The Thunder's performance reminiscent of yesterday's Mavs.
The Cowboys have a history with both Super Bowl teams, the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers. Even after all these years some of the memories sting. But which one more than the other? Is it Jerry Kramer's block in The Ice Bowl? (Grab a hanky and go to the 8:45 mark.)
Whether you're at the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End: *You heard it here first back in October as a sorta be-on-the-lookout rumor. Now it's more solid, as in, Michael Irvin's days on 103.3 FM ESPN are numbered. Radio industry sources keep telling me h ... 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 >>

In retrospect, Ole Miss and Texas Tech are merely above-average college football teams. Their little clash in Dallas last week, however, was called by two of this area's icons of announcing. Though he's looked better, it was good to see Pat Summerall working the game on TV. And on radio - with his ... More >>
Vern Lundquist: " ... caught! ... Touchdown!! ... DROPPED!!!" With Cowboys-Steelers always comes Jackie Smith.We'll never forget. Are we ready to forgive? - Richie Whitt
Just which local players have earned the right to be eternally identified with their uniform numbers?
Um, Terrell Owens, we found at least one "original 81" who ain't you, pal. Response to last week’s homage to Blackie Sherrod was, well, yummier than a plate of scratch biscuits and red-eye gravy. So, yes, in fact, I’ll make this a weekly staple. Riddle me this: Buffalo’s Terrence McGee fields ... More >>
Tony Romo makes a short, sweet journey from anonymous backup to A-list celebrity
Tony Romo's blessing comes disguised as a blunder
Yeah, yeah. Tony Romo muffed the field-goal hold. Whatever. The Seahawks woulda scored again anyway. And Romo still gets to wake up next to Carrie Underwood. You? An empty can of Coors Lite. Just know that it's going to get worse before it gets better: Romo: Built in a day, destroyed in a snap. Hear ... More >>
Benny Barnes was no Dallas Cowboys spare. He played 11 years with the team--from 1972 through the 1982 season, for a total of 139 games--as a defensive back, and he was the subject of a controversial call involving a Terry Bradshaw pass to Lynn Swann in Super Bowl XIII in 1979. (Ya know, the game du ... More >>
Fort Worth-based FUNimation is handling Afro Samurai, which, oddly, was my nickname in Hebrew school. The 2006 Asian Film Festival of Dallas kicks off at noon today with screenings at the Magnolia Theater in the West Village; the fest runs through next Thursday and, like I said in the paper version ...
