Toomay was quite the character.
You should watch his hall of fame speech were he takes a funny jab at Jerry.
Those Tom Landry shows where he ran the projector back and forth were pure gold. The way he showed what both sides were trying to accomplish and how the play was executed was light years ahead of the fluff that's on today.
That article was a great read.
I think most real football fans would love to see a show like that today but the networks, particularly BSPN, are more concerned with tabloid dirt than with real football/sports stuff.
Sitting with the Landry family at his HOF induction..tops on my list.
One of my favorite commercials, ever (for obvious reasons)!! Happy B' Day, Coach Landry!!!
Cheers coach. You'll always be fondly remembered.
He was one of a kind. We won't see the likes of him again.
Probably coaching up there somewhere ... I can just imagine the offensive line doing the hitch before every play- you would know one of his teams immediately by just that alone- I always thought it was so distinctively a Landry trade mark.
Forever remembered, always missed.
Of course I don't remember it, but when I was an infant, I was held by Tom Landry. I had to have brain surgery and it was touch and go. Mr. Landry and a few of the boys were at the hospital visiting sick children. He held me and said a prayer for me.
He was a special man, not just a great coach. They don't come any better than him
Missed and never forgotten
