Quote from: Mr. Mysterious on February 14, 2022, 05:36:19 PMThis post reminds me that Roger Staubach who played quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys from 1969-1979 is a devout Catholic who I believe attends the TLM in the Dallas, Texas area. Staubach, who turned 80 this past February 5 is also a graduate of the US Naval Academy at Annapolis, a Heisman Trophy winner, Super Bowl MVP and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2018.It was Roger Staubach who coined the phrase "Hail Mary" pass. In a memorable playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings in 1975, with seconds on the clock and the Cowboys trailing 14–10 Staubach launched a 50-yard pass to wide receiver Drew Pearson who caught the pass and strode into the end zone for a 17–14 victory. After the game Staubach said he threw the ball and said a "Hail Mary". Since then any last-second pass to the end zone in a desperate attempt to score a game-winning or tying touchdown is referred to as a "Hail Mary" pass.
