    This past Sunday's game was my first ever Patriot game and what a game to go to! I (and MANY other Pats fans) witnessed a career day by Tom Brady. I was a little surprised by how many Patriot fans there were at this game. Probably 10,000. Cowboy fans are also real cool folk. I have a new respect for them. It was a lot of fun talking trash to them during tailgate. They wouldn't concede the fact that BB is a better coach than both Jimmy & Tom Landry. Oh well. Here a few pictures I took from the game.

    Unfortunately, my camera's battery died before halftime. Nevertheless, it was a great game and one of the best days of the year!

    Oh God. Wilfork looks HUGE at that angle! No wonder the Cowboys kept going three and out. If I saw a guy like that coming at me I'd curl up in a ball and cry. :bricks:

    Thanks for a great thread and terrific pics. I especially liked the one that showed a small army of Pats fans walking to the game. We used to see stuff like this in Away stadiums for the great Montana and Steeler teams. What a thrill to see it now for our guys. Actually bought a tear to the eye of this long-time fan who never thought he'd see a day like this for the team he loves...

    Agreed. Thanks, Chris. A couple of questions:

    The Ranch chatline was griping about the "wine and cheese" Cowboys crowd, who sat on their hands and showed little support for their team. Did you find them that way?

    And did you get a chance to see their billion dollar and growing stadium-in-progress?

    Just one clarification:

    It wasn't the "Duel in Dallas." It was the "Embarrass in Dallas."

    #15 Jersey

    Cowboys fans were very loud and into this game big time ... it did bother me that they needed a pep rally before the game with their mascot ROWDY leading a chant DALLAS to one side of the stadium and COWBOYS to the other side. Also the theatrics of the intro including the Cheerleaders, Flames and Pirotecnics was way over the top. Also, individual intros, imcluding TO without a helmet. They even had Michael Irvin getting his Hall of Fame ring at halftime, with a speech that finished as another pep rally.

    Bottom line was that it was hot in there and the Dallas D wilted under the immense pressure applied by the Brady Bunch!
