While I hardly expect tight-jawed Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to dust off the Cowboys Stadium welcome mat himself, I certainly hope the game is worthy of the scheduling attention it’s given.
American Indians taught newcomers more than a thing or two during those first few years in this glorious land we now call America, and today the Redskins need to approach this natural rivalry as though the Cowboys owe us a serious debt.
Play good smash-mouth football until them ‘Boys simply say, “Thank you.”
But once everyone and every dish is in place, there’s still one very important message to be conveyed.
For the food and the people who prepared it.
For the health and welfare of those in attendance and of those who couldn’t make it.
For those whose blessings are manifest and those who are still struggling to find their way.
I certainly thank you, too.
