A few months ago, country music entertainer, George Strait performed live in AT&T Stadium in Arlington in front of a record breaking crowd of almost 105,000 people.

Josh Brent's Return Newspaper Article

#dfwnews #dfw #dallas


There was an opinion article in the Dallas Morning News this weekend recommending that former Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent not be allowed to play in the future, even if the NFL commissioner says it's okay. This article was well written and while I disagree with some of the reasons why Josh Brent should not return to the Cowboys team, I do believe he will be suiting up soon - simply because Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett want him to.

Should Gov. Rick Perry Resign Poll

#dfwnews #dfw #dallas


For the past couple of days, the CBS affiliate in Dallas / Fort Worth has been running a poll on their website asking whether or not Governor Rick Perry should resign. So far, about 60% of the respondents have said yes, while 40% say no. Of course, this poll is not scientific, but honestly I am surprise there is not more support for Gov. Perry in one of our state's largest population centers.

20-Years Since Last Cowboys Super Bowl



The last time the Dallas Cowboys played in a Super Bowl game - I was many pounds lighter, had more hair on the top of my head and Barry Switzer took Jimmy Johnson's team to the Super Bowl. It's hard to believe that it has been almost 20-years since 'America's Team' played in the Super Bowl. Like most of you, I have high hopes the Cowboys will return to the big game, soon. However, as long as Jerry Jones remains in charge – I just don't see that happening.

Moderation Needed In The World Today



It seems like everywhere you look these days there are two opinions to every news story with television talking heads trying to spin the real truth into their political point of view. Over my 50+ years of life, I have seen this only get worse. There use to be moderation in the DFW area and other parts of Texas, but now all many Texans desire is to pick one side and then stand on principle until hell freezes over. Right now, moderation is an endangered species.
