Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

Ok, I'm gonna give Kathie credit for the win this week since she got the title and artist for I Shoulda Been A Cowboy by Toby Keith. I threw in the Redskins fight song just to needle the Skins fans out there. And actually it's not an 80's song. It was Toby Keith's debut single and was released in 1993.

A bit of trivia on the Redskins fight song, when Dallas was looking to start an expansion team in the early 60's, Redskins owner George Preston Marshall was vehemently opposed because at the time the Skins had the whole southern market as their fan base and he didn't wanna give any of that up. Anyway, apparently the Redskins didn't actually own the rights to their own fight song. So the Cowboys owners group bought the rights and basically held them hostage until Mr. Marshall agreed to vote to allow an expansion team in Dallas that would become the Cowboys.
