    I dont know who of you will actually care, but this weekend I got one the nicest gifts ever. I know it's kind of cheesy, but my girlfriend and I celebrate monthly anneversaries, because we are still dating, and not married yet. Well, this Saturday, was our 10 month anny and I took her out to a really nice restaurant and out to a movie. When we got back we talked for a while, and after we were finished talking, she said she got me something. She walked me into our bedroom and turned on the light. There on the bed was a framed poster of Troy Aikman, autographed, with 2 certificates of authenticity. Now, you may say, it's just an autograph of Troy, but for me, Troy was the athlete I looked up to my entire childhood (along with Jordan) and he has been a role model of mine my entire life. I was amazed, and this was no cheap present, I know that it was at least 300 dollars. I THOUGHT before that she is a keeper, but now I KNOW she is. What do you guys think.

    She sounds like a great woman, but marry her for who she is and not for things she can give you. Even if she can someday bag you luxury suites at the new Texas Stadium, it will be meaningless should the two of you cannot get along during the 6 1/2 days spent together outside games. Of course, I would be tempted... :rolleyes:

    I think it is great. One of my most prized possessions is an autographed picture of my then 2 year old son Troy with Troy Aikman at camp in '95.

    Contrary to Jack's experience, it doesn't have to end. My 15th anniversary is coming up and my wife and daughter are working on a Cowboys quilt for my present. I gave them some design ideas, but I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.

    It is my ten year anniversary and my wife is trying to find me a blue Cowboys' jersey as a gift (amazing what buying her earrings can do ;) ). However, you think I can find one in this city? Nope. I saw white Julius Jones and Roy Williams' jerseys but I want a blue one as I already have a white Williams' jersey.

    I would order one from Cowboys.com but the shipping to Canada is about as much as the jersey :(.

    A marriage Lic. should be like a fishing Lic. it must be renewed every year.. it would keep both parties on their toes...

    might be a great idea... it might suck

    but it was a thought..... which proves.........hmmm

    I forgot what it proves but it proves something :)

    don't ya just hate it when that train of thought your riding stops

    to take on more thoughts and nobody is there to punch your ticket

    that is a nice gift, she's a keeper. I got a nice, authentic Roger Staubach throwback jersey from one girlfriend. She was a keeper.

    if she is less than 130 pounds and will do ya good and go to church,(but leave early when the preacher goes on to long with the semon,to catch the Cowboy game) marry her. Don/t worry ,you can love God every day, and by the way,God never misses the start of a Cowboy's game. Lets face it,He has an awsome seat looking down into the roof of Texas Stadium.....God bless Texas and the Dallas Cowboy's :starspin

    Going to church is a criterion for you in picking a mate?
