Cowboys epiphany

Having followed the Dallas Cowboys most of my life, I had an epiphany last weekend.

Until then, I refused to believe that a team — which looks as talented as any at the start of every season, has the best uniforms, the best cheerleaders, the hands-down best stadium and a seemingly endless supply of cash from the owner — could still perform so poorly.

And then it hit me. The Cowboys are to pro football what Anna Kournikova is to pro tennis. Both are beautiful, known on the international stage, admired by all and contribute to many worthwhile charities, but neither can win a championship when opportunity presents itself.

Kournikova is legendary for her winless streak in professional tennis, yet she remains at the top of the brand-name game. Same for the Cowboys. Best brand in the world.

When will we just accept who they are. They’re more focused on who they are rather than what they are.

I have no ill will toward Jerry and the ’Boys. I wish them the best, but if I’m honest, Anna Kournikova is way more fun to watch lose.
