http://thelandryhat.com/2013/07/20/time-for-the-dallas-cowboys-to-cowboy-up/ Training Camp is upon the Dallas Cowboys and their fans. Because of that excitement is in the air. So are the same tired old stories and theories of why this team has been such a hard luck team. Prepare to hear every reporter repeat the mantra of one playoff win in 16 years, or 2 wins in 17 years if they actually don’t cherry pick and count 1996. No matter which figure they do use, or if they make up some other one because they can’t quite remember how many years it has been, one fact from the last 17 years remains true. It is time for the Cowboys to Cowboy Up. The phrase comes from the sport of rodeo originally. It is used when a cowboy draws a particularly hard ride. One that potentially could either put him in the money or the hospital. Or it means riding through an injury rather than letting a chance to rest and heal occur. If you see a battered cowboy on the back of a bull or bronc they will say he is cowboying up. The phrase works just as good for this football team. They really need to Cowboy Up.
