I wouldn’t be a good Cowboys fan if I didn’t take the opportunity to congratulate them (…and give the Eagles a little credit) on a fantastic win and for drawing the largest crowd for a cable television program – ever on ESPN’s Monday Night Football showdown. As the Associated Press reported:
Mix in the backdrop of a rivalry and division supremacy, a few injuries, some questionable officiating calls, several big milestones and the historic nugget of this being the final Monday night game at Texas Stadium, and it’s no wonder the Cowboys were ratings gold yet again — a whopping 12.95 million homes and 18.6 million viewers, the largest audience ever for a program on cable television. It’s the second time in three years Dallas has set that mark.
I wasn’t able to watch last night as my cable is disconnected, but I followed it as best I could online and had my Dad talk me through the last few minutes over the phone. And thanks to his foresight and DVR recorder I was able to catch the game earlier this evening. What a game, and that DeMarcus Ware tackle (see image) on a pivotal 3rd down was a real sight to see. That’s determination if I ever saw it.
