It's Christmas Day in 1989, you are drowning your sorrows in eggnog after you watched your beloved Cowboys lose to the Packers the day before to finish the season with only 1 win. There is a strange looking gift wrapped in red paper under the tree for you from someone who just goes by the initial "D". You open the gift which is seemingly empty.......pause for effect...........after a minute or two, you hear a voice call out your name. You look around the room and notice that your annoying relatives do not seem to notice this strange voice calling your name. You take another swig of eggnog and say "Yes?". The voice tells you that it has a special gift for you and all you need to do is answer yes or no to accept the gift. You take another long swig of eggnog and say "ummmm ok" The voice then gives you this offer - As a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, I will give you the gift of 3 Super Bowl victories in the next 6 years. Your heart starts to race, and before you yell yes as loud as you can, the voice says "wait!, there is a catch. The Cowboys will win 3 Super Bowls within the next 6 years, but in return, they will endure a stretch of mediocre football, very few playoff appearances, and even fewer playoff wins. Your team will frustrate you to no end, and may even cause you to question your faith in the Cowboys. You will not know how long this mediocre stretch will last, it could be 5 years, it could be 20 years, maybe the rest of your life" You take the deal............ It's now December 29th, 2013. You just watched your Cowboys lose badly to the Eagles on the last game of the season with the NFCE title on the line. As you sit there contemplating how you are going to write your annual "Jerry Jones, Jason Garrett, Tony Romo and the rest of the Cowboys stink and I am officially done being a fan of the Cowboys" thread on Cowboyszone.com, you notice a strange bottle of alcohol way on the back shelf with a red glow to it. You tell the bartender that you will have a shot of the red bottle in the back. As you slam your shot of the mysterious liquor down, you hear a familiar voice from the past.........pause for effect..............you look around and notice all the other depressed Cowboys fans in the bar do not seem to notice the voice calling out your name. You meekly answer "yes?" The voice then reminds you of his offer of many years ago and tells you that he is here to offer you the same deal. 3 Super Bowl wins within the next 6 years and in return there will be an undetermined stretch of mediocre football. Do you take the deal again?
