To set the stage, yesterday, the Cowboys continued their streak of not winning playoff games. It was more heartbreaking than usual because they were on the cusp of winning. Then the team lost track of the time, the referee, the ball, and the words "time out." The 49ers advanced. The Cowboys lost. The people turned their lonely eyes to Stephen A. Smith's Twitter page.
That was just the preview. The real mockery came today on ESPN's "First Take," where he had a montage ready of overly emotional fans who couldn't believe their team did this to them again. I wished I loved anything in my life as much as Stephen A. Smith loves hating the Cowboys.
The whole thing is really silly. It's just a game. I wasn't this upset when my dad died. I guess if I had to watch him die over and over again every year like Dallas fans watch their team lose, it would damage my psyche. But I would never act like this over the Buffalo Bills. Of course, the Bills won their game last weekend. Destroyed the Patriots and everything. It was awesome to watch. But IF they lose, I'll just shut off the TV like a sane, non-crazy person.
