Poor Daryl Johnson. The former Cowboys fullback turned mediocre FOX football color analyst said last week that the big bad meanies in Philadelphia still aren’t very nice when he visits Lincoln Financial Field.
Dude, you played in Dallas for 10 years and were an integral part of their three Super Bowl championships during that stint. What the hell do you want, a slap on the ass?
Johnston went on to pontificate about the far reaching popularity of the Cowboys, focusing on the “America’s Team” moniker.
“It’s good,” he said. “There are Cowboys fans everywhere. People recognize me as Moose. I think that’ll always be a part of who I am. It’s fun. We have Cowboy fans in Washington, New York, Philadephia, all over the country. When you talk about America’s Team, I think the moniker for the Dallas Cowboys really fits because we have a fan base that extends to every city.”
Yes. Then again, Cowboys “fans” in those cities are a simply “fans” because they like to see other people miserable. A city’s team loses–they point a finger and laugh. They’re front-running pests, whose allegiance is ill-founded. And, fortunately, they haven’t enjoyed any success over the last 16 years and have endured much deserved embarrassment along the way.
How’s that for a middle finger, Moose?
