Connections in the Cowboys psychic universe

When I was nine and my love for the Cowboys was just beginning to grow to another level, I heard that the Cowboys drafted a RB named Emmitt Smith. Not having a favorite player and needing one I decided to follow this RB from Florida. Well everyone knows how Emmitt's career turned out and I am always proud to say that I was a huge fan even before the first yard he ever gained. Well life goes on, Emmitt retires, the Cowboys go through some bad years, I get married, have a little boy, and then the Cowboys draft Felix Jones. About this time, my son begins to really notice the Cowboys and his love seems to be growing to another level. He has not watched too many games but he knows a few players already. Over the course of the off season of Felix's draft, my son begins to become more and more interested in him. Honestly I was surprised how much the boy grew to be a fan of the player at such a young age (he was only 4) and by the time the season began it was clear that my son had a favorite player. Now Felix is no Emmitt and comparisons as such are incredibly premature, but there is a coincidence brewing no doubt as Felix seems primed for a big year. All I know is that it would be something special if my son was a huge Felix fan even before he gained a single yard just like his dad was a huge Emmitt fan even before he gained a single yard.  Best of luck this year to Felix, and heres to hoping my son and I can start a family tradition.
