How To Get Ready For a Season of Dallas Cowboys Football

We are less than a week away from football season and it can’t get here any faster. The NFL season officially kicks off this Thursday (September 5th) between the Broncos and Ravens, but the Dallas Cowboys first game is not until Sunday night at 7:30 against the New York Giants. I’m hoping for a good season for the Cowboys, but I’m not holding my breath. The only for sure thing is how to prepare for another season of Dallas Cowboys football.

Prepare For Everybody To Want To Bench Tony Romo

 
 

At some point during the season, at least by the 4th game, be prepared for Cowboys fans to call for the benching of Tony Romo. No matter his stats, injury, or even their record, it will happen. Heck, there was even a Facebook page made specifically for the cause that you can click on below.

When I say roster, I mean the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. I kid..kinda. I mean the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders never lose, you don't have to worry about an in season trade, and they are just a lot better to look at than the players. Plus, judging by the last few seasons, they just might be the only bright spot for the Cowboys. Whether it's the cheerleaders or the players, get to know this year's team by clicking the links below.

Butter Up Your Significant Other

 
 

Some spouses, or significant others, don't care if you watch football 24/7 while others get pretty ticked off about the late night game that caused you to go to bed really late smelling of beer and chili sauce with nacho stains all over the place. That's why you need to make sure to 'butter up' your significant other. In my house, my wife is set with her own 37" flat screen TV, complete with Tivo, and on demand. I make sure she has everything she needs so that she won't have to worry about bothering me during the game. Sometimes, I might take it a step further and take her out for a nice late breakfast or draw her a nice hot bubble bath with candles so that she can just lock herself in the bathroom for a relaxing experience. Whatever you got to do, if your significant other does not like watching football, make sure you butter them up a bit to maximize your Dallas Cowboy football watching experience.

Here's a funny little video that documents what happens between most wives and husbands during a football game.

Beer


 
 

Behind every Dallas Cowboy football game, is a nice cold beer - or at least that's the way I roll. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Keeping it Cool: Football and beer go hand in hand and it's important that you have the right beer at the right temperature. You don't want to do your beer shopping last minute. Going down to the store minutes before kickoff to get your beer is not acceptable. Then you have to worry about opening up a warm beer and it just throws your whole game off.
  • Maintain Your Options: The official beer of the Dallas Cowboys is Miller Lite, so I am happy that there are other options. Corona or Coors Lite are the choice in my house.
  • BYOB: If you are throwing a football party, ask your friends to supply the beer since they will be trashing your house later.
  • Make Room: Make sure that the refrigerator has enough room for your beer or, heck, just put a cooler in the living room. There are a lot of ladies that love football as well, but not so much on the beer. For you, I've included a Dallas Cowboys drink in a link below as well as some of my favorites.

Food

 
 

Whether you're just kicking back by yourself, hanging with a few friends, or if you're throwing one hell of a shindig, you gotta have some food. I'm not talking about throwing some steaks on the grill and a 5 course meal, (though, that's not too shabby either) I'm talking football food. Don't get me wrong, I love a good steak meal, but for one, if you eat too much, you'll ruin your beer appetite and, two, it's best to just snack throughout the game. Chips, dips, meatballs, taquitos, pizza rolls, nachos and wings are all approved snacking items in my household. Check out some cool football recipes below.
