Just over two weeks ago the Dallas Cowboys drafted Ezekiel Elliott with the 4th Overall Pick. Cowboys fans near and far are hoping that the selection of Zeke will serve Tony Romo and Dez Bryant in the same way that Emmitt Smith did Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin.
If that’s the path that Zeke is destined for then it is a Hall Of Fame one. Emmitt Smith’s career records are too numerous to name, but I did so almost a year ago when he was named the Greatest #22 in Dallas Cowboys History.
While that day, poetically August 22nd, served as an opportunity to shower Emmitt Smith with love, today – Emmitt Smith’s 47th Birthday – is just as great of a chance to show some affection!
Happy Birthday, Emmitt Smith!
The NFL’s All-Time Leading Rusher was indeed born today, as was his son! How cool is that?!
Feeling blessed on this day & also wishing a happy birthday to my son, EJ!
It’s been a great week for the Smith family as last weekend was the Emmitt Smith Charity Invitational. It was a great time for an even greater cause. My Dad was there and even caught Emmitt’s approach shot to 18 right before he made birdie.
Phenomenal shot by @EmmittSmith22 on #18 today for a tap-in birdie! @SmithCharities #ESCI16
