As all of us continually exchange opinions and share Dallas Cowboys & football news/info on this site, I occassionally get curious about some things.
And what is it (you might ask)???
How did you come up with your username that you log in under here at bloggingtheboys.com... like for example, I came up with silverblue5 because:
a. My favorite NFL Football Team is the Dallas Cowboys and their colors are silver and blue.
b. 5 is the number of Super Bowls our beloved team has won.
I also would like to add, what made you choose the Cowboys as your favorite NFL Football Team... and what was the first game you ever watched them play on TV.
For me, it was one particular Thanksgiving Day where my Dad, Mom, self, sister, and brother went over to another family's house. It was an old high school friend of my Dad's -- and they both were in the Navy together at the time (mid-70s I think).
Well, my Dad's friend was a Redskins fan and my Dad was a Cowboys fan (and still is). This particular game was the one when Roger Staubach got injured and Clint Longley came in and threw that bomb to win the game against the George Allen-Billy Kilmer led Skins.
My Dad is a very quiet, laid back kind of guy who is reserved in public settings... or even settings where there are more than five people.
Surprising to me was when he stood up and cheered after Longley's famous TD pass... and of course, being about 8 or 9 at the time, I got excited, too.
That being said, I'll be eternally grateful to my Dad for indirectly leading me to become a Dallas Cowboys fan.
What's the meaning of your username here on BTB, what was the first Cowboys game you ever watched (on TV and/or live at a stadium), and how did you become a fan of America's Team?
