Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys are about to go primetime

No, not that Primetime.

Terrell Owens is about to be in hog heaven. HBO will be following the Dallas Cowboys during their preseason training camp for a five-part “Hard Knocks” series. We all remember what happened the last time the Cowboys were the subjects of the documentary, don’t we? It was the last year of the pathetic Dave Campo era and the show focused more on the Boys’ trips to Sea World than sweating it out in the trenches. Dallas went on to complete its third consecutive 5-11 season following the taping.

But that was then and this is now and the star power is just too great for HBO to ignore. Instead of watching Quincy Carter warming up his spaghetti string arm and Emmitt Smith in his pre-Dancing With the Stars days, we’re talking about a lineup that could consist of T.O. – f he can break away from the porn scene long enough to train – Pacman Jones, Tony Romo and, of course, random special appearances by Jessica Simpson, Joe Simpson and Jerry Jones. This has “Reality TV Emmy” written all over it.

Get your popcorn ready.

ESPN finally makes up for the whole `Who’s Now’ debacle

We make fun ESPN quite a bit around here. After all, we play this episode of SportsCenter virtually nonstop on our DVR. But, we gotta give credit where credit is due. This piece about the son and grandson of cult leader Jim Jones is some pretty amazing stuff.

So, hats off to Jon Fish and Chris Connelly. Keep up the good work, fellas. We are so relieved to see there’s more to ESPN than Stump the Schwab and the Budweiser Hot Seat.
