    It's an easy answer for folks that live in Texas, but what about out of state?
    You became a fan watching the games on tv?
    Did/do they televise all the games out of state?

    i live in philly and get asked this question all the time.

    My dad likes to watch football but never had a favorite team, just likes to see good players play, so he was a fan of staubach and then later montanna. so, when i was a kid in the 70's he would call me into the room when the cowboys would be on tv and they had a really exciting offense then, compared to some of the other teams that were more of a grind it out run the ball team. so the eagles werent that good then and my dad would pretty much change the channel when they were playing, and i ended up just watching cowboys games whenever they were televised.
    then when i started wearing a cowboys jersey to school i'd get a bunch of crap from eagles fans, so that just made me defend the cowboys more and pretty soon i hated the eagles too. so the cowboys were the first team i ever rooted for and i just stuck with them, and all the arguing with eagles fans just reinforced things until it was ingrained in me.

    Well I live in Illinois, i have them annoyin bears fans. But the reason I started to root for the cowboys was b/c of a friend that visited the Family. He was a boys' fan and he would always talk me about them. Obviously at the time he was much older than me. Now i'm 17 but i was round 8-9 when i actually began to watch football and especially the cowboys when on tv. I guess that, and the star on the helmet , aikman...emmitt, and all that...comes in also.

    I really dont get to see them much, only when for some miracle reason they get televised in my area. (Other then MNF, SNF)

    I'm in Jets/Giants country, go to college about 5 min away from Giants stadium.. I became a Cowboys fan through a video game. It was either Tecmo Bowl or Tecmo Super Bowl, I don't really remember. Regardlesss, it was the game made the year after the Cowboys 1-15 season so they were awful. My brother and his friends, who are 3 years older than me, and Giants fans, used to make me pick the Cowboys so they could whoop me. I believe that was the year after the Giants SB win too. Anyway, I was 5 or so at the time, and that was the first taste of football I got, and the rest is history.
