I remember I met ALL-PRO wide-receiver Drew Pearson through my brother who knew several Cowboys. Drew had already retired...and the Cowboys were busy winning Super Bowls in the 90's. Drew Pearson unequivocally... is one of the nicest guys I've ever met "ex-jock" or not. So we were talking and I reminded him (Gerard and I at least agreed there was "pushing off" by both he and Paul Krause) of the 50 yard catch he made against the Vikes to advance us to the NFC Championship Game against the Rams. Roger Staubach threw the "Hail Mary" pass out of desperation and Drew caught it....remarkably on his hip. I said, "Drew, Roger was not the only one saying a "Hail Mary" that day!" Like the true gentleman he is....he said, "Oh, maybe yours was the one that did it"~
I liked Drew Pearson but I couldn't stand Hollywood Henderson.
