Cowboy Fans Say Goodbye to Crazy Ray

 

 

The Cowboys will honor Crazy Ray on Saturday with a public memorial service at Texas Stadium on Saturday, March 24 at 10 a.m. Donations are being accepted for the family at http://www.savecrazyray.com.

The team will also pay tribute to Crazy Ray at a 2007 home game, yet to be announced. His wife of 53 years, Mattie, will be honored on the field as everyone pays their respects to the Cowboys biggest fan. The Cowboy’s schedule is expected to be released in a few weeks.

Crazy Ray lived for the Dallas Cowboys, entertaining fans for over 4 decades. He became a well known Dallas Cowboys icon and was even enshrined into the fan’s wing of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. His spirit will live on whenever the Cowboys take the field. I guess it’s true what they say, Old cowboys never die, they just ride off into the sunset.

Who Dat?

Dat Nguyen is back at the ranch! He has been named assistant linebackers/defensive quality control coach. Nguyen, a former linebacker, played for Dallas for seven seasons (1999-2005) before being forced into retirement due to a neck injury. He was one of the best who ever played at Texas Stadium and the first Vietnamese American to play for the NFL. He lead the team in tackles three seperate times in 2001, 2003, and 2004. Nguyen finished his career with 516 tackles in sever short seasons, which includes being sidelined 2 different times for half the season because of seperate injuries.

It will be nice having Dat back with the team. Its a wonderful thing when a professional athlete can return to the sport that they love and be a part of that team’s success. Nguyen is the second former player to be added to the coaching staff this offseason. He will join Jason Garrett, who was hired as an offensive coach.

 Welcome Back Dat!
