Denver Broncos 17, Dallas Cowboys 10, with a few words from Percy Bysshe Shelley's "Ozymandias"

The Denver Broncos beat the Dallas Cowboys 17-10. This was not supposed to happen.
Jerry Jones has fired six head coaches.
He has somehow held on to his job as Cowboys' General Manager.
He has taken people's homes by force, bulldozed the houses, and used the space to put up a temple to himself.

This puts me into a poetic mood. Here's some Percy Bysshe Shelley.


I met a traveller from an antique land Who said:
Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert…. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed:

And on the pedestal these words appear:

'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair ! !

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

Note to Jerry, the City of Arlington, and any other municipality that is tempted to abuse Eminent Domain: You really shouldn't steal houses.

I'm a huge Dallas Cowboys fan and I'm proud to say it... My whole family has been split down the line between Cowboys & Giants. Coincidentally, both my mom & dad are Comboys fans. Even if I had no connection to the Giants with my family, or if I wasn't from Dallas, I used to attend their games and next weekend I’m going to visit my friend to attend them. I’ve before compared tickets prices before from Ticketsreview for free here.
I can’t wait to be there!!

I bet all Comboys fans (who don't use spellcheck)are also big fans of, the free ticket review service that allows Comboys/Giants blended families to compare prices online ! !

Say hi to your mom & dad for me. I know they're proud that they raised a spammer. Go Comboys !!

Jerry Jones is one of the most arrogant men in sports, and I always take joy in his defeats. He hasn't done too well since he ran Jimmy Johnson out of town.

I heard somebody say we lost the game because of Karma.

I don't even remember Jerry drafting Karma.

I am Jerrymandias!
