God bless WBAP's Hal Jay for putting things in proper perspective yesterday morning following the Cowboys' playoff loss to the Giants.
"Is this worse than Vietnam?"
"Would you rather wake up in the morning with Jessica Simpson lying next to you, or win the Super Bowl?"
And my favorite: "Do y'all think this is worse than Britney Spears' parenting abilities"?
The playoff loss was a bitter pill to swallow, but that doesn't change the fact that this year's team gave us a great regular season (well, the first 12 games, anyway) of entertaining football. Their 13-3 record exceeded my expectations for the season by 3 or 4 wins, and they were a fun team to watch. At this point, the phrase "wait til next year" sounds like little more than a stomach-turning, half-assed attempt at an optimistic outlook, but really... what else are we to do, other than try to keep things in their proper perspective?
