Growing up in Arkansas, Justin Moore and I have a lot in common. We are both diehard fans of the University of Arkansas Razorbacks and we both grew up watching the Dallas Cowboys on Sundays. These days, most people in our situation aren’t fans of the Dallas Cowboys because they are the kings of mediocrity. But, Justin quit being a fan a long time ago for one really interesting reason.

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, he shared his reason and it has nothing to do with Tony Romo, “I used to be a Dallas Cowboys fan because most people in Arkansas are Cowboys fans because Jerry Jones is so generous to the University of Arkansas after playing there and being from there. It’s funny how in sports things stick with you and affect you in certain ways, and you don’t really know why. When Jimmy Johnson was fired as the Cowboys coach decades ago, I was 8 or 9 years old, and I despised that decision so badly. Even as a child, I don’t know why it mattered to me who the coach was, but I said I would never be a Dallas Cowboys fan again and I haven’t been. So I am a Pittsburgh Steelers fan as far as NFL football goes because I got a guy working for me from Pittsburgh and one of the guys that started my record label was a Pittsburgh guy. Fortunately, I have been able to experience some pretty good years over the last decade as a Pittsburgh fan.”

At least he sticks to his word.
