Dak Prescott's homecoming a business trip to him, Super Bowl to others

The fleur-de-lis on the sign for Limitz Barbershop in Bossier City, Louisiana, gives away Torrian Brock's loyalty to the New Orleans Saints. But that loyalty will be tested Sunday because of his feelings for Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.

Brock started cutting Prescott's hair when the quarterback was in seventh grade and remains close to the family, meeting up with Prescott when he returns nike nfl jerseys cheap

"I would like to see Dak do good, throw about four touchdowns, two to Amari Cooper because I've got both on my fantasy team, but the end result, I want to see the Saints win," Brock said. "I've got to get a little payback."4

Brock is like a lot of folks in North Louisiana this week. His barbershop serves as a place to talk about everything -- "sports, politics, religion, you name it, we talk it," he said -- but it is different during Cowboys-Saints week.

"You swear to God, it's Super Bowl Sunday when they play each other," Brock said.

Brock grew up in New Orleans as a Saints fan, but the northern regions of Louisiana are mostly Cowboys territory, because Dallas is approximately three hours away and the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is more than five hours nfl nike jerseys china

In 2006, the Cowboys beat the Saints 30-7 in a preseason game played in Shreveport, Louisiana, that still haunts Brock.

"I made a bet with the guys in the shop that if the Cowboys won, I would put on a dress and wear a Cowboys jersey," Brock said. "They took the picture with a Polaroid, so I was able to get my hands on it. It's not going to be shown again. I still have it. I mess with folks, 'This is why I don't like the Cowboys. This is what they made me do.'"

There is another picture Brock, who wears a Saints hat almost every day, is willing to show. It is him with Prescott, who was in town to run his football camp in 2017. Although in this picture, Brock flipped his hat backward.
