Cowboys do the John Wall Dance

By Dan Steinberg


When I first saw Dallas cornerback Alan Ball break out the John Wall Dance during Sunday Night Football, I felt mild outrage. The guy is from Detroit, played collegiate ball in Illinois, and now represents the Cowboys. The John Wall Dance has connections to Raleigh, Kentucky and D.C. He has no right.

Then I remembered that John Wall is technically a Cowboys fan. Which means he technically approves of Alan Ball using his dance, no matter how wretched the Cowboys may be.

On the other hand, when Brandon Banks gave the John Wall Dance its regular-season debut in Detroit, he got hurt and the Redskins lost. When Cali Swag District came to D.C. over the weekend to teach the Verizon Center how to Dougie, the Wizards lost to Cleveland. Maybe we should just let the Cowboys have ownership of this thing. Then I won't have to listen to Colin Cowherd any more.

Everyone loves John......and he started it in Lexington.......one day last winter when I knew he was leaving I watched it for two hours on youtube.....it's EVERYWHERE. (my personal favorite was the country guy doing the dance after he bagged a deer---hahaha, and then demarcus was stopping people in NYC, hahaha.
