Oh this just can’t be.
Oh this just can’t be.
Not to be outdone by fellow Triplet Emmitt Smith, now comes Troy Aikman on the new version of Dancing With the Stars show this fall. So now we have jimmy Johnson on Survivor, and Troy on this show. What’s next? Michael Irvin on the Life Channel? Whoo Boy!
Looks like TMZ broke the story here.
Oh wait, now we have conflicting stories.

You would think some people just have luck on their side. You would also think some people just succeed at everything they do. Like Troy Aikman. Isn’t it enough to have won a couple of Super Bowls and have a great career as a sports broadcaster? Now, he hits a hole-in-one at the golf course.
The former Cowboys quarterback shot his very first hole-in-one Wednesday at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano.
Aikman was playing with a private charity tournament when he scored the coup.
The Number 4 hole on the Kings Course at Gleneagles is a par 3.
The next thing you know, he’ll tell us he’s a millionaire. Oh wait.

Emmitt Smith’s run to greatness has finally ended.
Smith, the NFL’s all-time leading rusher, was selected for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, reuniting the Triplets for eternity in Canton, Ohio.
Smith becomes the 12th Cowboy in the Hall of Fame, with fellow Triplets Michael Irvin and Troy Aikman as well as Bob Lilly, Roger Staubach, Tom Landry, Tex Schramm, Tony Dorsett, Randy White, Rayfield Wright, Mel Renfro and Bob Hayes.
The induction ceremony will take place Aug. 7. Jerry Rice, the NFL’s all-time leading receiver, Russ Grimm, Rickey Jackson, Dick LeBeau, Floyd Little and John Randle also were selected.
There really was no suspense in Smith’s selection. In 15 seasons he ran for 18,355 yards and 164 touchdowns. He won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys, earning the MVP honors in Super Bowl XXVIII. He was also named the league’s MVP in 1993. He was named All-Pro four times. He was named to the Pro Bowl eight times. He led the NFL in rushing four times (1991-93, ’95). He had 11 straight 1,000-yard seasons from 1991-2001, which is an NFL record.
While his 1,000-yard streak ended in 2002, Smith broke Walter Payton’s rushing record that season on Oct. 27, 2002 against Seattle at Texas Stadium.
At 5-9, 207 pounds, there were questions about Smith’s durability when he entered the league, but durability proved to be his greatest asset. He never missed more than two games in a season with the Cowboys. He carried the ball a Cowboy-record 4,052 times, including 377 in 1995. Adding his two seasons in Arizona, Smith ran the ball an NFL-record 4,409 times. His 175 touchdowns are second most in league history. He holds the Super Bowl record with five career rushing touchdowns.
Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman has graduated from UCLA 21 years after starring for the Bruins.
Aikman participated in Saturday’s graduation ceremony on the Westwood campus along with 450 other graduates. He earned his sociology degree earlier this year, having left college as the No. 1 pick in the 1989 NFL draft by the Dallas Cowboys.
“I’m glad I came back and went through the ceremony,” Aikman said. “I had some reservations because I didn’t really know any of the other students, but I had a great time and it brought back a lot of great memories of my time here. UCLA is a great place and I’m glad to be a part of it.”
No word if he stayed out all night and went to parties.
