The Cowboys' defense got some bad news during spring OTA's with the tough news that Sean Lee will likely miss the season with a torn ACL. While the news is devastating for Cowboys fans (and players),... it's not all lost for Sean Lee's wife Megan McShane. The couple was married March 22, 2014, so the newlyweds will have plenty of time together in the coming months.
Even before officially becoming a Cowboys' wife, Megan McShane had become a regular face in the Cowboys Wives charitable events. Prominently featured in a Cowboys Wives Fashion Show, McShane helped raise funds for Dallas based Nexus Recovery Center. She's also been known to volunteer time at The Salvation Army in Dallas.
Charity is a regular theme for Sean and Megan Lee. We admit that we've gone after athletes before for wedding registry websites, which can sometimes comes across as tacky for multi-millionaires to be asking for gifts from family and friends in a very public forum. However, continuing the charitable vibe, Sean and Megan appear to be conscious of how this comes across. The couple's wedding website for the couple has no link to registry, and no public appeal for gifts (like NFC East foe RGIII). In fact, the couple specifically states, No gifts, please. We ask instead that you donate to www.emmaforacure.com." The fund has been set up to help a small girl within their community struggling with a rare condition (Tuberous Sclerosis Complex) resulting in multiple tumors and surgeries to correct. Many first hand accounts indicate the couple is completely down to earth - this does nothing to dispel that theory.
The couple has no children, but one dog, Finn. As much bliss as a new marriage bring, Megan doesn't shy away from establishing the family hierarchy: "Finn's my best friend. Sean's my second best friend"

The Dallas Cowboys recently signed Brandon Moore (he of the infamous Buttfumble), who retired before reporting to his first day of work. Moore could not stand the idea of getting on a plane and leaving his family for five months the NFL season requires of him. Fortunately, the Cowboys lucked out when it came to Brandon Carr's fiance Tory, as she was comfortable using modern technology to keep Carr with the team during training camp.
Following Sunday night's Hall of Fame Game, Carr flew with the team back to camp in California, only to find out that Tory had gone into labor back in Dallas. Fortunately, the invention of FaceTime made it so Carr could be in the delivery room with Tory as she gave birth to their new son, Austin. According to Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram who first reported the story, Brandon said"
“I saw everything I needed to see. I saw it all. Technology is wonderful these days. Sometimes you can’t control what’s going to happen. You’ve just got to go with the flow. I made the most of it.”
Carr took two excused days away from Camp to be be with Tory and Austin, but reported back to the team today. Carr reported being a little light on sleep, but otherwise excited for all that was happening saying "It was a good feeling to be there and actually see your first son. I’m still trying to gather my thoughts and bring it all in."
Carr also has a daughter, but as he mentioned above, Austin is his first son. Congratulations to Brandon, Tory and Austin.
Please note all pictures found above were found on Brandon Carr's charity website, Carr Cares. Carr Cares states it's mission statement as: "The mission of the Carr Cares Foundation is to create and establish educational enrichment programs and physical fitness initiatives for youth who are in need of additional assistance."

My father in law terrifies me.
I mean that in a totally respectful way. He's a man's man, a mechanic by trade, who's never flinched fixing anything who also hunts, and showed me his shooting skills by plucking the eye off a squirrel on a bird feeder from 80 yards away with his rifle (which happened to come from a collection he proudly showed off the first time I ever visited). My father in law is a man's man who puts all of my masculinity to shame,.... but when it comes down to it my father in law isn't nearly as terrifying as Cowboys center Phil Costa's father in law.
Phil Costa's fiance Brooke Hogan also happens to be the daughter of all time WWE legend, Hulk Hogan. News of the couple broke somewhat unexpectedly this week when the world learned via Twitter & Instagram that Costa had recently proposed to the reality TV star. Costa dropped to one knee in Vegas on June 28, 2013 where Brooke happily said yes to the offensive lineman. One can only imagine the terror when he asked Brooke's old man, the Hulkster for permission to marry his daughter.
Brooke is currently working for TNA Wrestling as an executive for TNA Knockout's. Despite a recent storyline which had her marrying Bully Ray (formerly Bubba Ray Dudley of WWE Tables, Ladders & Chairs fame), marrying Phil Costa will be her first marriage.
One piece of advice to Phil - remember the consequences if you don't treat her right..... things could end with a brutal leg drop in the middle of the canvas.
