The Cowboy Connection.
Walt Garrison, former Dallas Cowboys fullback, used to make a tidy little sideline income plugging smokeless tobacco.
Today the Cowboys' rookie quarterback (Troy Aikman) gives a silent endorsement for chewing tobacco every time he appears in a postgame interview. Or is this just a pinch of bubblegum between his gum and lip?
I wonder how well he'll be able to call signals with cancer of the mouth. Spit it out, Troy, before it's too late.
