When I first became a fan of the sport in 85(when I was 13). Lived in Dallas at the time.
Frankly-haven't exactly been a life-long Dallas fan. When they started losing-jumped on the Skins band-wagon 'cuz Joe Gibbs was the Forrest Gump of the NFL at the time. But when the Skins started sliding, jumped right back on the Boys' band-wagon when they started their big Super Bowl runs.
However-when the Boys' run became over, onto "The Greatest Show on Turf"(Rams). Then when the Pats came along, couldn't help rooting for them.
But when Parcells decided to take on the Boys as a new challenege, I just HAD to come back onto this band-wagon. Been a die-hard since.
