The reason the Cowboys were called America’s Team, was because in the 70s and 80s they were rockstars. Many young kids wanted to play with the star on their helmet.
Even Brett Favre.
“I grew up a Dallas Cowboys fan,” Favre said, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I loved Roger Staubach. That was back when teams kept the same players on the roster for a long time. Drew Pearson, Randy White, Charlie Waters, Danny White, Robert Newhouse, Tony Dorsett, Billy Joe DuPree, I could go just on and on. I always dreamed of playing for the Cowboys, playing in the Super Bowl.”
Packers fans glad his dream didn’t come true.
