Let's Face It

The Cowboys are not playing like a team going anywhere in the playoffs. They will probably get smashed in an away wild-card game on January 6th or 7th. So, the only good thing in football this week is that I won my fantasy league. I'd much rather have seen the Cowboys win the NFC East, but that didn't happen.

Ron Springs and Everson Walls

Ron Springs played for the Dallas Cowboys for six seasons. He was a solid player that quietly backed up Tony Dorsett during those six years. Ron still lives in Dallas and is now suffering from diabetes and kidney failure. Ron has been on dialysis trying to get healthy enough to undergo a kidney transplant.

During the search for a kidney donor, it was discovered that Ron's son Shawn, a cornerback for the Washington Redskins, was a match. However, Ron refused to accept his son's kidney. The transplant procedure would have ended Shawn Springs' professional football career. Things weren't looking too good for Ron until an old team mate and friend, Everson Walls, was also found to be a match. Walls has agreed to donate a kidney to his old Cowboy mate.

"Everson Walls is my dad's best friend and somebody who taught me a lot about being a cornerback in the NFL," Shawn Springs said.

Everson Walls ended his career with the New York Giants, and I remember being really upset that he left the Cowboys, because he was one of my favorite players, and he didn't leave under the best of circumstances. Walls went on to get a Super Bowl ring with the Giants under coach Bill Parcells, something Walls would have never achieved with the Cowboys as they were going through some lean years at the time.

Everson is doing a really good thing donating his kidney to a man that probably wouldn't live long without it, so I guess it's time for me to forgive Everson for joining the enemy twenty years ago.

Is it Me?

Does Sean Payton (form Dallas OC and current New Orleans head coach) look a little bit like Lee Harvey Oswald?

Bill Parcells Press Conference

A clip regarding TO from Parcell's press conference earlier this week. Funny stuff.

Dallas Cowboys Christmas 1986 Part 4.

Last one. This one isn't bad, but I have no idea who the person singing is.

Dallas Cowboys Christmas 1986 Part 3.

Yes, it keeps coming. I think Danny White actually had a country album once.

Dallas Cowboys Christmas 1986 Part 2.

This one isn't quite as bad, but it's not good either.

Twenty years later, this still sucks, so I had to post it.

Martin "Automatica" Gramatica

There is really nothing automatic about Martin (pronounced Mar-teen) Gramatica, but he hit a game winning field goal this afternoon that I doubt Vanderjagt could have made. Parcells made a ballsy move to cut the most accurate kicker in NFL history and replace him with a guy that had been sitting at home for the past two years, but it paid off today.
