Previously on Tweet Break here at Inside The Star, we have looked at some of the best sights and sounds from the ongoing Cowboys OTA practices. This week, we will take a bit of a break from that, as the week-that-was in the Twitterverse left us with plenty of other fascinating nuggets related in some way to America’s Team.
Without further introduction, it’s going to be a wild ride to the finish line this week. Buckle up, Cowboys Nation!
I promised a bumpy ride this week on Tweet Break, and there is no better way to start this journey than with some classic NFC East rivalry talk. It’s the middle of June, we all miss football, and the Eagles are still missing a Super Bowl trophy.
That’s enough Browns talk for now though.

One of the players that Dallas fans are undoubtedly the most excited about seeing back on the field is QB Tony Romo. In this tweet, our Staff Writer Jess Haynie reminded J.J. Watt and Carrie Underwood of just what they missed out on.
As far as actual on-field activities with the Cowboys, minicamp is coming up, which will lead into training camp. Meanwhile, the team’s new facility – The Star – is set to open sometime shortly after training camp begins in Oxnard. Once it is ready, the Cowboys camp will move into the shiny new headquarters following the second preseason game against the Dolphins at home!
When asked about memories from the current Cowboys home at Valley Ranch, Head Coach Jason Garrett left us with this inspiring quote about the original #88.

As you see here as well, the Cowboys’ current #88 actually caught up with Irvin during the team’s “CowboysU” event, which allowed current players to compete against each other by coaching youth football teams in scrimmages at the practice facility.
