Super Bowl in Dallas: Tough week to be a Cowboys fan

Two of the most hated teams in ‘Boys lore are in town to play in the Super Bowl that Jerry Jones all but promised that the Cowboys would win.  What else should we expect from the man who put a Sooner coach atop the Cowboys, and then brought the most arrogant WR of all time to the team?

The Packers and Steelers, who meet in next Sunday’s Super Bowl XLV, have combined to deliver four of the most devastatingly memorable season-ending defeats in Cowboys history.

The Packers defeated the Cowboys in the two gut-wrenching NFL championship games leading to the first two Super Bowls. Twice, the Steelers defeated the Cowboys in Super Bowls to win the Vince Lombardi Trophy, so named for the Packers coach who won those first two Super Bowls.

All four games were decided by a touchdown or less. All four went down to the wire. All four were chock full of Cowboys would’ves, could’ves and should’ves.

It could be worse.  At least the Eagles and their Obama-approved quarterback didn’t make the big game.  As for me, I’m a cheesehead for a week.
