I have learned to put things in perspective so my world no longer revolves around the Cowboys.
This is probably me as well, except my earliest memory of them was Super Bowl 10 in January 1976. My Dad was rooting for them in a house filled with Steeler fans. I liked the star on the helmet and hell, my Dad was rooting for them.
I tried not to care in week 2 at Seattle around the 4th quarter. I tried again with about 6 minutes left in the 3rd quarter of the Bears game. I keep coming back here during the week, after the games, whenever. I keep going back to the tv set Sunday after Sunday. It's a lost cause to try and be disinterested for me.
Somehow, with 2 young daughters and a bunch of nieces and nephews, I'm still able to squeeze in 3 hours to watch this team every week, or at least DVR it and watch it late on Sunday. At 42 years old, I doubt being a supporter of this team will change much. Its in the blood now and there is no turning back.
