Nostalgia at the Cotton Bowl

June 25, 2010

I recently attended the dedication of the Tom Landry Super Bowl Highway at the Cotton Bowl , and  it went great.  It brought back a lot of memories of old times.  Alicia Landry was there.  I gave her a big hug and talked with her about the old days.  Tony Dorsett was also there along with four or five other players.  It was a big deal – that’s the Cotton Bowl.  The first game I ever played as a Cowboy was at the Cotton Bowl in 1969 when Craig Morton was hurt in the opening game of the year.  I was a rookie and started the game against the St. Louis Cardinals.  Fortunately, we won, and I threw my first touchdown to Lance Rentzel.  Because we won,  I was able to hang around.  If we had lost that game, they probably would have  gotten rid of me.  The Cotton Bowl was the beginning of the Cowboys, so it was great to be out there again and relive old memories.

Dallas Cowboys – golf at Cowboys Stadium?

I thought you might enjoy the clip that came out of the Sting concert at the Winspear. (Sorry – it’s not Sting)  The video shows a fun golf competition that we had with the 70’s Cowboys versus the 90’s Cowboys in the new stadium.
