Those magical words that bring joy to a young man's heart. (And us middle aged guys too.) The end of the dryest desert part of the year: off-season. The beginning of a new NFL season. The time of renewed optimisim. The failures of the prior season are all forgotten. The hope of what the new season will bring is hanging in the air.
My beloved Cowboys start training camp tomorrow. They begin their quest to reach Super Bowl XL. (For those of you that are Roman numerical challenged that's 40, NOT extra large!) The offseason has been good to the 'Boys. Many new players have come their way. Good players. Talented players. Others have departed. (Vinny's gone, but not soon enough.) But yet, questions remain. How will the 3-4 defense work out? Will Bledsoe be a winner? Can Julius do it for a full season? Has Jerry Jones lost any more weight?
I've only got one thing left to say: Are you ready for some football?
