  • Big D finally beat the Steelers!!

    9.5
    I didn't exactly watch the game, but I've studied up on the Super Bowl history, so I knew the Pittsburgh Steelers have beaten the Cowboys twice before in the Super Bowl, but this was the year, and the Dallas Cowboys came up with the victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX, 27-17. I'm so happy, and now Dallas has 8 Super Bowl appearances, which leads the NFL too. What else can I say when I haven't even watched the game? I'm glad the Cowboys won? Nope, I already said that. I know! I'm glad that the Steelers lost!! (no offense to Steelers fans) Okay, thats 110 words now, thats it. The Cowboys should be proud.moreless
