The Curse Is Broken

The curse has been broken.
Someone must have brought the Holy Grail back to Camelot.
Maybe somebody helped Frodo the Hobbit throw that damn ring back into the fires of Mount Doom.
Was King Tut's mummy returned to Egypt?

Is there any better way to explain it? The Dallas Cowboys, who haven't won a playoff game since 1996, broke the curse.
Last night, the Dallas Cowboys beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-14.

Dang it, I've been winning bets off that losing streak for 10 years. My winnings are probably up to 3 grand by now. This year, thanks to some Cowboys diehard fans changing jobs, I wasn't able to get any money down on their playoff chances at the beginning of the season.
This is a good thing, because I didn't think they had a chance of winning a big one this year.

I don't think any other NFL General Manager has ever kept his job through this long of a losing streak, so congratulations to Jerry Jones for finally making it happen.
Or maybe Jerry didn't make it happen. Even a blind hog can find an acorn every now and then.

Go here to read outdated speculation about why the Cowboys used to be cursed, going back to November of '07. Basically I thought that ever since Jerry and the City of Arlington stole and bulldozed all those houses, they were cursed. Maybe not. Let's see how the do against Brett Favre (of The University Of Southern Mississippi) and the Minnesota Vikings.
