Happy Veteran’s Day

On behalf of everyone at Lone Star Struck we would like to take some time to remember and honor all of our brave servicemen and women that have served and continue to serve our country.

Each Veteran’s day we have an opportunity to recognize the amazing people who make up the greatest military in the world.

We would also like to extend our condolences to the families of all the victims of the recent tragedy at Ft. Hood. The sadness of that day serves as a reminder of just how fragile life truly is both at home as well as overseas where we continue to defend democracy.


God Bless all of you for your unwavering loyalty, patriotism, integrity and courage.

Happy Veteran’s Day!

Michael Irvin is OK

Today I was on the Cowboys website and could not belive this when I seen it and I thank god Irvin is ok.

Former Cowboys great Michael Irvin apparently avoided a dangerous situation at a redlight in North Dallas Monday night.

 Irvin filed a police report stating a passenger in an adjacent vehicle flashed a gun after he rolled down his window. Recognizing the Hall of Fame recevier, the men instead began talking about the cowboys with Irvin and eventually drove away peacefully.

 On his radio show Wednesday (ESPN 103.3 FM) Irvin shrugged off speculation that the police report was merely a publicity stunt.

 “I was a little bit worried – I was a lot bit worried – about what else was going to happen with those guys, what else they were doing,” Irvin said. “The way they got back on the highway said to me, ‘Maybe we’ll find somebody else since we couldn’t do that there.’ So yeah, I went ahead with it (the report).

 “I don’t have another strike to give. So trust me, I wouldn’t fill out a false police report.”

 Who could have ever guessed that Irvin’s ball play on the field would eventually save him from some dangerous car-jackers who just happened to be Cowboys fans. I myself am very pleased that Irvin is ok and was able to come away from this situation unharmed.

A Thanksgiving Message to StarStruck Friends

I would like to wish all of you a happy Thanksgiving. I will be traveling to Dallas to be with my family, Thursday through Saturday. I will not be around to talk about the game or update the website, however a friend will be covering for me. Everything should be back to normal by Sunday.

I am very happy to be spending the holiday with my HUGE Cowboys family. We will definitely be gathered around the TV cheering on them ‘Boys wearing our jerseys just like you! God Bless and Go Cowboys!


A Football Player’s Nightmare

I know he is not a Cowboy, but I would just like to say our hearts and prayers go out to Kevin Everett of the Buffalo Bills. Kevin was injured during the football game Sunday and will likely never recover. He suffered a spinal injury that will leave him paralyzed.

I know football is a competitve sport but you never want to hear of anything like this. God Bless the Everett family and I hope that in his lifetime he will witness that miracles can come true and someday he will walk again.


Bledsoe Announces Retirement

Drew Bledsoe announced his retirement Wednesday, April 11, 2007. Bledsoe played in the NFL for 14 years, spending the last two with the Dallas Cowboys. He ranks fifth in NFL history in passing attempts (6,717) and completions (3,839) and seventh in passing yards with 44,611.

"I feel so fortunate, so honored, to have played this game that I love for so long, with so many great players, and in front of so many wonderful fans," Bledsoe said in a statement issued by his agent. "I fulfilled a childhood dream the first time I stepped on an NFL field, and the league did not let me down one time. I retire with a smile on my face, in good health, and ready to spend autumns at my kids’ games instead of my own. I’m excited to start the next chapter of my life."

Drew Bledsoe started all 16 games in 2005 as his first year as a Cowboy. In his second year, he was replaced by Tony Romo during halftime in Game 6. Bledsoe never played again but remained the offensive captain for the rest of the season.

Despite the way his career ended, Bledsoe was a Cowboy. We want to thank him for his hard work and dedication in Dallas. Bledsoe is a admirable man, he held his head up and watched from the sidelines while people booed him and Tony Romo took over. I think the way he handled it says alot about his character. Drew, we wish the best in all that you do! God Bless.
