NFL Football fans from all over the country took a moment to clap before the Sunday action began, when Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, told Jimmy Johnson that he would be entering the team’s Ring of Honor on December 30th.
Johnson coached the Cowboys in the 90s and was responsible for their golden era, resulting in multiple Super Bowl Championships during a time when all time greats like Troy Aikman, Emmit Smith, and Michael Irving, were all wearing stars on their helmet.
It was Johnson that coined the “How about them Cowboys?!” catchphrase.
The thawing between Jones and Johnson after so many years is closure for a Cowboys fan base that has been trying to restore those glory years since Johnson and successor, Barry Switzer made them champions,and some believe it could even remove a curse.
Here is the announcement..
The time has come 👏

On Jimmy Johnson’s induction into the #Cowboys Ring of Honor this December:
“I wanted to do it this year. I feel like the time is now.” – Jerry Jones
Jimmy Johnson with the tongue-in-cheek reply:
“It’s also the time because I’m still alive.”
