Cowboys Super Bowl Drought Lingers Emmit
WHITTS END: 6.3.22 *With the Dallas Mavericks and Stars eliminated from the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys running around in shorts and the Texas Rangers only 50 games into their 162-game death march, were officially plummeting into our Summer sports slumber. . But on the bright side, DFW athletes own what Im pretty sure are just a handful of unbreakable records.Nolan Ryan has 5,714 strikeouts, almost 2,700 more than the closest active pitcher: 37-year-old Max Scherzer.Emmitt Smith retired with 18,355 rushing yards, almost 3,500 more than the closest active running back: 37-year-old free agent Adrian Peterson.Dirk Nowitzki played 21 seasons with one team, two more than the next closest active player: 41-year-old Miami Heat forward Udonis Haslem. I gue s Haslem could forge on but hes been e sentially been retired the last three seasons, playing in only a combined 18 games. Behind him? The Warriors Steph Curry, who next season will play season No. 14 in San Francisco.Bottom line: Daniel Descalso Jersey
We have no current titles. But we own three eternal records. Feel better?*Thanks to the release of Lael Collins, the Cowboys on June 1 earned $10 million in salary-cap room. How to spend money thats surely burning a hole in Jerry Jones pocket? If not Bobby Wagner, ? *Couple of troubling sights from the Rangers 3 Craig Kimbrel Jersey
-1 lo s to the Rays Thursday afternoon in Arlington. Corey Kluber shut them down. Yep, same Corey Kluber that was the Rangers free-agent gem in 2020 but threw only one inning before suffering a season-ending injury. Texas pinch-hitters entered the game leading the league in hits, homers and RBI. But with the tie runs on base in the 7th, consecutive pinch-hitters Sam Huff and Eli White struck out. *Mind-boggling: Rangers went 17-10 in May thanks in part to a Cy Young-esque performance by ace Martin Perez . Their reward: All the way back from a 6-14 to start to a brief flirtation with .500 at 24-24. Good for manager Chris Woodward for not letting an early sinking ship totally capsize toward another 100-lo s season.*Since climbing to .500 the Rangers are 1 for 19 with runners in scoring position. Losing stat. *If youre a Mavs fan, youre rooting for a Warriors sweep of the Celtics in the NBA Finals so to lay claim the mythical silver medal. Youre also hoping that doesnt influence Jalen Brunsons decision as a free agent. Is there such thing as indirect tampering?*Congratulations, you just survived the hottest May in the history of DFW. The average daily temperature of 82.2 degrees smashed the previous mark set in 2018 by 1.6 degrees. Pretty sure were headed for triple-digit Hell this Summer. *Longhorns and Aggies, already fighting over .

veterans on Memorial Day by completing the "Murph." Pales in comparison to their fitne s level - or, needle s to say, sacrifice - but for a dork who can see 60 just over that hill, running two miles interspersed with 100 pullups, 200 pushups and 300 squats is more than enough tough.* . * .*Wanna see Dak Prescott throw the home-run ball? Youll have to wait until September. But if you want to see him and other Cowboys swing for the fences in an actual Home Run Derby you only need to head to Frisco Tuesday night. The 9th annual contest which is FREE at Riders Field at 6 p.m. will feature Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, CeeDee Lamb, Zack Martin, Tyron Smith and Micah Parsons hitting baseballs for charity.*Having hosted his radio show on 105.3 The Fan for two seasons, I know first-hand how vanilla-boring former Cowboys coach Jason Garrett is. You try getting something savory out of a piece of white bread with the crusts cut off. "Football" and "proce s", no matter the question. Ring a bell? From the little I heard - - he was just as bad and bland in the USFL booth this Spring. No way he gets a job at NBC replacing Drew Brees to do Notre Dame games or . Wait, *Box-office popularity be damned, Kris Bryant Jersey
we did not need another movie. And, no, we certainly dont need another movie. Who could po sibly portray the man more impersonated than any human to ever walk this planet? Further confirmation that we are totally bankrupt of creativity. *Whew, I can finally get off the Marcus Semien home-run drought watch. After launching 45 for the Blue Jays last season, he didnt hit his first for the Rangers until May 28. His second and first as a Ranger at Globe Life Field came Thursday afternoon. Maybe hell get to 45 after all? Amazing that the Rangers have hit 58 homers fourth-most in the majors with almost zilch from one of their expected sluggers. *Remember last month when Ukraine was a hot topic? Or last week when we cared about gun reform? COVID? Poof. All in the rearview mirror of our 24-second news cycle. This week the water cooler talk at my gym was cringe Amber Heard vs. Johnny Depp. *Yes, the Mavs made their run to the Western Conference Finals without . But scary thought the Warriors dispatched Dallas in five games without Gary Payton II and potentially dominant 7-footer James Wiseman. No reason to predict Golden State slippage in 2023. Also returning to the West next season: Kawhi Leonard to the Clippers and Jamal Murray to the Nuggets. Yikes. *The 1966 Texas Tower ma s shooting shouldve served as a warning. But because of our states irrational love of guns, . *If the Mavs could make one plausible trade to increase their chances of winning a title in 2023 ? *When I see one of those Back the Blue stickers, it reminds me to be leery of blindly supporting a group. Any group. Priests. Athletes. Writers. Gays. And yes, police. . Doesnt mean theyre all bad, of course. Just means life even if you prefer blue isnt as simple as black and white. *Hey Rangers, June is Pride month. Other sports teams the NFLs and and soccers have the Sammy Sosa Jersey
