Win a copy of “America’s Team: The Official History of the Dallas Cowboys”
Want to win a copy of the new “America’s Team” fully-illustrated history of the Dallas Cowboys? The book’s publishing company sent me five copies of the book, and I am going to give them away here to DC Times readers.
Simply post the winner and projected score of the Cowboys-Giants game in the comments section below. All submissions must be received by kickoff on Sunday.
The book winners must predict the winner of the game and be the fewest total points away from each team’s score. For example, if the Cowboys win 24-21, only those who selected the Cowboys will remain in contention for the prize. If one person predicted Dallas will win 45-0 and another projected the score to be 24-20, the second person would win despite the fact that the first person correctly predicted the total number of points. It is fewest total points away from each team’s score, plus the winner. Got it?
And for those who don’t win, you can still purchase the book online.
Here is a synopsis of “America’s Team”. . .
As one of the most storied franchises in professional sports honors their 50 seasons of exciting football this year, Insight Editions will be celebrating as well with the publication of America’s Team: The Official History of the Dallas Cowboys. What makes it the official history? There’s a forward by team President Jerry Jones, unprecedented access to current and former players, historical archives and rarely seen photographs.
America’s Team opens with the inaugural season of 1960 and takes readers on a journey through five Super Bowl titles, 21 division titles, 33 playoff wins and numerous Hall of Fame careers. In the past 50 years, faces have changed, but the tradition has stayed the same—winning. The Cowboys have captivated people worldwide for half a century and given generations of fans a lifetime of memories. America’s Team captures those memories in this one-of-a-kind book.
It was January 17, 1993, the Cowboys had just knocked off the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game and were one step away from winning the first of three Super Bowls in a span of just four years when Jimmy Johnson coined the phrase “How ’bout them Cowboys?” America’s Teamanswers that question with 400 pages of just how a fledgling upstart became an international icon. The book also includes the unveiling of the Dallas Cowboys Golden Anniversary Team, never-before told stories from nearly 100 Cowboy players and personnel, including every living member of the famed Ring of Honor, a bonus chapter devoted to America’s Sweethearts (the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders) and original essays by sports icons such as Pat Summerall, Dan Jenkins and Vern Lundquist.
