... More >>
Steelers 27, Cardinals 23: Best Super Bowl ever? Santonio Holmes' tip-toe TD: Best Super Bowl catch ever? The Boss: Best Super Bowl halftime show ever? Better late than never, I've got XLIII thoughts about Super Bowl 43: 43. Gotta make it snappy. My free Grand Slam at Denny's is calling. 4 ... More >>
Lowlights from the final night at Texas Stadium: *I know the Buccaneers and Eagles lost yesterday and there's still hope for the Cowboys making the playoffs. But what happened Saturday night was inexcusable. *Safety Ken Hamlin, who played in the Pro Bowl last January, was unblocked and had bot ... More >>
Just which local players have earned the right to be eternally identified with their uniform numbers?
Squint real hard and see the similarities. At long last, the ’70s are back. Women are again wearing Halston. Television viewers are glued to CBS’ hit Swingtown. Two movies founded on the old decade’s staples of Star Wars and ABBA – The Clone Wars and Mamma Mia – were among last week ... More >>
George P. Bush, throwing McCain a BBQ fund-raiser in Dallas next week John McCain hasn't allowed media into his fund-raisers, insisting he wants to protect his donors' privacy -- though, more likely, he also wants to protect John McCain's privacy. Barack Obama has also raised dough in private, but e ... More >>
America's Team wants your dirty, sexy money. Lots of it.
I won't pretend to know whether this is The Real Deal, but an eBay'er with much positive feedback is selling -- for the low, low price of $2,000, so far -- what he says is a football signed by the entirety of the 1967 Dallas Cowboys roster. Which means, yes, Bob Lilly, Don Meredith, Bob Hayes, Hall ... More >>
Despite Dallas' 5-1 start, the Phillips 3-4 has been stupefying
I didn't come here today to lament the transformation of my March Madness bracket into toilet paper, to publicly apologize to anyone I might have maimed with a well-intended string of beads during Saturday's St. Paddy's Parade or to rehash Monday night's 16-10 loss by the Dallas Observer co-ed softb ...

Look toward Doomsday with excitement
With Terrell Owens, which comes first--the Super Bowl ring or the explosion?
Dallas attorney Darrell Jordan wants to cover the Cotton Bowl--anyone got $150 million to spare?
Eighteen months ago, the former Cowboys hero was drinking and drugging his way to disaster. Now he's clean, sober, and planning to stay that way.
