A good Dallas team is good for football; there is something magical about playing and beat- mg them which doesn't match the total dejection of losing to e Boyz 38-27 in your own ium, which, by the way, is a hostile environment for isiting teams that show up to l lay. Philly fans front run with Re best of them and are quick turn on their own players hen the team falls behind. But what is really annoying is watching repeated shots of New Jersey Gov. Chris Chris- tie wearing a red Christmas sweater sitting in the Dallas club box next to Jerry Jones and high-riving everyone with his small meaty hands. You would think a Christie aide not busy orchestrating a bridge tie-up would have texted the governor about Sunday Night Football's repeated cutaways showing him happily rolling with the high rollers of the Cowboys elite and remind the governor that there are 45 bridges that connect New Jersey and Pennsylvania in addition to the Cape May- Lewes Ferry, which connects Philly fans on both sides of the Delaware Bay. Address all com- plaining Christie emails to the Camden Aquarium because the governor's popularity in Philly has iust tanked. Limit the laundry - I think each official on an NFL crew should have a limit on how many major flags they can throw except for offsides, illegal procedure and targeting. The Zebras have too much power, and every game there are flags thrown for holding and illegal block in the back that translate into 40-yard penalties and more. And there are so many booth reviews, why not officiate the game from up there and flash penalties on the scoreboard along with voice explanation for those who can't read? And how can a line judge be looking for holding when his major concern is getting out of the way?

And all that is asked of the athlete is to stay fit and to study hard, and to do JACKI, STACI AND KACI COVELESKI take a moment Snowball 5K at Cape Henlopen State Park. DAVE FREDERICK PHOTO prior to the SundaN the best they can to maximize their talents. And for many true athletes (ones who take care of their bodies) this is not only easy, it's the way they roll. I caught up with some Coveleski girls at the Snowball 5K Sunday morning at Cape Henlopen State Park. Jacki, University of Delaware, and Kaci, North- eastern, are coming off their field hockey seasons but on this day they were wearing rein- deer horns and ready to run a 5K race with their mom Staci Hearn Coveleski, sister to Kevin Hearn but don't get me started.
