Roy Williams' young guest

Don't know what it was all about, but as the Cowboys began their later drills, Roy Williams went over to the north end zone stands and brought out a young fan. The young boy accompanied Williams onto the field, and he's standing back there watching the Cowboys work out right now.

"It’s a thing I started in Detroit – water boy for Roy. It can be a girl, though. It doesn’t matter," Williams said after practice. "It’s just a chance to give a kid an opportunity to get close to the players. He’ll probably remember that for the rest of his life. It’s something I started. I want other guys (players) to see that we have open practices, so they can do the same thing. It’s cool, man. I’d do just anything for this kids, doesn’t matter if it’s a boy or a girl."

It was a pretty cool little deal. Williams hung out with him back there when he wasn't in a particular drill. By the way, Williams wore #11 in the morning practice and was back in #4 this afternoon.

The young fan, by the way, was 8-year-old David Garcia of San Antonio. Apparently, this is something Williams started up in Detroit, bringing a lucky young fan onto the field. Roy was hospitable, talking to and signing plenty of autographs for fans.

Just look at the difference just 20-30 rock solid Tea Party conservatives have made in the House already. They’ve turned “1/3 of the government” on its head and started a war between the establishment party and the Tea Party.

I think greater interaction among groups would result (mix up the tech bloggers and the marketers and the VCs and the usability people and, hell, even the sex bloggers) ;) and really spark some awesome conversations.

Only reason I voted for him was SARAH. I wasn’t even going to vote until he picked her. I had voted in every election since the late 1960?s.

Good for Hannity, hammering Mc Cain. Mc Cain off as so slimey. He completely bought into the Obama narrative and talks about the great calamity to come if there is no agreement, and continues to blast the Tea Party.

It's not that I don't believe Roy Williams when he says he did this in Detroit, it's that I don't believe anyone would actually show up to watch the Lions practice.

The little boy that got pulled onto the field by Roy Williams at yesterday’s practice is my son, David Garcia, Jr. He is still on cloud nine and told us last night that he “pinched myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming”. Talk about an opportunity of a lifetime!!!

The problem…we have no pictures, he went with his uncle and they didn’t have a camera. Is there anyway you could get us some pictures of this memorable moment?

Thank you in advance for any assistance you could provide
