Overview


From Dandy Don Meredith and Roger Staubach to the three mid-nineties Super Bowls won by the unbeatable trio of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin, and Emmitt Smith to TO, Tony Romo, and the glitzy soap opera team of today, the Dallas Cowboys have been the NFL's star franchise for more than 50 years. Love them or hate them, the Cowboys are widely celebrated as "America's Team."



But the Cowboys have never been just about football. With their oil baron roots, overbearing, ego-driven owner, players who can't stay out of the tabloids, a palatial new home that sets the standard for modern sports stadiums, fans as enthusiastic as cheerleaders, and cheerleaders who are as famous as the team itself, the Cowboys have become a touchstone of American popular culture.



Joe Nick Patoski plumbs all these stories in a book that is a rich, sometimes scandalous, always entertaining portrait of a time, a place, and an irreplaceable team.

    A Good Preview

    The first preview chapter should be titled An Embarrassment of Riches. Its a good thing Jerry Jones is a straight man because the author obviously wants to marry him. I thought the background info on Tom Landry, Dandy Don Meredith and the formation of the expansion Cowboys was very interesting, and I loved the details of the exhaustive PR battle between LaMar Hunt and the Cowboys management and how the NFL reacted to all of it. A good short read, if you can read through the first chapter without puking over the Jerry Jones love fest.

    Boring

    I guess if you are a true blue live or die Cowboys fan, you might find this interesting. I'm a football fan and remember the Cowboys entering the league, but the trial book was as about as inspiring as the original Cowboys were
