Leon Lett Finally Apologizes for His Cowboys Blunders. Sorta. With a Snickers.

Categories: Dallas Cowboys

Cowboys - Thanksgiving93.jpg
Got this letter the other day, from "The Desk of Leon Lett":

Even though I have three Super Bowl rings, made two Pro Bowl appearances and recorded 22 sacks during my 10-year NFL career, I'm only remembered for two mistakes. Including one monumental mistake I committed on an icy Thanksgiving Day in Dallas.

You know the blunder I'm talking about ... I don't need to remind you.

But I'm telling you that it wasn't my fault. I was only doing what my coach asked.

Ears perked. Curiosity piqued. Go onnnnn ...

To play hungry. I thought he meant to literally play hungry!

Gotta admit, I fell for it. Hook, line and Snickers.

For years Lett remained silent about showboating too soon and having a touchdown swatted away by Buffalo's Don Beebe in Super Bowl XXVII and about his inexplicable attempt to recover a blocked field goal against the Dolphins in Texas Stadium the following season.

At Super Bowl XXVIII in Atlanta he started sweating profusely and literally ran from questions and off the field during Media Day. Now with his college degree and back in the game as assistant defensive line coach during Cowboys' training camp, apparently he can now joke about both episodes.

   My friends at Snickers are helping me rectify nearly two decades of pain and anguish. ... Hopefully you'll encourage your readers and listeners to watch my film so they'll not only forgive me, but also forget that sad chapter in my life.   Sincerely, Leon Lett

Funny. Even cameos from former Cowboys' teammates Darrin Smith, Russell Maryland and Chad Hennings.

Perhaps Tony Romo should become a fan of candy bars?

Look at all these little dweebs. Why aren't you fools writing your own sports blogs? Oh wait...I know why. YOU CAN'T!  Cause you guys aren't professional sports writer like Richie. You guys ain't shit. You ain't nada.

That's what I'm talking about. RW, you're a lock for a cut-paste Pulitzer right there.

I don't care much for regular snickers, but the frozen Snickers, now that is GOOD.

Wilonsky already posted this yesterday. What the hell, Whitt? There's so many great things to write about. What a waste of a good platform. Just like your radio show/station.100,000 Watts! A shitty 1.8 rating. The fact that you're a full failure brings me some comfort. You deserve it. I'm not even going to nutkick you on your hair plugs or shoe lifts today. Your laziness is rubbing off on me. I'm out of here. Meh!

This buffet gets worse and worse everyday. Tomorrow's Whitt's End better be some top sirloin with a loaded baked potatoe to make up for all the pb&j and Ramen that RW served up this week.

Typical Thursday-O-Meh here in the Sportatorium. There's starving real writers who would appreciate both a Snickers and this gig.

Hook, line and snickers? Goddamn Joe Tone should be fucking fired for putting up with that double fucking crap shit.

Pretty outstanding job of stealing Wilonsky's post from yesterday. Looks like you forgot to read my reminder in the comment section though. Three mail in posts today RW. Sit back and admire your work. http://blogs.dallasobserver.co...

Probably the stupidest thing I've read. Not sure if I blame you, Leon Lett, Snickers or myself. I shouldn't have clicked into this post.

Your bit still sucks.

Go back to the week Richie was on vacation and failed to line up someone to write here. We dweebs did a damn good job of writing our own unpaid content. And stop giving Greggo a bad name, shitbrick.

Remember, they're "moving in the right direction". Don't forget now! *Wink*

So next someone will come on saying the Fan has better ratings then someone will say they won't then someone will say they do then tomorrow Richie will bring up ratings in his W's End. Yep, seen that before.

Nice work spelling "potato", Dan Quayle. Are you sure you should be criticizing someone else's writing?

You need to get laid. Bad. You want me to get Sybil to come over and take care of you?

click the edit button, you can correct that when asshats complain about spelling and grammar, yet don't give Richie, the paid professional, any shit about his.

You suck at "comprehend".

He was criticizing Richie's WRITING, not his SPELLING.

I'm not a professional writer dummy. I spell words wrong occasionally. You'll live.

You'd maybe have a point if each of my comments have said it was the dumbest thing ever. I haven't though. Where's your peg leg at? (hint - it ain't in Texas)

Shut up. You're defending the indefensible. Richie deserves every nutkick he gets.

Done. How much does the Observer pay Richie?   I hope it's not more than a $1.00 a month. They deserve better than this.

My bad. Spelling is not a part of writing. You dumb motherfucker!
