The fourth jeffpearlman.com book giveaway

OK, so my wonderful wife keeps saying, “When are you gonna stop blogging about your pimples and start blogging about the, ahem, Dallas Cowboys and, ahem, your book?”

Point well taken.

So here’s my segway: As the fourth (and best) jeffpearlman.com book giveaway, I offer this: I have compiled a list of the 10 players I consider to be most vital to the 90s Dallas Cowboys’ vast successes. Post your own list here (in order of importance), and the one that comes closest to matching mine wins a freshly minted copy of “Boys Will Be Boys,” as well my DVD (which I used for research) of the history of the Cowboys—as well as a used, one-of-a-kind Jeff Pearlman tissue.

Here’s a hint: My list does not include Babe Laufenberg.
