Disappointing Photos Of Crowd At Dallas Cowboys Game Emerge Online–And People Aren't Impressed

I’m from Jersey and over here, pretty much everybody’s a Giants fan. Sure you have the occasional Jets fan who swears their team is the best, but they’re a rarity.

But even up here in the dirty-Jers, you’ll drive by a few houses flying flags that rep the Cowboys. I mean, I never knew we had such a sizable demographic of Dallas lovers in the tri-state area, so much so that people have even written about this strange phenomenon, but it turns out that Cowboys fans are everywhere.

Everywhere except this recent primetime game they had against the Redskins.

The teams’ middling records probably had something to do with the fact that there weren’t many people in attendance, but some people on Twitter had different theories.

But it was enough of a disparity from the other games that people definitely took notice. Surely traffic couldn’t have been that bad?

And this Eagles fan couldn’t help but gloat.

It just wasn’t a good look for the mighty franchise.

Fans were saying that they’ve been to high school football games with higher turnouts and honestly, I have too.

Are fair weather fans to blame?

Is there honor in standing by a losing team? Probably. I mean, think about how happy you’ll be once your franchise actually wins the championship.

Remember Bill Murray’s face when the Cubs finally took home the pennant after so many decades?

I’d say it’s worth having some loyalty. So you’ll see me ecstatic when the Raiders win the Super Bowl. The Steelers would be nice, too.

Man’s Sarcastic Last Words Before Being Hanged Emerge Online, And People Can’t Even

Daniel Summers, self-described “medicine & health columnist” and “cranky pediatrician,” recently found religion.

He found his patron saint, anyway:

Twitter

Here’s Klaas Meijer’s original tweet:

A little history lesson, courtesy of Wikipedia:

Thomas de Mahy, marquis de Favras (March 26, 1744 – February 19, 1790) was a French aristocrat and supporter of the House of Bourbon during the French Revolution. Often seen as a martyr of the Royalist cause, Favras was executed for his part in planning against the people of France and is known for saying ‘I see that you have made three spelling mistakes’ upon reading his death certificate.

Ring any bells? No?

Well, old Thomas got some newfound respect on Twitter, because spelling is serious business:

Summers chimed back in:

And Twitter learned about another badass:

Summers heard from the “well, actually” crowd:

So he clarified his intentions:

And he summed up the unexpectedly epic thread nicely:

Maybe Thomas wasn’t such a great guy IRL, but for spelling geeks? He’s our jam.

Side-By-Side Satellite Images Of Hurricanes Katrina And Harvey Emerge Online

As Hurricane Harvey continues to batter the eastern coast of Texas, people are comparing it to Hurricane Katrina, which devastated a large swath of the Gulf Coast in 2005.

MSNBC tweeted a photo Friday afternoon, before the hurricane hit Texas, featuring a side-by-side comparison of the two storms:

After the tweet, the eye of the storm became more fully defined, and was upgraded from a category 3 to a category 4. Katrina started as a category 5 before being downgraded to a 3.

And we will never forget the devastation Katrina caused:

Good Morning America had an expert explain the similarities between the two hurricanes:

As of Saturday afternoon, Harvey had been downgraded to a tropical storm, but the worst may be yet to come. While the hurricane is already blamed for at least one death, the expected torrential downpours and subsequent flooding are set to create widespread havoc for much of inland Texas over the next several days. 

Twitter made sure everyone knew the potential danger Harvey posed:

As Katrina was for the Bush presidency, Harvey may be a defining moment for President Trump. The nation waits to see how he responds, and what kind of toll Harvey takes.
