This may come as a shock to some of you, but apparently after a promo for ABC's new hit series Desparate Housewives
the other night, the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles played a football game. (In a related story, the Eagles demolished the Cowboys on national TV, thus making me happy, though not as happy as if a giant sink hole had opened up swallowing both teams)
I'm as shocked as the next person by this unsettling turn of events.
Of course, we all know who the real winner is from this hullabalo surrounding the intro--Bill Parcells. In all of the debate over whether or not it decent, indecent or somewhere in between, everyone is forgetting how horrible, pathetic and weak the Cowboys looked on national television. I hear Jeff Fisher is begging Teri Hatcher to do a simliar promo piece in a couple of weeks with Priest Holmes when the Titans play Kansas City.
The other winner: Desparate Housewives
which has had two days of free publicity out of this. I will be intrigued to see if ratings spike Sunday night.
The losers: All of us who are sick of hearing about this non-story.
