My Heroes have always been Cowboys...part 2

In his book Reflections, Bob Lilly captions one photo of Don Meredith recounting the story of a flight back to Dallas following a game. The turbulence was tremendous, even the Stewardesses were afraid. Don Meredith was sitting towards the back with some of his “gang” drinking beer (Lilly was included in the group).

While several thought the plane might be going down and were fearful, Meredith just turned to Lilly and calmly said: “Well, it’s been a good ‘un, ain’t it?”

UBER COOL… and no one but Dandy Don could pull it off. Or for that matter many of the successes of the early years.

You were one of my heroes Dandy. Rest in Peace. Yeah, it really was a good one.
