    The Cowboys and Stars Had a Very Brief Twitter Feud, Then They Made Up

    Yesterday morning whoever handles the Dallas Cowboys official Twitter feed (probably Jerry Jones) let their feelings be known about the return of NHL hockey. They quickly deleted the Tweet, but not before it was captured by @D_LEED Whoops. This did not please the Stars, who responded in kind.

    Plano Has Become a Hockey Prospect Factory, Which Canadians Find Very Puzzling

    It's been over a decade since the Dallas Stars won the Stanley Cup and proved, six years after moving from Minnesota, that there was room for professional ice hockey even in football-obsessed, not-at-all-icy Texas. The team's popularity has flagged significantly in recent years, but a generation of ... More >>

    Baseball Goes Bonkers: The Top 5 Championship Celebrations in Sports

    ​Watched South Carolina win their second consecutive College World Series last night. Their celebration -- gloves and hats flying in a giant infield dog pile -- got me to thinking: Does baseball over-celebrate? Or, perhaps, do they do it just right? Think about the Mavs' reaction after a ... More >>
