this, except for the last part
really, it's why i also don't play fantasy football or bet on games (other than an occasional friendly bet, a bottle of somethin or some such). my passion is with dallas, and i can't have that distracted by money or rooting on some other teams player. that's not to say i don't appreciate good play and good players--iggs, i saw all of dan marino's career, and was awestruck for much of it; shape, my favorite bengals were ken anderson and jeff blake, remember blake's performance in a narrow loss to us in 94?--but ultimately, for me, it's all about the cowboys, whether it's ignorant or overly emotional.
