One full-time Cowboy, and one part-time Cowboy, will be heading into the Hall of Fame today.

It's almost time for some real fake football. The Cowboys and the Dolphins meet up in the 2013 Hall of Fame game tomorrow night at 8 PM EST on NBC. But before that game takes place, there is some business that the Hall of Fame must take care of tonight, and that is the induction of the 2013 Hall of Fame class. The Cowboys have one player going into the Hall, that is uber-guard Larry Allen. In addition, even though he will be going in as a New York Giant, coach Bill Parcells will be inducted. Parcells coached the Cowboys from 2003 through 2006.

It's a great honor for Larry Allen, one of the all-time best linemen to ever play the game. Allen was strong, nimble and versatile, basically everything you could want in a lineman. Check out KD's review of Allen's career here. Parcells was here for a relatively short time, but played a crucial role in changing the entire culture of the Cowboys. Rabblerousr has a retrospective here.

So sit back and enjoy the ceremony and the speeches. You can view them on ESPN2 or on the NFL Network.
