Cowboys Beat Houston 23-22

The Cowboys are unbeaten at Texas Stadium in the preseason as they win the Governor’s Cup with a 23-22 victory.

The first team offense and defense looked very sharp.  Wade Phillips said, “I thought the 1st group stepped it up and we needed to do that.”

He also praised is offensive line.   One bad bit of news, guard Kyle Kosier went out with a foot injury and they will wait for an MRI result Saturday.

He also praised Pacman Jones, Marion Barber and Nick Folk.

Romo To Crayton TD

The Cowboys just went down the field on the Texans big time.  7 1st downs.  51 yards and a Tony Romo to Patrick Crayton touchdown pass.

It’s 7-3 Cowboys.

The O is back.

Houston On The Board

In front  of a crowd of nobodies…the crowd at Texas Stadium is small.  Maybe 65% full on a hot and humid Friday night in Irving, Texas.

The Texans go down the field and score a field goal.  7 plays 11 yards in 2:01.

Southlake grad, Kris Brown booted a 44-yard field goal.

The Big 12 Is QB Heaven

Great piece by one of the best in the business, Ivan Maisel, of on the signal callers in the Big 12.

Chase Daniel of Mizzou is a Heisman Trophy candidate, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Sam Bradford of Oklahoma or Graham Harrell of Texas Tech ended up as the first team Big 12 quarterback. 

That means I’m leaving off Colt McCoy of Texas and Todd Reesing who lead Kansas to and Orange Bowl victory.

Good read.

Shawn Chacon A Ft. Worth Cat or Grand Prairie Air Hog?

Since pushing and tyring to choke Astros GM Ed Wade, pitcher Shawn Chacon will need a job.

Click here if you didn’t hear about this fool going after his boss Latrell Sprewell style. 

And the full explanation is here too.

Houston cut him and the chance of Chacon pitching in the majors again are slim to none.  Bet on none.

BUT he could resurface with a local independent baseball team like the Ft. Worth Cats or Grand Prairie Air Hogs.

They could have a promotion every night he pitched.  Every Wednesday could be “Choke Your Boss Night”.  Fans could come out to the mound during innings and push somebody who looks like a boss and choke ’em. 

Poor Houston.  That organization looks worse than the Rangers.  Richard Justice is trying to figure out where it went wrong.  The Astros did play in the World Series just three years ago.  Now the Rangers are the ones with a better future long term.


Roger Clemens Is A Real Playboy

Man, the New York Daily News is on Roger Clemens.  They have tracked down ol boys affairs, and more than the one with country singer Mindy McCready.

This story is…  “He had chicks stashed in every city – like every athlete, you play golf, you go get drunk and [have sex],” says one source close to Clemens. “In some ways, it’s a lonely life.”

I’d hate to be him right now.  Trying explaining this stuff to your kids and wife Debbie.

Roger Clemens Is Not Credible Anymore

Former and I do mean former, because no team in their right mind would hire Roger Clemens to pitch for them now, expect the Texas Rangers.

Clemens apparently hasn’t been the most faithful husband or teammates through the years according to the New York Daily News.  The Rocket is saying he’s sorry:

On the eighth day, Roger Clemens apologized.

Following a week in which the Daily News reported his affairs with several women, Clemens released a statement Sunday night apologizing for “mistakes in his personal life,” while again denying he ever used performance-enhancing drugs.

“I know that many people want to know what I have to say about the recent articles in the media. Even though these articles contain many false accusations and mistakes, I need to say that I have made mistakes in my personal life for which I am sorry,” Clemens said in a statement handed to the Houston Chronicle, a favorite outlet for Clemens and his lawyer Rusty Hardin.

“I have apologized to my family and apologize to my fans,” Clemens said. “Like everyone, I have flaws. I have sometimes made choices which have not been right.”

I wonder if all those Republicans on Capitol Hill are still behind Clemens.  He’s making those who did look real dumb.
