Deadspin pulled out an old article today about a (the most?) heart breaking Super Bowl moment in Cowboys history. I remember it like it was yesterday -- Super Bowl XIII -- sitting on the couch in my neighbor's house with my buddies and girlfriends. Our reaction would be much like the Cowboys sideline as the ball bounced off Jackie Smith's chest. Oh, those days.
And the play will always be famous for Verne Lundquist's call of "he has to be the sickest man in America." Watch it.
Smith was on The Ticket several years back for some reason other than this play. I'm not sure why. But the Hardline brought up the historic moment. Smith wanted nothing to do with it.
(And I've always thought if Roger would have lead him, it never would have happened.)
