From newly acquired athletes to let’s-get-rid-of-’em football stars, we’ve got your horrid sports Christmas days covered in the state of Texas. Remember, these all include the dreadful
On the first day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A Mav’s game with Dirk.
Following Dirk Nowitzki’s arthroscopic knee surgery in October, The Mavericks announced that he would in fact be out for six weeks and we would more than likely see his return in late November or early December.
On the second day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A Cowboy’s game with DeMarcus Ware.
DeMarcus Ware has undoubtedly been an extreme asset to the Dallas Cowboys football organization. Every Cowboys fan loves watching the six time Pro Bowler take a quarterback down with a breathtaking sack. D. Ware was the NFL leader in sacks, in both 2008 and 2010. He was also ranked #6 on the NFL Top 100 list of 2012.
On the third day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A World Seriesless Rangers.
The Texas Rangers weren’t able to make it to the World Series this year. Tears drenched pillow cases across the state. Others, however, saw this as a potentially good occurrence considering the Rangers’ track record. They let down fans back in 2010 by losing the in the World Series to the San Francisco Giants, and back in 2011 by losing in the World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals.
On the fourth day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A Tim Duncan considering retirement.
The rumor-mill has been churning folks! Talk is, Tim Duncan might be leaving his loyal San Antonio Spurs fans for a more sedentary lifestyle. Rightfully so, Duncan is 36 years old which is around 89 in pro-basketball player’s years. All jokes aside, this man’s undying athleticism, determination, and humility will be missed as well as irreplaceable in the Spurs’ organization.
On the fifth day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: An Arian Foster dominating the turf.
This Tennessee running back has been featured in every weekly highlight reel. The Houston Texans have been reaping the benefits that this firecracker is producing, with a 9 win and 1 loss record! He’s currently at 949 total rushing yards and their schedule still has some weak defensive squads for him to tear apart in the coming weeks.
On the sixth day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A James Harden shaving his beard.
James Harden’s beard has its own Facebook page as well as Twitter account. This is clearly a joke as the man probably has something valuable stashed in there and he won’t be shaving it anytime soon.
On the seventh day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A Jason Kiddless Dallas Mavericks.
The unforeseen move Jason Kidd made to The New York Knicks came as both a shock to the fans and a blessing to Mark Cuban’s wallet.
On the eighth day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A Houston Texans playoff season.
With a 9 win 1 loss record, you’ll definitely be seeing the Houston Texas in some post-season action!
On the ninth day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A better Dallas Stars squad?
With a 2011-12 regular season record of 42-35-5, the Dallas Stars have done alright with Jamie Been, Loui Eriksson and Brendan Morrow. But, with the addition of a few players such as Derek Roy and Jaromir Jagr, the Stars have been predicted to have a better record in the 2012-13 season. So keep your eyes peeled for some slap stick excitement!
On the tenth day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A better Tony Romo.
Fact: Tony Romo is inconsistent
Fiction: Jerry Jones knows Tony Romo is inconsistent
Fact: Fans are upset
On the eleventh day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A jobless Jason Garrett.
This man does not deserve the position. The Dallas Cowboys deserve much more than a generic replacement. Jerry Jones needs to realize that while he may not be losing die-hard Cowboys fans, he’s losing football games because of this joke for a head coach.
On the twelfth day of Christmas my Texas gave to me: A set of sizzling college football teams.
This has been the year folks! The Texas A&M Aggies are dominating in their first season in the Southeastern Conference. Kansas State’s perfect (11-0) record being trampled on by unranked Baylor last week. And almost every (sorry Kansas) Big 12 team will be bowl eligible in the coming weeks! This is an exciting year for college football in Texas following RG3’s Heisman trophy last year.
