    OK, mens, I am done crying about this year.

    And, yeth, there are lots of power rankings out there.

    But this is a first for me: agreeing with a power ranking re the Dallas Cowboys, the most glamorous team in the universe.
    Most of the time, whatever power ranking the Boys are assigned, I just move them 2 or 3 spots up to make up for the anti-Cowboys bias "out there."

    This one seems (at least pertaining to the Cowboys) seem accurate: No. 15

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/...s-week-12-where-does-every-team-stand/page/19

    It is so telling that we are roughly ranking near the middle of the NFL.
    We are neither too strong nor too weak. We are afterthoughts. We are middlins in a sea of high achiefers and weaklings from 3rd-rate cities.

    It hath come to this, where old Gimme agrees with a power ranking.
    Oh, great conditioning trainer in the sky, we deserve it (15) this year.

    Oddly enough, our tears are commensurate with the money that Jerra keeps making with this .500 team.

    I would not have even ranked them at 15...! Maybe around 20 -23.

    Yea, that is what I was thinking.

    15 is laughable for a team that gives up 700 yards a game and 40 first downs and converts 0 3rd downs..................add to that a coaching staff that is clueless..........................Maybe mid 20s at best.

    I get you. Still, No. 15 tells our current story. Stuck in mediocrity.

    When I laugh it is a hollow laugh. When I cry it is tears of a clown.

    Bro...!

    You are a clown rather you laugh of cry. Sometimes a funny clown, sometime just downright a clown! How Ms. Busty puts up with you, I have no clue, unless she is a clownettt.

    a triangular number, hexagonal number, pentatope number and the 4th Bell number;
    the double factorial of 5;
    a composite number with proper divisors 1, 3, and 5;
    the magic constant of the unique order-3 normal magic square;
    a repdigit in binary;
    the atomic number of phosphorus;
    the day of the Hebrew month of Nisan when Passover begins;
    the first point gained in a game of tennis;
    the number of players in a rugby team;
    the number on the back of a fullback’s jersey in rugby;
    the age of eligibility in NZ to learn to drive;

    Ms. Busty beliefs in me. She is an enabler of my football theories and likes it when my Lone Star Card is reloaded. We roll like bonnie and Claude and half a good time.
    My favorite clown is Joe Pesci but he get mad sometimes.

    I don't know what a Lone Star card is? Do they have those down in Farmers Ranch? What does that card do? Is is some kind of food stamp card?
