Tributes To Dandy Don

The term "one of a kind" certainly fits Don Meredith. Jeff and Hazel's baby boy as Meredith used to say was Texas to the core and lived life carefree.

Now that "Dandy Don" has left us the tributes are pouring in and many are as entertaining as Meredith himself.

Dale Hanson reflects on Meredith's life including a great story from Cowboy great Cliff Harris (Thanks WFAA-TV)

Current Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett remembers Don Meredith. (Thanks Dallas Morning News)

Dandy Don's signiture was signing "Turn Out The Lights" on Monday Night Football. Two years ago when Meredith's jersey was retired by his alma mater SMU a 70 year old Don Meredith sang one more rendition.

Rest in peace Dandy Don, the party has just begun in heaven.
