To which the responses, including essays from Eagles and Giants bloggers, have been varied and nasty. (Something about Cowboys fans being "soulless" and wanting "nothing more than to spoil the home team's party," whatever that means.) At least WaPo sports writer Leonard Shapiro just comes off as jealous.
