    Interested to hear more about it, I NR. If this had a specific connection to the Cowboys it would make it that much more special.

    Jerry Jones owns an original of this Rockwell piece, and imagines that it's the Cowboys versus the 49ers in this painting.

    Looking at the faces in that painting, you can tell it was made a long, long time ago.

    Jerry Jones owns the original, that is true. But he actually bought it right after he had bought the Cowboys when he was flat broke (as Jerry himself tells it), on the recommendation of Ross Perot, who collects Norman Rockwell paintings. Jones had to "scrape together" a million or so to buy it. It has supposedly been appraised at $18M.

    If his hat were on backwards, I'd swear it was Romo.

    Visit a real museum or two. If you still enjoy that, there is no hope.

    I thought the title of this thread was about our chances of winning it all this year. Glad it was about the painting.
