Holiday Hangover

It's been awhile, how is everyone doing?
As December is now here, it is now a very crucial month for the three sports franchises currently in season.

For the Mavs, they begin their second longest homestand in team history tonight against the new look Clippers. Dallas is 8-8, and this month will show us once and for all what this Mavs team is made of. Will they take advantage of the homestand and gain momentum heading into 2009, or is this team really done?

For the Stars, things are going from bad to worse. What seemed like an early season struggle has turned into a snowballing nightmare as the Stars now sit last in the NHL. To make matters worse, their captain, Brenden Morrow, is out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Also, Sean Avery has been suspended indefinitely for his comments about "sloppy seconds" (more to come on that tomorrow).

The Cowboys seem to have a lot of momentum following the Thanksgiving stuffing of the Seahawks (that sounds like a Rachael Ray dish). Dallas now sits at second in the NFC East with just 4 games remaining. Will Dallas get enough wins to get one of the two Wild Card playoff spots?

We will break it down into 3 parts, starting with the Stars tomorrow. Stay Tuned!
