Why the hell are there so many Cowboys fans in DC? I've lived here for five years and never asked anyone that. Why?

the same reason why there are so many red sox and yankee fans in dc (more so red sox it seems) -- politics, lobbying and law. DC is one place that given the lack of statehood doesn't require a seperate bar exam to practice here. i know a couple of lawyers that were from texas and part of the dot com boom and when so many of those collapsed they came to DC because it didn't require another exam. politics and lobbying are big business for texas too.

that'd be my best guess at least.

I'm not a native, but I've already encountered one at work who's never even been to a Cowboys game.

I think the simple answer is probably best: Because the Redskins suck.
