When I think of Roger I think of not only a great Football player but a Vetern of the United States Navy and one great man!

Congrats with the player set

College buddy of mine used to work for Stabuach's real estate company in Dallas a few years back. I had him ask Roger to send us a signed photo way back then. SMR says they go for $50. I have no idea where it is. If I find it, who wants it?

A childhood memory:

The only time I have ever been in the State of Texas was in the winter of 1978. My grandparents and I were flying to Vegas to meet with an aunt, uncle and cousin. Snow grounded our flight in Dallas. I remember asking my grandfather, "Where are we?" He said we were in the same city where the World Champion Cowboys and that great quaterback Roger Staubach play! Even though I was not specifically a Cowboy fan, I knew exactly who he was referring to, even at age 7! \:\) Congrats on your accomplishment!

What I always found funny is that my father was in the army but always rooted for navy in the army/navy game because of Roger Staubach.

Growing up I remember a quote from Roger while being interviewed by, I believe Phyllis George. Something like, I like sex as much as the next guy, I just like having it with the same women.

I have liked the Cowboys since 71 Super Bowl{i was only 6 but my brother was 9 and a Dolphins fan}he kept flaunting how the Dolphins were going to kill Dallas and of course I had to root against him!! My father who loved the Eagles hated Dallas with a passion but always admire Roger because of his service and commitment to the Navy.

I remember that quote, it was during all the hype over Namath. Rog was a classic along with Landry, Tex Schram, Lilly, Meredith, Drew Pearson, Lee Roy Jordan, Walt Garrison, Duane Thomas and on and on....those were some classic years.
