There won’t be a red carpet per se, but if you want to ooooh and ahhhh at the most swank of Dallas sports dignitaries all dressed up with somewhere to go, Tuesday is the night and The Fairmont Hotel is the place. It’s the 42nd annual Dallas All Sports Association’s Annual Awards Banquet, a shindig unprecedented in local star power.
This year’s gala -- you can still get a ticket for $150 a pop -- will include, no surprise here, professional emcee Scott Murray. Award winners are Dick Vermeil (Lamar Hunt Award), Tommy Lasorda (Legends Award), Darren Woodson (Emmitt Smith Award), James Brown (Pat Summerall Award), Ron Springs and Everson Walls (Courage Award) and Dirk Nowitzki (Big D Award). Black ties are optional, as are wisecracks about Bill Parcells. No, second thought, those are mandatory. -- Richie Whitt
