I guess we are always one play away from having to watch the Jackson show again, but for now it's entertaining.
In 75 (ish?) I had an autographed team photo on my wall in Burnsville. Sammy White, Fran Tarkenton, Allan Page Ron Yary, Carl Eller. Jim Marshall, and on and on. I moved to the Dallas area in 1989 and I remember getting up and leaving a bar when Drew Pearson came up and sat down. I eventually learned to like the Cowboys when they started winning SuperBowls in the mid 90s. I also didn't mind the Stars following me down there and winning a cup while I was there. I''m a fair weather fan for the teams that represent the many areas of this great country I have lived in. But, I still bleed purple and gold. I went to Oklahoma as an undergrad so I often sport a Purple and Gold #28 Peterson jersey on gameday
