Good News, Cowboys Fans

No, Tom Landry hasn't returned to coach Dallas. But the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day games will remain on broadcast television, instead of moving to the subscription-only NFL Network.

The San Antonio Express-News says the team owner talked NFL commish Paul Tagliabue into not messing with the tradition:
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones lobbied Tagliabue to keep the game in the afternoon after learning the league planned to make the Cowboys-Redskins on Thanksgiving night the first of eight NFL Network games next season, a Cowboys spokesman said.
So the annual Dallas and Detroit Turkey Day games will remain on CBS and Fox, instead of jumping to satellite TV. I'm glad the commissioner came to his senses about this. Otherwise, I'd have to actually talk to my family members after Thankgiving dinner.
