It was no surprise in our house that Emmitt Smith won "Dancing with the Stars."
He was a god on the football field. #22 was key to three of the Cowboys' five championships that sustain the hubby and I as we wait for the Tuna to get his and the current team's act together. Fittingly, Emmitt's visage once again graces the 'Boy's Web page, along with a separate story on his latest accomplishment.
Plus, he just seems like such a nice guy. And there's that smile! How can anyone resist that smile?
When I heard Emmitt was going to be on the program, as a lifelong Cowboys fan, my initial wish was that he finish higher than former '49er Jerry Rice did last year. As the competition continued, I began to hope for a win. The hubby was confident the whole time; me, I'm a sports worrier, expecting disappointment and then reveling obnoxiously in victory.
Well, it's definitely a roundly reveling kind of day today!
