The Hall of Fame game is on tonight. DH and I will enjoy watching it. It will be interesting to see how Terrell Owens - now of the Buffalo Bills, formerly of the Dallas Cowboys - plays.
We never really cared for TO when he played with the Cowboys. Oh yes, he is talented, but he has such an insufferable attitude and a rather sharp tongue. Of course, a lot of players these days have such an attitude.
DH has some very happy childhood memories of a couple of Dallas Cowboys as he was growing up in the Dallas area in a middle-class neighborhood.
Bob Lily and Lee Roy Jordan of the Dallas Cowboys lived in DH's neighborhood, and they often played football in their front yards with the neighborhood boys, DH among them. Bob Lily kept an old mailbox full of press photos near his door to sign for people who came knocking on his door asking for his autograph. Once, Walt Garrison came by to visit Bob Lily and he sat around and talked with the neighborhood kids for a bit.
Would this happen today? Unlikely as the times are a lot different. But DH still gets a kick out of telling people that he used to "play football" with Bob Lily and Lee Roy Jordan.
Emma doesn't find football very exciting.
