The Ten Worst Songs About Cowboys

Sunday at noon, the Dallas Cowboys and our own Houston Texans face off at Reliant Stadium. The Texans are 2-0 and the Cowboys have not won one game at all this year. The Texans have won two games, and the Cowboys do not have any wins. At all.

Understandably, spirits are high this week on both ends of I-45, with fans on both sides trading jabs over Facebook and Twitter. Families are being torn apart, husbands and wives aren't speaking, and office pools are ablaze with action. Rocks Off even sent a decapitated horse head to the Dallas Observer's DC-9 At Night crew, but that had nothing to do with the game.

In the hopes of inflaming even more bad blood, we've culled together some of the worst songs about cowboys we could find because we can't talk much more about the Cowboys beyond crass name-calling and the like. Sunday afternoons we are usually still asleep, trying to find out why our tires are slashed or telling the mistress to undo our straps.

But our mother knows more about football than Jerry Jones, Wade Phillips and Tony Romo combined. The Dallas Cowboys suck.
