I put Tennessee, but only IF Vince starts. Otherwise, it's the Cowboys with honorable mention to the Eagles game.

Without a doubt, hands down, no brainer, insert other tired cliche here ______.

Dallas fans here in San Antonio acted like last years pre-season game was the freakin' Super Bowl. We only play these jokers when it counts once every four years. The World Cup, Oylmpics, Winter Olympics etc are all four year events. This carries more weight with me than all these other events combined. (but hey, I'm a Texan )

The sting of "19-10" has worn off a bit, its time to smack 'em again.

My boss is a huge Cowboy fan, and has a ton of collectibles in his office.

I scouted Ebay for a while and found the exact bottle (empty of course) and I bought it. I had one of our workers call him out of his office to distract him and I hid his Pepsi bottle. I took the empty bottle, filled it with fresh Pespi. When he came back, the bottle was half empty, and I asked him “Dang, this Pepsi is FLAT! What is it, old or somthin’?

He panicked, looked at the spot where his bottle used to be and let out a forlorn “You DIDN’T!” Everyone that had gathered around was busting up laughing, and I gave him back his unopened bottle.

My review stunk that year, but it was worth it.

For obvious reasons it has to be the Cowboys game, but I think it is pretty important to start out the season good with a win vs. Philly.

The Cowgirls game.

If we go 1-15, but beat the Cowboys, it would hurt less than last year's 2-14 effort...slightly...

I can't say that for any other game on the schedule.
