FanPost

From Finland with love

Hi to all BTB folks.

This is my first post and introduction at the same time. Dunno if this is supposed to be fanshot but I'll do it anyway. Sorry for the bad grammar, I'm from Finland and have enough hard time with my own language. So I must ask of your forgiveness on that matter. And before anyone asks, YES we watch football here too, we even play it. In fact, I play in second division team in my city. I think it compares to about peewee football in USA skill level but that's how we roll.

I started watching football about 6 years ago and didn't know anything about it. It was the first time they showed Super Bowl on national TV. After that I got curious and found "old" footage of 90's Dallas Cowboys. It was like the coolest thing I had ever seen. They were so superior and had great characters like Emmitt, Irvin, Troy and Moose. After that I have been diehard Cowboys fan (dunno if you can call me diehard with so few years but I think I can call myself anything I want for now).

I can't sleep if they lose, get real angry all the time when they suck and so on and so on. One time I had to wear a cast because I jumped in the air when Cowboys scored and came down landing on my ankle. I'v never thought myself as a sports fan before that. I have always played sports and I'm in good shape but you know what I mean. Lost my interest in ice hockey because of football and maybe some of you know how much of a ice hockey country Finland is.

I've been checking this site for a year now. I was looking for a good place to read about Cowboys and maybe if I found a good one, to write something myself.  This site has amazed me with good bloggers and great insight on matters and I wish to join in with the conversation.

This has become much longer than I thought so I stop now. Hope I can continue to read excellent posts from you all and maybe I can input something meaningful to the conversation too.

PS. GO COWBOYS!!!!
