Off Asides On Dallas Cowboys vs NY Giants

Jeff Prince
This David and Goliath story ended badly. First off, David forgot his slingshot. Secondly, his movements were encumbered by a huge goiter on his neck. He did bring a six-shooter — but shot all six rounds into his own foot...

Is It Petty To Revel In A-Rod’s Downfall?

Jeff Prince
Alex Rodriguez made my sh#tlist from Day One. Day One around here was when Texas Rangers owner Tom Hicks forked over $252 million to nab A-Rod in free agency. The contract seemed like drunken spending by an owner who proved him...

Off Asides On Dallas Cowboys vs Ravens

Jeff Prince
Football fans are funny. And by funny I mean sad. Neurotic, too. Last week, Dallas Cowboys fans boo-hoo’d about the team’s poor play in its first four games and declared the season a washout before the halfway point...

Tony Romo Takes Another Hit

Jeff Prince
Poor Tony Romo. First, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback gets berated by blowhard sportscaster Joe Theismann. Now a satirical social media site is lampooning Oh No Romo for his questionable play in recent weeks (or years). P.S. &#...

Joe Theismann Smacktalks Romo, Jerry, Dallas Cowboys

Jeff Prince
Normally I wouldn’t quote Joe Theismann. He’s an egomaniac former Washington Redskins quarterback turned annoying sportscaster turned who gives a rat’s ass. He summarized the State of the Dallas Cowboys this s...
