Twenty Years Ago Today, the Dallas Cowboys Destroyed the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVII

If the pains of the past three seasons are still too much, don’t continue reading. Just skip ahead to watching Michael Jackson’s Halftime Spectacuganza. I’m watching it with fresh eyes – I was eight when it first aired – and it’s glorious. Multiple Michaels, a lightshow during daylight, James Earl Jones, everything.

As for the game, a few reminders:

- 52-17
– Troy Aikman was 22 of 30, for 273 yards and four touchdowns
– Emmitt Smith ran for 108 yards and a touchdown
– Michael Irvin caught six passes for 114 yards and two touchdowns

Dry your eyes, mates.
