A Salute To You And To The Memory Of Your Heroes
Thank you to everyone who participated in “The Dirty Dozen” book giveaway. I trust that the lucky winners will enjoy reading their free copies, and that the rest of you will find your way clear to pick up a copy off a store shelf in the near future.
The story of the Dirty Dozen and the 1975 Dallas Cowboys season is one near and dear to the hearts of Cowboy fans. I don’t know of a more beloved team in professional football than those Dallas Cowboys squads of the 1970s. Led by the innovative mind of Tom Landry on the sideline and captained by the graceful flair of Roger Staubach on the field, those Cowboys won the hearts of fans worldwide on their way to five Super Bowl appearances in a nine-year period.
Even forty years later, I still have people come up to me and say, “By golly, I miss Tom Landry. I miss Roger Staubach. I miss those old-time Cowboys.”
