    Call her right now!!! This is no time to take chances.

    @CowboysWillRise is planning a fight with his wife for crying out loud!!

    Get your game face on and make damn sure she shows. She may be the key.

    It’s these types of things that add up and next thing you know they call a fan for unsportsmanlike conduct and we lose a 50 yard gain!!

    When I am not working, I grab some BBQ and suds. I will be wearing my Zeke jersey.

    Haha....she's doing her weekly 10 mile run right now and will be back in a couple of hours. After that, she knows that leg irons await if she tries to leave (plus I promised that I'd buy her a piece of her favorite cheescake, give her a massage, and not scream above 90 decibels during the game. The last is the toughest, but we all make sacrifices).

    I just make sure I have something to drink during the game whether it be beer or alcohol...

    I like threads like this... gives insight to the many great fans on this site, beyond a discussion of the Cowboys.

    We start game day with an early morning, 5 mile hike, followed by a healthy breakfast, a perusal of the CowboyZone, a telephone call to the grand-kids (which at their young age, sounds like, "grandfather, grandfather, grandfather, ...." ad naseum - kind of a one way conversation), any final household chores (I am a bit OCD, so everything has to be in order before I start watching the game), prep for lunch/dinner and then the game.

    A lot different and more enjoyable ritual now that I am retired vs when I was working fulltime.

    Spending the morning with the wife and kids, and maybe the afternoon...after that, it's off to the man cave to not be bothered under any circumstances, unless you're coming to watch the game and cheer on the Cowboys.

    I highly recommend the gym on game day. I always feel better after I get my blood pumping.

    Haven't made up my mind yet on dinner. I was planning to bbq but am considering French dips as well.

    I usually sit on the commode for atleast an hour when I wake up on game day. But I do that everyday so I’m not sure that counts as a game day ritual. It seems as though I sit a little longer on game days so I’ll count it.

    Other than that it’s the playoffs so I’m going to try and mix it up to give us a little extra.

    If we win and it works I’ll let you know what I came up with.

    Usually, I will puff some Bob Marley before game, but I have to fast for a Ayahuasca ceremony next week. So, I guess I'll go for a run (0.5 mile) since you guys recommend that.

    I like to take my dog Freckles for a walk around the stadium just to see all the different tailgate setups. We usually go around twice then head home. I come home get ready and always head up to the stadium for early entry to watch player warmups. I normally have a Cowboys cheese steak that I flood with red and green salsa from the taco and burrito stand that’s on the West side of the stadium by the concessions. I changed it up for the Philly game and had the super 16 burger so I’m stuck with that for now lol. For anyone that has ever thought about getting one make sure to ask them to slightly toast the bun on the grill. It really makes a big difference.
