    That was a great game. I don’t think anyone knew who was going to win until the last 2 minutes.

    Damn. What a disappointing ending.

    It’s horrible, but par for the course for us Cowboys fans. :(

    Having watched Kyle Orton play in Denver, he is what we thought he is. He can get you lots of yards but he can’t get you over the hump. Sorry Cowboys fans.

    Didn’t the Kennedy Center Honors usually air before Christmas? I completely forgot about them and only caught the last 2 honorees after seeing a friend’s post.

    I generally love watching the Kennedy Center Honors show but last night’s installment was pretty disappointing…and not because of the honorees, they, as always, are legends and deserved to be honored.

    The Cowboys always deliver the ratings. I even thought for the briefest of moments that Orton might take us to the promised land. But then defeat was snatached from the jaws of victory as usual. Sigh.
