From AIS Bulletin #309 April 1998 Introducing AMERICA'S TEAM TB, 32", EM & Re. The proud parents, Best Bet and Hawaiian Surf, release their vigorous offspring for bloom competition in both mid spring and early fall. Named in honor of the Dallas Cowboys to commemorate their golden age in the seventies and eighties, this iris sports cool white jerseys and blue/violet tights. Unshaven, the beards are dark violet over bronze stubble and splashed with a light spicy cologne. With svelte form and a minimum of nine touchdowns per game, this sporty iris is anxious to score for you in spring practice and fall competition. Drafted in 1995 by a blue ribbon win in the seedling class, you can have your own cowboy for $30. Walter Moores.
