The team with the most bandwagon fans in America wants more bandwagon fans.
With 24 NFL teams now officially eliminated from the playoffs, that means there’s a lot of fans out there who won’t have a team to cheer for this weekend, and because the Cowboys are nice, they would like to help you solve that problem.
To join the Cowboys bandwagon, all you have to do is sign up with the official application that the team put out on Tuesday.
From the application:
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
Wait, no, that’s the quote on the Statue of Liberty, which might be the original bandwagon application form, but it’s not the one the Cowboys put out.
Here’s the one from the Cowboys.
Please note that this is an application, which means the Cowboys don’t have to approve you. For instance, if you’re a Redskins, Eagles, Giants, Packers or Steelers fan, the Cowboys aren’t just going to let you on the bandwagon. You’ll have to go through further questioning.
Also, before you get accepted, you’ll have to admit to the Cowboys whether or not you’ve ever talked trash about them — and don’t say you haven’t because based on what I’ve seen on Twitter, 93 percent of America has talked trash about the Cowboys at some point.
By the way, don’t be surprised if the Cowboys fan base has doubled by Sunday because it looks like the applications are rolling in. Although I don’t know if all those fans will be accepted because most people can’t seem to identify the four players pictured on the application.
The application above is solid, but I don’t think “Beefcakes” plays for the Cowboys. I could be wrong though.
The application below was also going well until the pictures. I don’t think the person on the far left is Ndamukong Suh.
However, I have to say, that guy is jumping ship from the Lions’ bandwagon at the right time.
Our next guy is the perfect bandwagon fan. Please notice that he jumped on the Patriots’, Seahawks’ and Warriors’ bandwagons before jumping off, and he had completely valid reasons each time.
Based on the response to the Cowboys’ tweet, there’s a good chance that roughly all of America will be cheering for them on Sunday. Except people in Green Bay. They would never cheer for the Cowboys.
