This Day in History January 3, 1983

I am the first to tell you that sports means virtually nothing to me.  I will tolerate football, but I can very happily live without it.

But on this date in 1983, Tony Dorsett of the Dallas Cowboys made the NFL record books with his 99-yard touchdown run!  But true to the lovely Cowboy spirit, they still lost!  I know that at one time the Cowboys were a good team, but although I lived there for many years, I am still not a fan.  The closest thing to a fan I ever was was when I lived near Tampa, Florida, and Tony Dungy was the Buccaneer's coach.

This is still on the record books--it has been tied, but it has not been broken, and it is believed it never will be.

  1. I am not a football fan- but that sure was an amazing touchdown. I guess he did all he could to help his team. Wow! I can't even imagine running that fast!

    Thanks for sharing! Also- thanks for following my blog. I am now following you back.
