Tropical storms of wind speed greater than 74 mph are called different names based on what part of the world the storm is in. In the North-Western hemisphere these are called Hurricanes. In the North-Eastern Hemisphere they are called Typhoons. The east and west hemispheres are separated by the international dateline. Below the equator and in the Indian Ocean large tropical storms are called Tropical Cyclones.
Dallas Cowboys fans got a glimpse of everything they were hoping to see Friday night. Their new stadium dazzled. Tony Romo was darn good. And the Cowboys won, pretty easily. In the first football game at the nearly $1.2 billion Cowboys Stadium, Romo looked right at home, going 18 of 24 for 192 yards and sending Dallas on its way to a 30-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans in a preseason game. “It was incredible,” Romo said, comparing the atmosphere to a regular-season game.

Comments Off on Cowboys/Romo Curse Lifted???
Good news, Cowboys fans: The Jessica Simpson Curse has been lifted! Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo broke he’s relationship off with Jessica last week before her 29th birthday. This after Jessica bought Tony a boat for this birthday. What a deal.
There still may be some hope though, as Simpson posted on her Twitter account “Everyone need to know that hope floats…grab the strings and pull it back to you”.
Lets just all hope that she pulls him back after the Cowboys win the Superbowl this year. Go Cowboys!!!
