Journal Entry 50 – Dallas Weekend

No workouts, daily weigh ins or good nutrition over the last 4 days, but it was awesome.

Sometimes its nice taking a break from the routine foods and even taking a break from lifting in order to “reset” the system.

The highlight of the trip was the Giants game.  We turned it over 6 times, but we also almost won.  Eli had a rough start but finished with 450 yards and 4 TD’s.  Of course the media makes it sound like the Cowboys are Gods and the Giants might as well just give up this season, but if we keep the turnovers in check, then we ll be alright.

The game itself was awesome and the Cowboys stadium is awesome.  It was nice having some Giants fans in the crowd, even though we were greatly outnumbered.

I also got a lot of crap from Cowboys fans for wearing my Eli Jersey.  Too bad Giants have won 2 superbowls in 10 years and Cowboys have won one playoff win since 1996.  Tell me again how good your team is Cowboys fans; you have no argument ;).  Enjoy the win that you almost lost even though we had 6 turnovers.

The other nights were fun as well, especially one night at the House of Beers.  Basically had tons of craft beers that weren’t cheap, but good to try out.  All in all really good time with my brother down in the Big D.
