Troy Aikman HOF* teleconference

What - you thought I'd let this opportunity to post a link about Dallas on AMCG? Silly, silly person...

Troy Aikman held a teleconference with the national media to discuss his upcoming Hall of Fame (HOF) induction. His career numbers and the impact that he had on the Cowboys during the 90's, is without equal - three SB wins in 4 years is an amazing accomplishment, to say the least.

On top of this, he's definitely a class act, as evidenced by his comments, but in particular, when asked about the Triplets, he replied:

I'm glad you asked about that. And, you know, I said it when I retired, that that moniker for us, it was something I was always extremely proud of. And I was proud to be a part of that group and with those guys, and our relationship is very strong. It was when we played. It still is to this day. The thing that's special for -- I think the reason it's so special for all three of us is that, first of all, we were all just one year apart. Michael came in '88. I came in '89 and Emmitt came in '90. And we really did not enjoy any success without the other guys. So we enjoyed our successes at the same time with each other, and after Michael left, I played one more year. Emmitt played a couple more years with the Cowboys after I left, but our careers, no question, are very much linked together.
