Felisha loves the Dallas Cowboys. Her cousin, Eddie, doesn't. Felisha is trying to convince him that they are going to win the Super Bowl this year. Felisha states:

"The Cowboys are 'America's Team' for a reason. They have a long history of winning games. They have a huge fan base. They are one of the best teams in the NFC East division this year. And with their new recruits, they are bound to dominate on defense. All the sports analysts are predicting a fantastic season, and - ask any fan - we are Super Bowl bound, baby!"
