    I cant ever remember NOT being a Cowboys fan...when I was in the 1st grade I can remember bringing (LOTS) of quarters to buy pencils from the pencil machine at my elementary school every day....I was chasing as many Dallas Cowboy pencils as I could get and even though I was just outside Tulsa, OK it seemed like there were fewer Dallas pencils than any of the others...I had to have them...as many as possible....a quick search for these exact pencils and I found this awesome set on ebay...I had all teams wrapped in a rubber band for years. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-70s...y-Case-COWBOYS-PACKERS-FOOTBALL-/151138369397

    Looks like I shouldve hung on to them...My name is Daniel and at the time they had this QB named "Danny" White and a RB that had a 99 yard run-Tony Dorsett. The awesome star on the helmet just topped it off and being in Oklahoma, they were the closest, and were on tv every week. I also remember the local police coming yearly to bring students Dallas Cowboys (and cheerleaders) team football cards....those were the days! I have ALWAYS been a Cowboys fan....

    Hmmm.... I would describe Dallas as a pretty large city with more of a smaller town atmosphere. Things to do are fairly spread out, so it's not like a NY or Chicago where you do everything in the middle of downtown. The Mexican food/Tex Mex is by far my favorite part about the city. I've just been around the area my whole life so it's kind of hard for me to describe in terms of similarities with other cities haha.

    In a funny way, you described DC without the politics glazing the idea of the real citty. VERY small town atmosphere round here (10 story height restriction still mainly in place). Only been to Balt, Phili, AC, and NY for personal reasons...kinda wondered about the other mid size cities in the US like Dallas. DC has been gentrified greatly the last 15 years counting but many of the ex DC citizens now reside in PG county MD, really coinciding with NE and SE DC...I appreciate the follow up...

    I lived in Hollywood.

    It ain't that great, and it has a LOT of underclass.

    Yeah, actually been to Rodando, CA with these punk skater kids for about a week for work. We visited LA a few times, didn't seem attractive. Every guy there speaks "soft" or hmmm, but found out that is how straight guys speak over there, I thought I was being understanding and liberal but they were actually straight? Different coasts, dift. cultures...no problems with gays...just straight guys "playing the part" so to speak...real men know what I mean.

    I know what you mean, but not really talking about "that aspect". I respect LA for allowing white men to play gay men in their lives...that is all I'm playin about.,..Yoga and sandles n skit? I couldn't even imagine an East coast dude saying that stuff with a straight face but they will over there, and then look at you like, "you don"t know?" My boy from Catholic school lives over there and is living it up as the new "West Coast" guy but man, "not a guy I would want to have a beer or joint with"....

    I know exactly what you mean.

    I lived two blocks from Grauman's Chinese Theater on Hollywood Blvd.

    It's a great place to visit. Terrible place to live.

    The folks in Texas are made from different stuff and it agrees with me better than those guys over there.

    Which is why I moved back.

    But s

    I really wish straight, LIBERAL would reclaim testosterone. You can do it if you play the right chords...Liberal men have been emasculated and we can stick and draw in "real life" with a conservative any day...

    I have no problem with liberals.

    I'm extremely independent and understanding- which makes me pretty liberal, I guess...

    But folks from Texas are just... nicer.

    At least from my experience- they takes things a bit slower. Thing are taken more with a grain of salt.

    L.A. was... always intense.

    From crossing the street to people wanting to know if you were "In the business".

    I lived there for 10 years and didn't make one single good friend- and I'm a really cool dude.

    Would agree with this atmosphere unfortunately, liberal agnedas usally draw lines in the sand that make it hard for people to find common ground,

    No weirdness for me.

    Not conservative, not liberal.

    I believe in shades of gray.

    There is no black, or white. That's silly-talk.

    We shall leave it at that- I respect everything you've said, my friend.

    I was merely stating my experiences in that place while I was there.

    I agree with your premise and the idea of liberalism is to cause uneasiness and question to hierarchy in front of them. Appreciate the Hollywood perspective...

    When I was a kid, my brother and I would play that old electrical football game with the buzzing men. The two teams that came with it were Pitt and Dallas. He was a Pitt fan, so I would always be Dallas. Later that year was the first SB I really remember watching, and it was SB XII, where Dallas beat the Broncos. Put that all together with the star, the white uniforms, all the great players, Landry...it was an easy team to fall in love with.

    First game I saw as a kid was the Hail Mary playoff win.
    Really respected the Christian Class of both Roger and Coach Landry.
    Been a fan ever since.
