Glance away, half a century gone

Watching Cowboy game on Thanksgiving evening brought back memories of their first Thanksgiving game in 1966. Karen’s grandfather in Donie had one of the first color TVs and our date was to go down and watch the first big game in Cowboy history. They defeated the dominant Cleveland Browns and went on to the NFL Championship game, failing in the last few seconds to force an overtime game against the Green Bay Packers. When you glance away for a few seconds, half a century can slip by.
