Barry Church’s toothache is making for a pretty sweet week.
After the Cowboys safety hurt a tooth on a Jolly Rancher and had to miss a day of practice for a trip to the dentist this week, the people who make Peeps whipped up a deal for him.
How ‘bout some of our nice, soft marshmallow candies for the whole season?
“Haha, I can’t believe that!” Church said.
Believe it. The company publicized a letter it sent him and the Cowboys this week, so look for Church to get reacquainted with a childhood favorite.
He laughed again. He couldn’t believe one wrong bite led to so much attention for his tooth.
“I was thinking nothing of it,” he said. “Next thing I know, I’m tackling a Jolly Rancher in one picture I saw.”Yep. This picture. As seen on USA Today's "Shutdown Corner" football blog.
