The View From Wisconsin

Just a random set of rants from a Sports Fan from Wisconsin.

Championships are built on Valor


It all came down to the Cowboys/Eagles game, and his backup RB (Julius Jones) and my backup RB (Bryant Westbrook).

The Eagles D held Jones to only 38 yards rushing and 10 yards receiving, which was good for only four points. Meanwhile, though the Cowboys kept Westbrook from scoring, they couldn't keep the Eagles from scoring - which meant that Jeff Garcia was turning around and handing the ball off to Westbrook constantly.

When Westbrook ran for four yards at the end of the game to make the first down - and go over 120 yards on the night - he got me the last point I needed to win.

And I did it after pointing out to my opponent that he had a player ruled ineligible due to a drug suspension.

That is what I call Christmas cheer.
