Shaun Suisham Was Happy For Mike Sellers (And Hunter Smith Too)

Posted by Matt Terl on November 18, 2009 – 4:30 pm

We’ll get to the part where kicker Shaun Suisham WAS happy in a bit, but this story starts elsewhere: Suisham had read on some obscure blog somewhere that Hunter Smith had no intention of throwing him the ball on the touchdown play that ultimately went to Mike Sellers, and he was not pleased.

“I talked to Hunter about that, because I wasn’t happy,” Suisham told me today, trying very hard to look stern and serious. “I left him a voicemail. My wife told me it was on the website. After further discussion, he says he was joking, and he was hoping the tone came through in the article. So we settled that, and I’m okay with it now.”

It’s Dallas week, and thanks to the win at home on Sunday, it actually feels like it matters. Over at the Redskins.com mothership, the estimable Larry Weisman has composed a nice retrospective of the Redskins/Cowboys feud; it’s worth reading as a whole, but here’s the section that stuck out for me:

Back in the early 1980s, before the Cowboys began their slide into mediocrity, Dallas Week roused the D.C. area. A radio station went so far as to print dart boards with a picture of [then-Dallas head coach Tom] Landry covered by concentric target circles – don’t doubt me, I still have one on my desk.

And it was. I borrowed it and scanned it to share with all of you. Weisman tells me it was distributed with a dart, and if you click the picture for a larger image, you can see the holes where the dartboard was actually used.

Weisman can’t be sure, but told me he thinks the radio station doing the handouts was 107. Given the timeline and the number, it had to be Q107, one of the great pop music stations of my childhood. Which is really only relevant for two reasons: Read more »
