Talk about a celebration.

A Dallas Cowboys fan casually rode his horse through a Walmart after the Cowboys pulled off a 20-17 win against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday at Arlington’s AT&T Stadium.

Wearing a Dak Prescott jersey and white cowboy hat, the man can be seen in a video purchasing a blue plastic bucket. Stunned employees follow him around the store, recording with their phones.

The mane and tail of the white horse are spray painted blue, obviously.

On Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones addressed the horse-riding fan during his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan.

“I’ve literally been on a horse inside before,” Jones said. “It’s a dicey thing, because if that horse gets to slipping and sliding and kicking it’s a mess.”

According to Arlington city ordinance, it’s illegal to ride or herd horses on private property without the consent of the owner.

But as long as employees did not specifically ask the pair to leave, this cowboy committed no criminal offense, police spokesman Tim Ciesco said. Dispatchers received no calls about the horse.

A video posted by Yahoo Sports has received more than 30,000 views as of Tuesday morning. The caption reads, “Everything’s bigger in Texas.”

The response on social media was swift.

“Yo Cowboys fans are bred different,” one person said on Twitter.

Another quipped, “God forbid the Cowboys win a Super Bowl.”

That’s one takeaway, probably the main one, from the reaction to what appeared in this space last week. A couple others, quickly: Wake Forest has more football fans than anyone might’ve thought.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The University of Miami’s only week off of the 2022 football season will not be an uplifting one for the No. 25 and soon-to-be-unranked Hurricanes.

NORMAN, Okla. — The Oklahoma football team will benefit from at least one unexpected perk when it leaves the Big 12 for the SEC. It will no longer have to play Kansas State every season. The Wildcats were once again a thorn in the Sooners’ side on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. K-State defeated Oklahoma, 41-34, for a road upset that few of the 84,376 in attendance saw coming. K-State (3-1, 1-0 ...

RALEIGH, N.C. — The most jarring thing about the ACC finally finalizing its inevitable move from Greensboro to Charlotte is that, unlike just about everything else that’s so disorienting about college sports these days, this was not done by perceived necessity. It was entirely by elective choice. That says everything about the ACC’s motivation here and what was driving the new commissioner and ...

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Clemson just passed its biggest test yet. Quarterback DJ Uiagalelei threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to tight end Davis Allen and Clemson’s defense stopped Wake Forest one possession later as the No. 5 Tigers escaped with a 51-45 double-overtime win over No. 21 Wake Forest on Saturday afternoon at Truist Field.

LOS ANGELES — Jimmy Garoppolo is the NFL's most photogenic quarterback this side of Tom Brady. But for at least the last couple seasons, when they looked at Garoppolo, the San Francisco 49ers only saw the photo negative. Their focus wasn't what Garoppolo could do, but what he couldn't. He doesn't have a Juggs machine for a right arm, and his passes don't leave vapor trails. He'd prefer to ...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In Rome on Wednesday morning, Mark Mangino went to St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City for a Papal Audience with Pope Francis. “I got within 10-12 feet of him!” he said via text message. Even amid an amazing trip, though, Mangino wanted to take a moment to convey his thoughts about the 3-0 start by Kansas football in its second season under coach Lance Leipold. Entering its ...
