Default Working with NON-Texan fans

Yesterday started out brutal. My General Foreman (Cowgirl Fan) walked up and sarcastically asked who won the Dallas game. After about 8 guys in my crew starting gloating over the astounding victory over the Super Bowl Champs, he then said if you want a good laugh the Texans played Saturday. Well it was on then. I told them how impessively they handled the 2,3,and 4th stringers and they ought to be proud.Then I was made aware of a "Stupid Draft" move we made last year for someone nobody had ever heard of. Now who's stupid? After about 30 minutes of Texan bashing, I started laying down some facts alot from what I have read here.By the end of the conversation they were all saying that they agree the Texans will be better than years past. I'm not sure if it was the things I pointed out, or when I asked when was the last time they made the playoffs( which by the way I answered for them) that changed their tone. Either way Dallas fans still suck like their team.

Were they really braggin about a pre-season game

Next time let them brag about a pre-season game. If we go 0-4 in preaseason let them get on you about that. When people brag about preseason I say two words "It's Pre-season."

The Raiders went 4-0 in pre-season last year...

I being in Cowboys/Broncos/Chiefs country myself, can relate to this story. I'll let our good buddy speak for me though...



I feel your pain.

If there is one thing that that just DRIVES ME CRAZY, is the Cowgirl fans at work.

They (cowgirls) have themselves in a funny situation with Romo and his contract talks. My perfect scenario for them is that they sign him to a huge contract, and then he starts to show his true lack of talent as he did late last season.

Oh yeah, I hope Mr. McNair can get his/our team to the 2011 Super Bowl being played in jerry jones' new stadium. Now that would be justice served!

I don't know if the Tacks are hosting a SuperBowl anytime soon.
But true justice would be winning the Super Bowl in Bud's stadium.
