Default My trip to Dallas this week.

Had to go to Dallas this week for my job and I found out that Vallejo was playing at one of the local clubs. Being a fan of theres I decided I would like to go. A group of people from the Dallas office went so I hitched a ride with them, and since I was not driving, spent some time with Tito's before leaving.

We get to the club and Its more of a bar restaurant than it is a club, so we get seated and order some food and more drinks. Now, B/C I feel its my duty to promote the Texans were ever I go I am wearing my Texans Jacket and my Texans hat, mainly to piss off the people in Dallas. So I am sitting there and I can feel someone staring at me and I look up and at a table across from me is an older gentleman, not giving me a look of disgust, but more of a look of "Are you serious?" And his wife, assuming his wife, was giving me more of a "How dare you" look. So I am sitting there and he looks super familiar but I just was not able to place his face. I then ask the people who are stealing my cheese fries why that guy looks so familiar, one of the guys tells me to look at the front of the menu, I look, and its his face. So I was like oh, he owns the place.

The night continues and they finish there dinner with a few more glares from the table, and in return a few gleeful smiles directed back in there direction. They get up and walk past me and I guess there was a bubble in the alcohol to the brain b/c it snapped into my head that was the Dallas Cowboys special teams coach Joe Avezzano. And I just blurted it out at the table rather loudly and the people at the table looked at me like I was stupid. I re looked at the menu, I am at Coach Joe's Bar and Grill.

He was actually a pretty nice guy, he came over later that night and shook my hand and asked if I was having a good time. I thought it was funny.

Oh and Vallejo, awsome band, if you get a chance to see them I recommend it.

Good story and glad you had a good time. Is Tito the decent vodka at a reasonable price? If so, it makes a pretty good martini. I can imagine that Avezzano and his wife were more in awe as it probably isn't every day they see a Texan fan in full uniform and even moreso if he had heard how Texans fans generally loathe anything Cowboys related. By you showing up at his restaurant had to be a deer in headlights moment.

You should have kicked him in the ass and kissed his old lady. It would have made the story that much better.

Seriously, when you said it was an old man I thought the end of this story would be an epic beating of geriatric proportions.

Kudos for hanging tough in the face of the opposition.
