How the Dallas Cowboys became known as “America’s Team”

What makes any professional sports team great?

The players? Loyal fans? Perhaps the team’s owner or management? Championships? An elite coaching staff? Famous cheerleaders? Quite possibly franchise worth?

Again, what makes a professional team considered to be great?

Several teams in various sports have been labeled great. Front and center are the New York Yankees, winners of 27 World Series Championships and 40 American League pennants. No pro basketball organization has won more titles than the 17-time World Champion Boston Celtics, including eight years in a row from 1959-1966.
