Here I am at 00:28 on Sunday 24th typing out this post, but as I’m new to the site, you may not know that I live in Southend, Essex – Yes, that’s in the UK!
I’ll be going to my first Cowboys game in November as we take on the Jaguars at Wembley, and I have a choice to make – will I wear my throwback Tony Romo jersey, my white Dez Bryant jersey, my blue jersey which has yet to see an International series game at Wembley (although it does show #94), or is it time to purchase a new blue jersey?
If I’m going to buy a new jersey then, whose name should it bear?
Anyway, right now we’re halfway through the 1st quarter of the Dolphins game after Dan Bailey – Mr Automatic – has nailed a 52-yarder to tie up the game at 3-3. But what has already showed up on my radar is the play of J.J. Wilcox. He’s flown into the pile on an Orlando Scandrick tackle and was right there again as Brandon Carr stopped Miami on 3rd down. As Carr popped up, Wilcox was right in his face low-fiving and butt-slapping.
This enthusiasm and passion is just what this team needs. I’m rooting for the guy and have been ever since the tragic loss of his mother during the 2013 preseason. I’m not sure what this defence (and that is not a typo, I’m English remember?) can do this year but I have a great feeling for J.J. Wilcox.
If you’re at Wembley on November 9th and you see a blue #27 jersey, there’s a good chance it might just be your new blogger, @DCBenMcKeith.
