I'm not sure what it means to be a "real fan" of the Cowboys. Does this mean painting your face while attending a game? Knowing the stats of every player for the last two decades? That all seems like a lot of unnecessary memory space I could be using for, oh, let's see, real life. I just like to watch the games and root for them to win. If it needs to be anymore than that, I can find out from Frank Luksa, author of Cowboys Essential: Everything You Need to Know to Be a Real Fan. He’ll be signing and discussing his book at Barnes & Noble, 616 Preston Royal Shopping Center, 7 p.m. Tuesday. Call 214-363-0924.
Tue., Sept. 19, 7 p.m.
