Dallas residents are fair weather fans. We love our COWBOYS, MAVERICKS, STARS and RANGERS when they win. When they don't, our fans are pretty ruthless. Because "everything is big in Texas," we expect to win! And when we don't, we let Jerry Jones, Mark Cuban and the owners of the Rangers know it! And lots of folks are big University of Texas fans and root for UT against Oklahoma during the Red River Shootout every year. Many residents are Texas A&M fans or Texas Red Raider fans!
