This has been one rough fucking week. If there's ever been "something on my mind" its right now. This second.
I'm not going to get in to the details of the game. It's not important...because we lost...fair and square.
But I'm not here to cry about it. Quite the contrary, actually. Because in addition to the fact that I've almost completely lost the urge to kill myself, I'm already beginning to feel really optimistic about the very sore-loserish next season.
Because we Cowboy fans got some wonderful news today. Jason Garrett turned down two head coaching jobs (Baltimore & Atlanta) that were offered to him to stay in Dallas. Yeah, he's getting paid to stay here for sure ($3 million per year), but you could just tell at his press conference that Dallas is where he genuinely wanted to be.
I love it.
And combine the heart-tugging brownie points that earned him with the gaudy stats his offense put up this year and I'll tell you what; he's the guy I want running my offense next season. This was only his first year as an offensive coordinator, too. Next year could be sick! Yum.
I'm normally a real positive guy in most aspects of my life but when the Cowboys lose like this it devastates me. I've got such an emotional investment in this team that I should probably think about therapy. So this week has SUCKED. Big time.
And to make things worse, I was actually there...at the game...to witness the horror in person. I mean, do you think Yvette and I were ready for a win or what??
But things can't always go your way. You have to move on. And I'm trying to.
So this news of Jason Garrett staying here has the Cowboy blood flowing again. I'm excited for next season.
When's the draft? Mini-camps start in May, right? Training camp will be here before you know it...end of July.
