    Twas the night before Campmas and all through the land
    Not a creature was stirring, except Cowboys fans
    The helmets were set by the chimney with care
    Hoping St. Landry soon would be there

    The Cowboys were nestled all snug in their beds
    While visions of Super Bowls danced in their heads
    and Parcells in his office, and Jerrys nightcap
    we'd just settled in for a long lazy nap

    When out on my rooftop arose such a clatter
    I sprang from the "Post" to see what's the matter
    Away to the window I flew in a flash
    Hoping for Higgs or a Redskin to bash

    The moon off my windshield and the light by the way
    Made it look like the sunshine in the middle of day
    When what do my wondering eyes happen to see
    A miniature sleigh and some great history.

    A Fedora'd ole driver and his bag of starred candy
    I knew very quickly, it must be Tom Landry
    Much better than Eagles his courses they came
    He whistled and shouted and called them by name
    "Now Aikman, Now Staubach"
    "Now Emmitt and Irvin"
    "On Pearson, On Dorsett"
    "On Newton and Witten"

    As great teams to win must learn how to fly,
    and beat up opponents on their way to the sky
    So up to my house top my heroes they flew
    with the sleigh full of rings, and St Landry too.

    And then in a twinkling I heard from their feet,
    The scratching and clawing of each little cleat
    As I drew in my breath and was looking around
    Down the chimney came Landry, staying in bounds!

    He was dressed all in silver from his head to his foot
    His star wouldnt tarnish not from ashes nor soot
    A bundle of titles he had flung on his back
    and he looked like a winner as he opened his pack.

    His eyes how they twinkled, his face was so merry
    I believe he was thinking of Staubachs Hail Mary.
    His gait was as stern as I could ever remember
    While beating the Giants every year in November.
    His fedora sat proudly up on top of his head
    I could feel San Diego filling with dread.
    He had on his rings that his great teams had earned
    For he taught them well and man had they learned.

    I felt like a fool, and a really bad host
    Should I stand here so awestruck, or raise him a toast
    A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
    Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread

    He spoke not a word but went strait to his work
    And filled all the helmets then turned with a jerk
    He flew up the chimney with his usuall grace
    With a smile that stretched clean over his face.

    He sprang to his sleigh, to this team gave a shout
    "You CAN win it all, of this there's no doubt"
    And I heard him exclaim as I wiped at my tear

    dargon king, your ears are still in the devoping phase, as you get older your ears will alter and devlop that natural selective hearing when it comes to the woman in your life...its quite amazing actually, you also learn just when to say uhhuh, oh really, hmmmm, yeah ok, and many other short phrases that bail you out when she looks at you and you realize you havent heard a word of the current conversation.

    ok that was partially a joke, but im sure the ladies on ths board can verify that at times men are awful listeners.
