There are officially 69 days until the toe meets the ball at where the will host the on NBC’s .

What a fantastic weekend filled with 100% red, white, and blue! I know that you’re having a great day, unless you’re a fan of Japanese women’s , and I know that you’re pumped for some Cowboys football action. We’re going to get this week started by talking about the Greatest 69 in Dallas !

I’ve done this entire countdown here at , and I’m not going to lie to you guys…this one was tough. 69 isn’t exactly a legendary number in Dallas Cowboys , but the show must go on!

Only one, yes no mas uno, gentleman has worn the 6-9 for longer than one season. Stop and think about that for a second. In over FIFTY YEARS of all 99 possible jersey numbers, the number 69 has only been worn 8 times…7 of which were for one season (and sometimes less)!

George Hegamin was drafted in the of the 1994 . As an offensive lineman, he found himself becoming part of what became one of the greatest o-line rotations in NFL History. He spent a majority of his first few years learning from the best, while picking up a ring in 1995 when the Dallas Cowboys won , and finally broke into the starting lineup in 1996. Hegamin filled in for both Mark Tuinei and at left and respectively. He eventually was replaced by our Greatest 73 Ever, , and left via in 1998. Mr. Hegamin wasn’t part of the Great Wall of Dallas, but he is the Greatest 69 in Dallas Cowboys History.
