Dec. 28, 1975…. Roger Staubach to Drew Pearson — THE Haily Mary (Staubach coined the term). Not being around for my grandparents’ marriage, his liberation from POW camp in WW2, the births of my aunt and Mom — this was the happiest I ever saw my Papaw in the 16 years I was blessed to know him — and that means something to a 7 year old boy. Plus it was friggin’ awesome.
Don’t worry — they’re not all Texas sports moments.
