John Shango: 14 Quotes From A Certifiably Insane Dallas Cowboys Fanboy Video

Categories: Game Time, Sports

TO could have done worse, apparently
Since the advent of the internet, more specifically YouTube and social media, as a means for virtually anyone with a laptop and a nearby wi-fi connection to convey his or her thoughts, it seems as though the best way to get noticed is to perform the following sequence:

1. Scream your thoughts as loudly and blood vessel-poppingly as your voice box allows into a microphone, a camera lens, or both.

2. Upload your work to the web in podcast form or to YouTube.

3. Hope it finds its way into the hands of someone with an even bigger platform than yours, someone who will undoubtedly ridicule you.

4. Start counting down from fifteen minutes to zero.

5. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Examples of this mentality clutter the internet landscape, whether its Mike Valenti's now-famous 2006 rant regarding John L. Smith's Michigan State choke job against Notre Dame (NOTE: John L. Smith's decisions are the trigger event for roughly half of these types of rants. He's not good at his job.)...

...Dan Sileo's tirade last week after his alma mater Miami got rolled over by Kansas State 52-13...

....or every piece of footage on YouTube involving Stephen A. Smith, the squeakiest wheels get the grease, and the grease is a bizarre form of temporary relevance and a spot in blogs like this one.

So allow me to be part of the problem and introduce you to the latest entrant into the Outrage Hall of Fame. Say hello to John Shango (@JohnShango on Twitter, and presumably no relation to former WWE voodoo witch doctor Papa Shango), a Dallas Cowboys fan from Hollywood, CA (according to his Twitter bio).

Shango has a YouTube channel entitled "TheDallasCowboysShow," which I guess doesn't violate any copyright laws because it's all one word, or something. Anyway, he has uploaded 669 videos, possibly making it the longest running series in television history behind The Simpsons, Monday Night Raw, and The Kige Ramsey Show.

Now, perhaps some of you had a chance to savor watch the Seahawks' 27-7 total and complete annihilation of the Cowboys Sunday afternoon. Shango had a chance to watch it, and let me tell you that he is none too pleased with anybody associated with the Cowboys after that debacle.

So behold this completely irrational tour de force, enjoy it, sop it up with a biscuit, and then I'll give you my favorite parts, with thoughts:

Okay, here are the best parts:

I know you cited that he has a ton of videos on youtube, but have you watched them? Most of them are very insightful. While he is a Cowboys fan, he gives credit to every other team, and analyzes the NFL as a whole.


Also, when he uses the word "worse", he doesn't mean worse as in they are not as good, he means worse as in they would beat dallas even worse if they played that way (there are tougher teams). 


I'm not sure if you are just trying to make an article by including this guy, but that one video does not really represent him as a whole. 


@SeanCablinasian @johnshango @adamclanton that was awesome in everyway. Great blog Seanny, and great vids Shango!


@SeanCablinasian been a while Sean. Hope things are all good in your world? The Irish are looking good. I also like the move to the ACC.
