    Why Memphis May Fire is Touring Right Before the New Album Comes Out

    Replacing a lead singer is no easy feat. Just ask Matty Mullins. Born and raised outside of Seattle, Washington, Mullins became the second frontman for Dallas' own Memphis May Fire back in 2008. Since then, the band has continued to expand its fan base while maturing and incorporating new themes int ... More >>

    "Teen Mystifier" John Tucker "Correctly" "Predicted" Super Bowl Score and MVP

    Any creature can predict the winner of the Super Bowl. Those who have correctly done so include: an ape, a porcupine, a horde of puppies, a manatee, a seal, a panda, an octopus and a bunny. Add to that list the elusive "teen mystifier," a 17-year-old Dallas magician named John Tucker. Not only did ... More >>

    The 11 Best Concerts in Dallas This Week: December 19 to 25

    Last week on Fox News, anchor Megyn Kelly took it upon herself to advise the children of America that Santa is in fact Caucasian. Tasteless? Yes. Unnecessary? Absolutely. Racist? Of course.

    The Terrifying Pre-Super Bowl Concussion That Scared the Hell Out of Troy Aikman

    Troy Aikman's concussion in the third quarter of the 1994 NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers is now just a footnote on the team's march to a second consecutive Super Bowl victory, which itself gets lost in telling of the mid-'90s golden age of America's Team. Aikman's injury gets ... More >>

    This weekend, the NFC and AFC Championship rounds will pit such heavyweights as the Baltimore Ravens against the Peyton Mannings, The Green Bay Packers against the San Francisco 49ers, the Seattle Blinding Highlights against the Atlanta Falcons and a game I won't mention for obvious reasons.

    Flags, Sacks and Hats: How The Cowboys Conquered The Bucs

    A week after being thoroughly handled by the Seattle Seahawks, the Cowboys returned to Dallas to be thoroughly handled by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fortunately for Dallas, Tampa didn't have a running back near the caliber of Marshawn Lynch, and their punt coverage team couldn't resist going for Cow ... More >>

    Watch Cowboys Fan's Epic, Profanity-Filled Tirade Over Loss to Seahawks

    Yesterday, still irrationally giddy from the beatdown their Seahawks delivered on Sunday ( I for one blame the replacement refs for Felix Jones' fumble on the opening kickoff.

    Seahawks 27, Cowboys 7: Thoughts on a Depressing Trip to Seattle

    The Cowboys' 27-7 pasting at the hands of the Seahawks was about as brutal as the final score indicates. From the opening kickoff (literally!), Seattle simply played with a level of physicality that the Cowboys could not match. Every Dallas ball carrier was getting plowed, while Seahawks running b ...

    Did The Cowboys Remove Video of Illegal Contact at Practice? Was It Even Illegal? This Is Football, Right?

    Seriously, NFL? First you ban the clothesline, then you move kickoffs to within field goal range, and now you're handing out sanctions because people are trying too hard? Some background: The league's collective bargaining agreement bans "contact work" in spring practices. Specifically, there's no ... More >>
