Jun 28 - DCC: Fourteen cheerleaders who resigned return but their director does not (1989); Birthdays: Chuck Howley (LB: 1961-73, b. 1936), Ryan Young (T: 2003, b. 1976)
Trivia: (1) Although he gets the blame, it actually wasn't Jerry's idea to put the DCC in halter tops and biker shorts; whose idea was it? (2) Who was the DCC Director who resigned? (3) What is Howley's nickname?
1. Tony Romo
2. Debbie Bond
Jun 29 - Milestones: Tony Dorsett attempts comeback, works out at Valley Ranch (1990), Collective Bargaining Agreement approved (1993), Keith Davis shot outside a strip club (2003), Flozell Adams visits Steelers (2010); Re-signed: Mark Stepnoski (1994); Birthdays: Joe DeCamillis (Asst coach: 2009-11, b. 1965), Bobby King (Assistant coach: 2010, b. 1978)
Trivia: Long after he left the Cowboys, he kicked the last points scored by this franchise on this date. Name the player, the team, and the year?
Jun 30 - Traded: J.W. Lockett to Colts (1963); Honors: Danny White inducted into Arena Football League HOF (2002); Birthdays: Miles Austin (WR: 2006-11, b. 1984), Pat Dennis (DB: 2001, b. 1978); Deaths: Jim Doran (1994)
Trivia: (1) Doran was the first Cowboy to receive this recognition -- what was it? (2) How does Austin's 2006 kickoff return average compare all-time among Cowboy rookies?
1. Of course Romo was not with the Cowboys in 1989; it was PR Director Greg Aiello's idea
3. Howley's nickname was "Hogmeat"
1) Pro Bowl 2) 2nd best, he also had the first kickoff return touchdown in Cowboys playoff history
I just figured since Romo gets blamed for everything, even as a little boy it was his fault.
Good point -- of course by that logic we could also blame it on George Bush!
Jul 1 - Waived: Joe Bob Isbell (1962); Signed: Cornell Green (1962), Tony Dixon (2001); Birthdays: Don Bishop (B: 1960-65, b. 1934), Pat Donovan (T: 1975-83, b. 1953)
Trivia: What was Green's nickname? Green had a "wardrobe malfunction" his rookie year -- what was it, and why did it happen?
I thought #2 was Leslie Haynes because Debbie Bond walked out with the 14 cheerleaders. Bond had replaced Suzanne Mitchell who left because Schramm and Landry were gone. At least that's how I remember it. That was a while ago, though.
The question may be poorly worded but it asked for the name of the DCC director who resigned because of the biker shorts scandal. Debbie Bond is the DCC director who resigned. You are correct that Leslie Haynes replaced Bond.
