    With the possibility of the coldest Super Bowl ever coming this week, this story about CO2 concentration seemed appropriate. Ryan Scott Welch writes: Anthony as you know, many people don’t know much about the earth’s atmosphere. For example, when questioned about how much CO2 is in our atmosphere most people give me a guess of somewhere between 30% and 70%. When I tell them that CO2 is only 0.04% or really about 395 ppm (parts per million) they generally look at me as if I was speaking some kind of foreign language. The layman simply cannot convert 0.04% of the...

    The Dallas Cowboys lost to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night 24-22. The Cowboys starting quarterback, Tony Romo, was recuperating at home following back surgery, and backup quarterback Kyle Orton was at the Dallas helm. The Cowboys had a chance to regain the lead on their final drive of the game when Orton threw an interception... Football fans, Dallas and otherwise, elevated Orton to instant Romo status:

    It’s no doubt that Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is a fierce competitor on the field, but his emotions got the best of him before the end of the game Sunday night against the Packers – forcing him to abandon his teammates on the sidelines and leave the game with minutes to spare. Following a 4th quarter interception ruling, giving Green Bay the ball and ultimately the victory, Bryant left the bench and headed back to the locker room – according to Bryant, to cry. “I was very emotional. I cried when I got into the locker room.” Bryant said...

    It's no secret that New Jersey's governor and potential future presidential candidate Chris Christie is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan — something that might irritate the citizens of the state in which he governs over. It's something he's not ashamed of and really, didn't care how other fans thought, as he told Mary-Ann Spoto of the Newark-Star Ledger this week. “I am a Dallas Cowboys fan. I know that that disturbs Eagles fans, Giants fans, Jets fans and probably fans of almost every other team in the NFL,” Christie said today at an unrelated press conference in Beach Haven, where...

    NFL ^ | Dec. 31, 2012 | Gil Brandt
    The Dallas Cowboys needed quarterback Tony Romo to come up big against the Washington Redskins on Sunday night. Instead, he threw three interceptions, including a crucial fourth-quarter pick that contributed to the Cowboys' season-ending loss. After the latest down moment in Romo's inconsistent career, I think it's time for Dallas to move on; it's time for the Cowboys to cut ties with Romo. Romo's one of those guys who seems to do really well when it doesn't count, but when it counts, he doesn't get the job done. It's not because he's not smart; it's not because he's not athletic;...

Aikman later confirmed it to the Dallas Morning News: "This has been a difficult decision for Rhonda and me, but after 10 years of marriage we have decided to separate," he told the newspaper. "We remain deeply committed to our children and respectfully ask that you honor our family's privacy during this period of adjustment."

    The Dallas Cowboys have reportedly done this week what everyone expected them to do: Fire Wade Phillips. Bill Jones of CBS-11 in Dallas reports the Cowboys head coach was fired on Monday after his team suffered a humiliating 45-7 loss to the Packers on Sunday Night Football. This move was expected by many as multiple reports surfaced following the game that Phillips was unlikely to make it through the week. Phillips' certainly deserved this fate after the Cowboys started the season 1-7. Last week Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Phililps would remain on as head coach for the rest of...

Us Cowboys fans can't take this any longer.

    HOUSTON -- Jerry Jones can exhale, at least for now. So can Wade Phillips. Tony Romo threw two touchdown passes to Roy E. Williams, Marion Barber ran for another score, and the Dallas Cowboys got their first win by beating the Houston Texans 27-13 on Sunday. The Cowboys' defense got its first three takeaways of the season and held Houston's top-ranked offense to 340 yards. DeMarcus Ware sacked Matt Schaub three times, and the Dallas secondary limited All-Pro receiver Andre Johnson to four catches for 64 yards. Romo went 23 for 30 for 284 yards, Williams caught five passes for...

    ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Jay Cutler can't lose. Tony Romo can't win. What a surprise for both the Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys. Cutler threw three touchdown passes and Romo wasn't able to respond, lifting the Chicago Bears to a 27-20 victory Sunday. The Bears come away 2-0 for the first time since their Super Bowl season in 2006. Dallas fell to 0-2 for the first time since 2001, when Quincy Carter took over for the retired Troy Aikman at quarterback. Cowboys loyalists will remember the 1993 season starting 0-2 and ending with a Super Bowl championship, but that club got...

    First of all, I’m not as ecstatic about a 9-7 record as most people. Where are all those people (including area journalists) who were saying that this team was going to go 11-5 or possibly 12-4 this season? Anyone with a modicum of football intelligence is keenly aware that the Texans were fortunate to play one of the softest schedules in the NFL this season. An opening day loss to rookie QB Mark Sanchez and the Jets got the season off to an ominous start, but to their credit, the Texans did rise to the occasion and feasted on the...

    Did the Minnesota Vikings run up the score on the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's NFC divisional playoff? Keith Brooking(notes) thinks so. A late Brett Favre(notes) touchdown pass infuriated the Dallas linebacker, who charged over to the Vikings' sideline to voice his displeasure. And in his postgame press conference he didn't back down. The Vikings had held a comfortable 27-3 lead since the early part of the fourth quarter. Dallas looked completely deflated after going down 24 points and the team's subsequent play did nothing to dispel that notion. On the Cowboys' next two possessions the team went four-and-out, gaining a...

Republican officials and advisers to Sen. John McCain have accused ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) of rampant voter-registration fraud. Indeed, officials in states including Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Indiana and Connecticut now are looking into accusations that ACORN workers turned in thousands of fraudulent or duplicate voter-registration applications. (The Dallas Cowboys magically filled out voter registration forms in Nevada, for example.) So what exactly is...

Ninety bucks for pizza? That's almost as much of a rip-off as Roy Williams.
