Can someone approach the Dallas Cowboys with this? It's pretty simple to do. The "super star" hand signals could really catch on!
THE IDEA: A "Super Star" team video, like the 1985 Chicago Bears' "Super Bowl Shuffle," that can be performed easily during a few days of the Cowboys' bye week for winning the division. The video should be enhanced with film clips highlighting each player who raps.
THE GOAL: To raise money to support our troops during wartime. This can be done by Paypal at DallasCowboys.com, or other methods. People should make a suggested $10 tax-deductible contribution per download.
The Cowboys have many fans in the military. The team began pre-season practice in San Antonio, a military town. It is only right that the Cowboys honor true "super stars"--not merely the stars who play in the Super Bowl, but the superstars who defend our country every day.
Super Star! Show them what you are!
Super Bowl! Gonna be that great!
Super Star! Shine your light so far!
We're the boys from the Lone Star State!
Make a fist--just like this
Raise your hand--that's your command
Release the star--throw it far!
Right hand down! Left hand up!
Super Star! Take your place and stand up!
I'm Tony Romo
Smooth as Perry Como
I run the offensive
Like a major domo
I went undrafted, my fate almost sealed
But I've learned to play and I can play the field!
My name's T.O.
And my M.O.
Is catching touchdowns
Don't you know?
I've been an Eagle, I've been a Niner
But the Cowboy star is so much finer!
(MARION BARBER III)
The defense hurts
When I'm carrying!
I pound through each and every D
I'm the touchdown maker, MBIII!
I'm Jason Witten
And you'll be smitten
The fans all love me
Like a cuddly kitten!
I'm a blocking and TD-catching TE
From the great old state of Tennessee!
They call me Bigg
But I'm no pig
I power the line
And I can dance a jig!
I come from Texas where everything's large
Move outta my way 'cause I'm in charge!
I'm A. Gurode
And I'm not odd
I anchor the line
Just look at my bod!
We're a big old line and we're all well-fed
So stay away and don't step on my head!
G'day! I'm McBriar
The punter player (Rhymes in Australian--B.P.)
When I kick the ball
There's nothing higher!
I'm from Australia, so hear my thunder
Punting inside the twenty is my "down under"!
My name's Nick Folk
And I'm no joke
I'm the field goal kicker
And one proud 'Poke!
I kick it far and fine and nice
I like it so much I can kick it twice!
My name is Austin
I play in Dallas...
Hurd's the word.
I'm D. Ware
if you try a pass
You'll see me there!
I line up left and I line up right
But I've got the quarterback in my sight!
I'm Bradie James
And I call the games
My middle linebacking
Hunts and maims!
If you follow defense I have a hunch
You're going to like the Bradie Bunch!
My name is Canty
I'll sing a shanty
I put the QB
In my pantry.
I'm the big DE that you see here
I'm from Virginia and I'm Cavalier!
My name is Roy
And I'm your Boy
A big hard hit's
My favorite joy!
So give me a shout and give me a holler
But please don't give me no horse collar!
My name's T. New
Of the corner crew
If you want some coverage
That's what I do!
I'm a speedy guy and a very fast learner
I'm always a danger as the team's returner.
My name's Coach Wade
Attention must be paid
When you fill up with Phillips
You see a game well played!
I'm a little laid back but I ain't dumb
I'm a natural-born Texans and a son of a Bum!
I'm Jerry J.
I dole the pay
My team's the best
That's what I say!
i just stopped by to sing some bars
And, hopefully, to dance with the stars!
(SUNG BY THE TEAM'S BEST SINGER, TO THE TUNE OF "AMERICA," AFTER THE FINAL CHORUS)
America, your superstars come in all shapes and types
But all the real, true superstars defend the stars and stripes.
