Going on 27 years without a championship—or even a Super Bowl appearance—it’s been a long time since the Cowboys were on top. Ethan Bird, a local news anchor for WTOK in Meridian, Mississippi (just across the Alabama border), had some fun at the Cowboys’ expense this weekend, alluding to their recent lack of success in an amusing weather report that quickly took off on social media. The clip has gotten significant traction on Twitter with over four million views and counting.

The Cowboys may be “America’s team,” but that doesn’t make them immune from scrutiny, even in rural Mississippi, where college football reigns supreme. Surprised his joke went viral, Bird (who hails from Colorado) seems to be reveling in his newfound fame, awestruck by Skip Bayless mentioning him on Tuesday’s episode of Undisputed.

Motivated by their early playoff exit a year ago (a loss marred by Dak Prescott’s inexplicable decision to run up for 17 yards with 14 seconds and no timeouts remaining), the Cowboys should be competitive in 2022, though the retooled Eagles, strengthened by the addition of Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Brown, could pose a significant threat to their standing atop the NFC East.
