Hard Knocks

For the last few weeks, I've been catching the HBO show, Hard Knocks, off of Tivo. It is a show about the training camp of the Dallas Cowboys as the season is about to begin. It shows what really goes on and how the team rosters are made.

This is real reality television. It's not manufactured out of nothingness like Survivor or Big Brother. It's what is really going on as the Cowboys get to the opening day roster of 53 men. A lot of people get cut.

Here's the dilemma. I've been watching the show and learning about the players. I have, dare I say it, *sympathy*, for the Cowboys. Since I live in Los Angeles, I am without a football team. As I go through the season, I fear that I might actually root for the Cowboys and their players since I know them now.

Me, root for the Cowboys? Am I out of my fucking mind?
