Thank you, but...
Why the† Cowboys?
My first true heartbreak as a sports fan came when the Cowboys beat the Broncos in Super Bowl XII.
We had very little money, but my parents rented a motel room in Tabernash‡ because the motel had cable§ TV. In the mountains in 1978, we rarely saw a clear TV picture.
†FOOTNOTE (crossed): ... frickin' ...
‡FOOTNOTE (double-crossed): As in "Where in the hell is Tabernash, Colorado?" For those of you scoring at home, I have also lived in "Where in the hell is Gunnison, Colorado?"
§FOOTNOTE (swerved): And colour!
