Grew up in Northern Wisconsin,....came from a large family of Brothers. Me being the youngest. We fought like hell as brothers do,...did whatever we could to get on each others nerves.
The brother closest to me in age was a Steelers fan because the Steeler center grew up about a half an hour away from us " Mike Webster"
So,...when I was around ten years old the Steelers were playing the Cowboys for the FIRST time in the Super Bowl. I picked the other team just to get under my brothers skin. Fell in love with that team that very day,....been watching them ever since. VERY rabid fan,...to say the least.
I think what really made it STICK,...is back in those days the Cowboys were on tv up here almost every Sunday for the national game at 3:00,...then add in all the MNF games and Thanksgiving and you get to see them all the time.
Met a really nice group of people on the net back in the Gailey Days, small Cowboys message board that doesnt even exist anymore,....it was called DGMS " Dont Get Me Started" Eventually we all decided to get up a yearly game that a bunch of us go to most every year. My first game was in the Campo years when we still had QC at QB.
Have made it to seven yearly games so far. Last one was year before last,....MNF against the Deadskins....WE WON!!!!
Nothing beats the first year though,.....finally being at the old Texas stadium for the first time,....walking the field and throwing balls around during the stadium tour,...pictures taken on the midfield star,...in the lockeroom, ect ect. GREAT experience.
Reading some of these younger fans in here makes me feel OLD AS DIRT!
