Emmitt Smith, Hall of Famer

Emmitt Smith is headed to the hall of fame. Hardly a surprise, but still great news. He fell to the Cowboys because many scouts thought he was too small and too slow to make it in the NFL. Now he's in the Hall of Fame. (And he won Dancing With the Stars, too. What a stud! ;-)

Jerry Rice also made it in the first year of his eligibility, to the surprise of no one. John Randle, Russ Grimm, Rickey Jackson, Floyd Little and Dick LeBeau are the others being inducted this year. Worthy players all, but as a lifelong Cowboys fan, Emmitt is dearest to my heart. Not least because he seems to be such a good guy. At least, he's never been arrested (unlike some of his teammates from those championship years).

Busy day today, and I'll be posting photos and such later, but I just had to offer my congratulations to one of the heroes of my youth. Way to go, Emmitt.
