Roger Staubach: Dallas Cowboys Great Presents Lombardi Trophy To Packers
Roger Staubach, For the Record, Has Nothing To Do With the Green Bay Packers Organization
As you no doubt have already noticed by now, Super Bowl XLV is over. It was the Green Bay Packers coming away with the win, as they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers by a final score of 31-25.
As FOX broadcaster Joe Buck so adequately put it, the Lombardi Trophy is coming home.
Nevertheless, the manner in which the Lombardi Trophy was handed over to the organization has a lot of people scratching their heads, as it was presented to the Packers by Roger Staubach, the Hall of Fame quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys.
While Staubach may very well be a Hall of Famer and a fine ambassador for the NFL, the question is obviously why it was him presenting the Lombardi Trophy and not somebody like, say, Bart Starr.
One supposes that the venue must have something to do with this, as it makes sense that Jerry Jones would push for a Cowboys great to have something to do with the proceedings at Cowboys Stadium. But of course, that's just a theory, and your humble narrator has no intentions whatsoever of starting any kind of controversy.
Regardless, the whole exchange just felt a little awkward, and all involved parties seem to realize it as well.
Oh well. It was a good Super Bowl, and you get the sense that a good portion of the country is more than thrilled by the fact that the Packers were able to come away victorious.
