Former Cowboys greats Roger Staubach and Drew Pearson were on hand Wednesday as the organization showed off plans to create a Ring of Honor walkway at the team’s headquarters.
And just for kicks, the ex-QB Staubach threw a long-ish pass to Pearson – you could even consider it a Hail Mary – which the former wide receiver caught.
Even though these men are long since retired and were wearing suits, it was SO FUNNY* to see them in some semblance of re-enacting the Hail Mary that ended the Vikings’ 1975 season.
Nate Wright was apparently not available to play third wheel as the man falling to the ground on the play. I’m not saying I wasn’t tempted to Photoshop him into a frame grab of the parking lot Hail Mary, and I’m not saying I wouldn’t add it to the post if someone else wants to go to the trouble.
*By so funny, I mean incredibly painful, even if I once wrote that Pearson didn’t really push off.
