At 3 months old, Lola Catron can’t walk, talk, sit, stand, or do much of anything except cry. But remarkably, the pint-sized Texan is already a Dallas Cowboys superfan.
Born with a congenital heart defect, little Lola cries a lot, and after her second heart surgery it seemed that nothing could soothe her. That is, until her Fort-Worth-based parents introduced her to the Cowboys. For some reason, the moment the Boys hit the field, Lola’s happy.
“So we have been watching football for the past four days,” Lola’s mom, Laura told Fox 5. “Much like parents feel with Frozen, that's how I am with Cowboys games right now."
Laura has taken numerous videos of her daughter’s infatuation with the NFL team, and it’s uncanny how Lola becomes immediately at peace as soon as her team appears on a screen in front of her.
"Trust me, I would rather her watch my team,” said Laura, a Broncos fan. “And I put the Steelers on, and she started crying. I put Cleveland on, and she started crying."
"It's literally instantaneous,” said her father, Bryan Catron. “She just stops and watches the TV. And I'm like, ‘Alright, I'm in with the Cowboys.’"
The couple is sure there’s an explanation for their daughter’s fascination, but for now, they’re just happy she’s happy. Lola has called a room at Cook Children's Medical Center home since she was born.
"She was born in October so it's right there when the winning season started happening,” said Bryan. “So maybe she's their good luck charm is what I'm thinking.”
