    Do NOT discuss politics at all in this thread!

    That includes innuendo, hints and every other thing you think will get around it.


    If you do, your account will be benched!

    I love some Roger. Is this award like the American version of a knighthood? Seems odd so long after his military service to be honored for something. Maybe because he is such a success story? Undoubtedly,an inspiration to many, including myself.

    Couldn't be more proud to have such a fantastic American play for the cowboys, his sacrifice to put his personal dreams on hold for the benefit of the country shows how selfless he was.

    Great man, great American and great cowboy, proud he wore the star

    A well-deserved honor for Roger. Imagine his career if he didn’t have to serve 4 years in the military after graduating from the Naval Academy.

    Maybe Dak should have gone to the Army for four years. He'd be a rookie in 2020.

    Will a living decendant of Ruth be accepting the award on his behalf?
