Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed into a law a holiday commemorating cowboys, saying that the American Southwest will never forget what a great team they were and could have been had they not signed Tony Romo for another six years.
“These men and women — of all races and backgrounds — are among the truest symbols of the American southwest,” Gov. Brewer said of Dallas fans, the largest and most annoying fan base in pro-football. “Even they deserve better than this.”
The holiday will take place on the fourth Saturday every July, or shortly before the Hall of Fame Game in which Romo will disappointingly kickoff the NFL preseason this year. In solidarity with Dallas’ salary cap, it will be an unpaid holiday.
