I took a road trip to the Fort Worth-Dallas area this past week. A few days before starting the journey I decided to buy an engagement ring and plan a proper way to propose to my girlfriend of many, many years.
That proposal took place in an end zone at Cowboys Stadium on the final day of our trip as our 2-year old son ran wild on the field. Our final day in the area proved much more rewarding than my first night in east Texas, which resulted in a hefty speeding ticket.
We returned home the night before Thanksgiving. I was looking forward to watching the Cowboys take on the Philadelphia Eagles with my nephew Alex the following night so I could teach him the error of his ways in terms of choosing an NFL team to root for. That didn’t go so well, and I’ll be paying for it on Facebook all week. But as a family, we had one hell of a good time to start the holiday season, even if the laughs were mostly at my expense.
After talking about the weekend’s college and pro football matchups, Chris Vazquez and I closed out the show conversing about the NBA, most specifically the local Orlando Magic and winless Philadelphia 76ers.
But before we could do that, a caller wanted to talk more about the collapse of the Dallas Cowboys, so of course we had to dwell on that just a little bit longer.
