Getting kinda used to this, aren't we? Pacman's in limbo. Newman's hurt. T.O.'s moody. Wade Phillips is edgy. For a 4-1 team, it's difficult to find the Dallas Cowboys' positives: Ah-hah! There's one: Couple three years ago I was on the couch watching a Cowboys’ game with my brother. H ... 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 >>

With Terrell Owens, which comes first--the Super Bowl ring or the explosion?
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.
