Hello everyone on this wonderful website!
For some time I've been thinking about writing a FanPost to all of you fellow fans of the Dallas Cowboys. In the same time, I haven't been able to come up with a subject I would like to write about. I didn't want it to be too complicated because, as you can see in the headline, I'm from Denmark and English is therefore not my first language (I don't think writing this in Danish would make any sense to you).
In Denmark the NFL is not that big. Maybe that's because of the size of the country, I don't know. It's growing but there's still a long way to go for it to compete with other sports that's way more popular here. I feel like we are pretty lucky compared to other counties when we look at how many games we get televised every weekend. We have the Thursday Night Football, three games on Sundays (one early, one after that and then of course Sunday Night Football) and lastly we also have Monday Night Football.
The Dallas Cowboys is by many known as "America's Team". That's not the case here in Denmark. I don't know exactly how many fans there is in Denmark, but I have the feeling that it's not the most popular team here. That's just like America. You either love or hate the team. That's just how it is, I guess.
The big time difference makes it difficult for me to watch all the games of course. I'm not talking about the games involving the Dallas Cowboys. I watch all of them on GamePass, which I buy for every single season. I won't miss another game of the Dallas Cowboys for the rest of my life. I can tell you that much.
When did you become a fan and why? Well, for me it all started back in 2007. I know it's kinda late, but then again, the sport is not that huge over here. We have one name that might be known to you. His name is Morten Andersen and he was a kicker in the NFL. He's the all-time leading scorer and that makes me pretty proud to be a Dane to be honest.
Back to the question. I'm not exactly sure why I became a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. Maybe it was the smile on Tony Romos face, I don't know. Back then I loved to see explosive offenses and the Cowboys certainly fit that bill. Maybe that was it. Later on my love has fallen on defensive games. All the different strategies and so on. I love to see a game end 9-6 or whatever. I don't know if I'm the only one to enjoy those kind of games?
One of my biggest dreams is to come over and watch a game live on Cowboys Stadium. I really hope that I'll be able to do that in the future. It's pretty expensive so I have to start saving some money, which I will do, no doubt. I want to experience the atmosphere before, during and after a game. I want to experience all of that. I don't think I will be able to live with myself, if I don't get to go to the Cowboys Stadium at least once.
I actually have quite the expectations for the upcoming season. I really feel like we have a team in place to make some noise in the playoffs. Maybe not go all the way but at least be in there and put up a fight against the best of them like the 49ers, the Seahawks and so on in the NFC. I want that to happen. I won't ever forget my feelings after the game against the Redskins in Week 17 of last season. The game ended around 6AM. Worst feeling ever. I couldn't even fall asleep despite it being that late.
I want the team and Tony Romo to go out and prove everybody wrong. I know they're capable of doing just that. I hope you have that kind of feeling as well. We believe!
I don't know what else I can write in this post? Oh, I know. I'm sorry if my English sucks or whatever. You should try and write a post in Danish. I would be happy to read it! Also, sorry if there's any typos.
