Ok, so first I must say, I'm not making any of this up. It may sound that way, but I swear it's true. I haven't touched the thing.
So I work in computers. There is also a large poster printer there. Last year someone made superbowl banners, but they made them early, and made a Cowboys one. It hurt when they didn't need it, but it was great, because I got a high-quality decoration for my office. It hangs on a white board that has a strip of cork at the top. There are (were) tacks in the top two corners, and tape on the bottom two. It stayed this way all thorugh the offseason, I haven't touched it since I hung it.
The day after the Arizona game when Romo got hurt, I was sitting at my desk, and one piece of tape came undone, leaving the corner flapping.
The next week, after losing to the Rams, the same thing happened on the other corner.
I figured, ah well, the tacks will hold it, and they have, for a few good weeks. This morning, about ten minutes ago, one of the tacks fell out. The banner now hangs cockeyed and disheveled. I will not touch it. But it looks like one more misstep means the season is over for our beloved Boys. That is, if the banner is any indicator.
I'm trying to decide if I will adjust it back to it's correct position when the playoffs start, if we make the playoffs. What do you think about this?
