Cowboy Camp Goes Hollywood

The stars came out to watch the afternoon practice.  Former Laker great Magic Johnson, actor Rob Lowe, and Terrell’s own Jamie Foxx.

Wade Phillips let Magice Johnson address the team.   He told them about his experience in losing the 1984 Finals to the Boston Celtics.  He used the next year to fuel him and the Lakers.  They beat the Celtics in Boston to win the 1985 NBA Title.

He emphasized the Cowboys have to police themselves.  If a player is messing up, someone needs to say, “Hey, you’re messing up my ring”.  By ring, Magic means championship ring. 

“You can’t win the Super Bowl today. What they have to do is come here to work on their skills and timing and get in shape. Then they have to start with the four preseason games. But then against Cleveland, that’s when it starts. Win your division and have the best record in the NFC. You can’t worry about the Super Bowl until the playoffs get here.”

Magic think the Mavericks are done.  He spoke of how the Cowboys needed to “take advantage of this window before it closes.  The window closed on the Mavericks.”   That’s gotta make new head coach Rick Carlisle feel great.

Foxx was trying to leave the complex after the practice, but NBC 5 tracked him down.  He is a big time Cowboys fans and started rolling off old school names like Bob Lilly,  billy Joe Dupree, Drew Pearson, etc.

T.O. came by and they both talked about each other and their experiences working the film, Any Given Sunday.  Foxx played quarterback Willie Beamon.

I didn’t have enough time to get over and talk to Rob Lowe.

We’ll have more on the 10PM News on NBC 5.

Jessica Simpson Says She’s In Love With Tony Romo

The lovebirds have taken the lust to another level.  Jessica Simpson says Cowboys QB Tony Romo has helped her get back to being Jessica.   I guess that failed marriage to Nick Lachey left her feeling down.

Ol Jess opens up to Glamour magazine with these incredible insights like how they met:

GLAMOUR: Where did you meet Tony? Was it a blind date, or were you at a party?

JS: No. The cute story is that my family and I were watching a Cowboys game. I was going through my divorce and–Tony would die if I told you this–but [on television there was a story] about him. They said his celebrity dream crush was Jessica Simpson.

GLAMOUR: And you hadn’t met him yet?

JS: My family was like, “Did you just hear that?” His picture came up and I’m like, He’s really cute. Then I heard [that I was his crush], and I’m like, Oh my gosh!

GLAMOUR: And you’d never met him?

JS: No. I didn’t meet him for a year and a half after that.

GLAMOUR: How did your first date come about?

JS: One of my best friends played on a basketball team with Tony. He introduced Tony to my dad, and they hung out. Then Tony e-mailed my dad, “Cute date,” when we were at the Country Music Awards [last November], because we were sitting next to each other in the audience and I guess we made a camera shot. My dad was like, “Look what Tony said.” I said, “Give him my e-mail address. We’ll see if he’s good with words.” Then he e-mailed me, and we flirted over e-mail and on the phone. We got to know each other by talking, which I think is the best way. We set up our first date on November 20. Today is our four-month anniversary, but it seems like we’ve been together for so much longer. I said five months to him today, and [Tony] goes, “Baby, that hurts my feelings that you don’t even know.”

“he still deserves all the accolades for bringing me back to who I am.”

GLAMOUR: Back to the tabloids: People still talk about that time you showed up at Tony’s game wearing the pink Cowboys jersey and he played terribly. What’s that all about?

JS: I don’t know–other than me wearing my man’s jersey and cheering him on. And him not playing the way he would’ve hoped and all of a sudden I’m to blame.

GLAMOUR: Why take it out on you?

JS: Because everybody takes everything out on me! [Laughs.] But that was ludicrous. I don’t understand why they think that I would be a distraction to Tony. Do they really think he can see way far up in that box? No. He’s the most focused person I’ve ever dated. I love Dallas. I love the Cowboys. I grew up watching Troy Aikman and all of the quarterbacks, Roger Staubach…. The great thing about Dallas is there’s no paparazzi.

Josh Howard Likes His Weed

I guess Josh Howard made sure his trade value went down before the Mavericks get sent home for the playoffs.

Josh went on the Michael Irvin show and said that he likes to smoke marijuana, but only in the offseason.

It makes me remember that line from Dave Chappelle in the movie Half Baked, “Now I don’t do drugs…just weed.”

You can hear the interview as Howard explains his “personal choice”.

Why go on the radio before Game 3 in the playoffs against the Hornets and reveal this?  The game will be in Dallas, the Mavs are down 0-2.  It’s just bad timing and against the law.

The season is going up in smoke.  Poor Avery Johnson.
