Tony is 51 today. That's a lot of spankings. He's my favorite Cowboy of all time and I've related my brush with him here before so I won't bore everyone with it. We'll never see a back quite like him again who encompasses the agility, speed, balance, incredible footwork, and phenomenal vision.
Thanks for the memories, Tony! That is all.

Anyone watch PTI today? I was just curious if they gave him one of their daily end-of-the-show birthday wishes considering the love affair ESPN has with the Cowboys. :rolleyes:

Very cool of you to remember.

He is definitely my favorite Cowboy's player. I got a chance to meet him 2 years ago at the Hall of Fame Game. I was one of the lucky individuals picked to represent the U.S Navy during the halftime show and I met #33 on the sidelines right before halftime. Happy B-day Tony D..

Yep, Happy B-Day TD!
I met & chatted with him for over an hour way back when I was living in Hawaii & he was there for the Pro Bowl in the mid 80's...
I always thought he could have been the all time leading rusher if he had had Emmitts Oline...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TD!!!
I met him once at the Cowboys hotel in the DC area. They were coming back from the dining area and I was the first to see him. Everyone flocking to another player (I believe Danny White) and it gave me an opportunity to have one on one contact. What did I do, I yelled "there's Tony Dorsett." In seconds, my 12 year old body was engulfed in the crowd. Now in the middle of the pack, I worked my back to him and all I could hear my mother say was "touch him, just touch him."
No autograph, no picture but I did get to touch one of the most prolific RB's of all time and definitely the greatest football player of my youth.

Happy Birthday, Tony! Easily one of the most exciting players to watch in the history of the game.

Tony was one of the first cowboys I got to watch. I consider myself privelaged having grown up watching a legitimate legend. Happy bday tony d and many more.

Yup, Dorsett was a great one. How could he not be a Cowboy fan's favorite.
