  • Rio Bravo on TCM 10:30PM E.S.T. tonight

    It has been said that director Howard Hawks made Rio Bravo (1959) as a reaction to two popular westerns which angered him - High Noon (1952) and 3:10 to Yuma (1957). His comment on the former was, "I didn't think a good sheriff was going to go running around town like a chicken with his head off asking for help, and finally his Quaker wife had to save him." Hawks also considered 3:10 to Yuma, which had outlaw Glenn Ford playing psychological games with lawman Van Heflin, "a lot of nonsense." So Rio Bravo was the director's take on heroism...

    WHEN WE WERE COWBOYS... We Were Invincible Golda Meir once said (paraphrase) "... the fighting will stop when they love their children more than they hate us." I've said multiple times that the #1 killers of Palestinian children--or any child whose parents follow Islam--are Palestinian adults. The left's mantra of "Won't someone puhlease think of the children?" rings hollow and impotent given their appalling inaction on behalf of the children who truly need it--children of Islam. Their suffering is inexcusably ignored by these self-styled paragons of the defenseless. These little ones are on their own, left to their own devices,...
  • 2 hurt in fall from roof area at Cowboys Stadium

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP)—Two workers were injured, one seriously, when they slipped and fell from a roof area of Cowboys Stadium while doing maintenance Thursday morning, authorities said. The two were working on the top hatch of the retractable-roof venue around 7:20 a.m. when they slipped, Assistant Fire Chief Don Crowson said. They were not using “fall protection,” he said. The workers fell from an upper roof to a lower section, police spokeswoman Tiara Ellis Richard said. Live TV coverage showed fire department crews on the roof of the nearly $1.2 billion stadium, where the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys began playing this...

    DALLAS - Dallas police are looking for Tony Romo – not the football player, but a man they believe has robbed multiple area businesses. Police suspect 21-year-old Anthony Elias Romo is one of two men responsible for at least 10 robberies since August 15, including one at the Azteca Meat Market on Forest Lane and one at the Big C Grocery on Irving Boulevard.

    Dallas Cowboys NFL Team Column By Russell Easley 2009 NFL Draft Coverage 10 November 2009 Plenty of Credit To Go Around For those of you who haven’t heard, the Cowboys defeated the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night to take sole possession of first place in the hotly contested NFC East. The game featured plenty of penalties and challenged plays, but what it really showed was the progress this team has made since the beginning of the season. So who gets the credit for the continued improvement of this team? Well, there’s plenty to go around. Credit QB Tony Romo for his...

    WASHINGTON -- When the Dallas Cowboys play their first home game Sunday night and unveil their new stadium to a national television audience, the best seats in the house will be in the ultra-exclusive Owners Club. The suites in that area sold for $500,000 a year, feature an upscale bar, personal guards and private elevator that whisks suite holders from underground parking directly to their section on the Hall of Fame level. One of the big-money suite holders is a prince who finds himself mired in controversy over his private jet, which is painted in the colors of his beloved...

    The Cowboys and Tony Romo came out gunning in the first quarter. Mixing up running and passing plays, they made their way down field almost at will. The 49er defense had no answers for the dominating play of the offensive line. That was the key for Romo and company throughout the entire first half. On a few pass plays Romo dropped back and took some long looks before he decided where to execute. On one play Austin was so wide open for so long it looked like the defense did'nt even know he was there untill he made a sliding...

    Dallas Cowboys NFL Team Column By Russell Easley 2009 NFL Draft Coverage 23 June 2009 Cowboys Roster Series: The Defense Somehow it seemed appropriate, for the roster series, to do a piece on the defense as a whole, instead of individual units. I say this because many analysts (by which I mean ex-players – most actual journalists try to learn about new players before they see them on tv) are misreading the changes that have been made this offseason. All they can see is that we have lost players, including three starters. A superficial analysis will tell you that’s bad....

    Gil Brandt selects his All-’60s Dallas Cowboys Team By RAY BUCK -SNIP- Brandt’s All-’60s Cowboys Team — that is, pre-Super Bowl appearance No. 1 — won’t surprise you because these selections include some of the most storied names in franchise history. -SNIP- But the fact that Neil Armstrong walked on the moon before the Cowboys could win the "big game" tormented Bob Lilly and his "Next Year’s Team" teammates for an entire decade. These Cowboys rosters over the first 10 years of the franchise included four future Hall of Famers: Lilly, Mel Renfro, Rayfield Wright and Bob Hayes, plus...

At the beginning of last season the Boys thought they had a decent running game. After all, they had Marion Barber, he of the run over defenders and inspire his teammates with gritty play fame. Then they discovered they had a special little weapon in the form of Felix Jones, who in just his...

    Dallas Cowboys NFL Team Column By Russell Easley 26 May 2009 Roster Series Part 2: Wide Receivers Much has been said about the Dallas Cowboys receiving corps so far this offseason, most of it dealing with the departure of Terrell Owens, who shuffled off to Buffalo, but Owens is history and the show, as they say, must go on. There are two major question marks for the Cowboys receivers going into the 2009 season. Can Miles Austin step up and be a consistent downfield threat this season ? Can Roy Williams step up and be a consistent #1 target and...

    Roster Series Part 1: Offensive Line The draft picks have been made. The rookies had their (mini) mini-camp. The OTA’s are set to begin this week. So it must be time for a roster series. As I look up and down this roster there are question marks in only two areas. One of them is the offensive line. The other is – well, you’ll just have to come back here and read about it when it comes out. Overall, they’re in decent shape if the starters stay healthy. Consider last year. For the games the Cowboys had the entire starting...

    IRVING — Four Dallas Cowboys staff members were injured Saturday when the roof of the team's indoor practice facility collapsed. Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said all players and coaches were accounted for, and he didn't know the extent of the injuries to the four staff members, who were hospitalized. "They were right in the middle of practice and they were in the middle of the field, which was not good," said WFAA-TV photojournalist Arnold Payne who was on the sidelines of the indoor practice field. "The wind just started shaking the sides of this big huge plastic practice tent."
