Superstitious Dallas Cowboys fans may have another reason to believe that 2010 may be “the year” for their team.
This is because the Cowboys will not wear their maybe-cursed blue jerseys this season, which begins on September 12 in Washington. According to Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News, the team will wear their throwbacks (those spiffy things with the white stars on the shoulders) on Thanksgiving Day, against New Orleans, but will otherwise be in their whites.
One could argue the importance of this story, but apparently, it’s important enough to draw some attention from the White House. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs--who clearly believes in the supposed curse surrounding the blue jerseys--took time from alerting the online masses of John Boehner’s economic policy and President Obama’s upcoming visit to Fort Bliss in Texas, to Tweet about your Cowboys, and their jerseys.
“Good news for Dallas Cowboys - no cursed blue jerseys in 2010,” Gibbs Tweeted on Wednesday. “(thank you Redskins)”.
Gibbs, or Gibbsy as (I imagine) he likes to be called, is referring to the Redskins’ decision to rock the crimsons for their primetime regular season opener at home against Dallas. Typically, they wear the whites against the Cowboys at home, obliging “America’s Team” to wear their possibly cursed blues.
