Dallas Cowboys Tidbits: Week In Review May 22nd-27th

Let's take a trip around the web to catch everyone up on the news from a decidedly Cowboys perspective.


-- In case you haven't been paying attention, our star quarterback is getting himself an old lady this weekend. I like to think of myself as more original than using the hitch pattern analogy.

But for those that like this sort of thing, DMN brings you inside coverage to the Cowboys Royal Wedding.

-- All this time we thought that it was son Stephen that had owner Jerry Jones' ear, helping him realize the error of his GM ways. Well it looks like Stephen's sister, Charlotte Jones Anderson, is the one that has always been able to sway their father's mindsets. NFCDFW.com has a great read on who they call the most powerful woman in the NFL.
