You guys have no idea the crazy **** that comes to us via the firstname.lastname@example.org account. We’ve been trying to figure out what to do with the craziness and posting it on Friday afternoons seemed to be the smart move. Up the week: Social Security granny writes about her Cowboys cheerleader tryout; Dude wants us to know he knows the infamous Cubs ballgirl and Annette is looking for a job.
First: Cathy Rampley
You might remember how much attention the 55-year-old Sharon Simmons received for her Dallas Cowboys cheerleader tryout. But she wasn’t the oldest hopeful. Ms. Rampley, a legitimate 62-years-old with a daughter in her mid-30s and a granddaughter emailed us.
Cathy told us she didn’t tell anyone before going to the tryout – not even her family. Seriously ballsy. Of course we requested photos.
Second: Cubs Ball Girl Email
He’s referencing this ball girl supposedly not giving her number to a Braves player.
Third: Are we hiring Clevelander dancers?
Of course we asked for photos.

Last week I did an offseason feature on the Dallas Cowboys, and their top five offensive threats. Now we are changing sides of the ball, and discussing Dallas’ top five defensive players. DeMarco Murray got my number one slot on the offensive end, who will grab those honors on defense? SBRForum.com continues with this series of articles covering Dallas Cowboys, their different...
The following is the 7th in a series of draft profiles for the Dallas Cowboys selected players from April's draft. These profiles are put together after watching significant amounts of tape from each player, and is an attempt to examine their resumes and play to get an idea of how they might fit in best with Dallas come training camp.
The Cowboys had one of the worst interior offensive lines in the league last year. Center Phil Costa led the league in botched snaps and wasn’t much better as a blocker, while guards Montrae Holland and Kyle Kosier were mediocre and consequently let go this offseason. The Cowboys brought in Nate Livings, one of the worst starters in the league last year, from Cincinnati to start...
Another week has ended in Cowboys land, and all has been relatively quiet. Save for the very disappointing news about the hip of Mackenzy Bernadeau. You never want to hear about an injury taking out a guy for three months you have just signed to be a starter, but I suppose this injury hitting in May is way better than September. Nevertheless, continuity and reps are what makes an...
Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin helped the Cowboys win three Super Bowls during their Hall of Fame careers. The franchise has one playoff victory since their run in the mid-1990s.
So, who better to ask about the current state of the organization than three of the most popular players to ever wear the Cowboys uniform?
The Triplets, who have each worked as NFL TV analysts...
First-round draft pick Morris Claiborne is hoping his left wrist is recovered in time for him to be on the field for the Dallas Cowboys’ mandatory minicamp in June. Original projections before the NFL draft put Claiborne, the sixth overall pick out of LSU, on the field for the first time in July when the Cowboys reported for the start of training camp. Pins were removed from...
Dallas Cowboys rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne is optimistic that he’ll be ready to go for their June minicamp, after undergoing wrist surgery prior to the NFL draft.
“I hope to be fully recovered and ready for that,” Claiborne said.
Even though Claiborne had the pins removed from his wrist and it’s now in a soft cast, he still can’t do any conditioning...
The 1992 Dallas Cowboys were the youngest team in the NFL. They had a punishing and explosive offense and their defense ranked number one in the league. After a 13-3 regular season, the Cowboys went on to defeat the Philadelphia Eagles, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Buffalo Bills to win Super Bowl XXVII. The Cowboys, led by head coach Jimmy Johnson, looked every bit as...
One minor issue with Morris Claiborne coming out of LSU was his wrist. Offseason wrist surgery made it impossible for him to workout privately with teams. However, it was a minor issue and did not make his stock fall very far, if at all, as he was selected 6th overall by the Cowboys, who traded away a 2nd round pick to move up 8 spots to grab him. Claiborne said today that he expects...
The Cowboys have 20/1 odds to win the Super Bowl next season. Wikipedia)
Offseason personnel moves seem to have helped the Cowboys as far as their odds for winning Super Bowl XLVII. Odds-makers have the Cowboys as 20/1 favorites to win it all in 2012. That ranks about 11th among the NFL teams.
The Packers are the favorites at this point at 13/2, while the Patriots are at 8/1.
The Dallas Cowboys will likely open the 2012 season as underdogs to the New York Giants on September 5. The current line at Betfirms.com is 3.5 points favoring the Giants.
It’s hard to believe, but it has been five years since the Cowboys opened their 2007 season against the Giants at Texas Stadium. Dallas was coming off a playoff season after going 9-7, while the Giants had finished...
