He's always been Captain America. These days Roger Staubach has evolved into a different kind of hero: Super Man.

As in, he's the face of Super Bowl XLV, coming to North Texas in 2011.

Sat down with the former Dallas Cowboys' quarterback a couple times recently to find answers to these burning questions:

*What do you really think about former Dallas mayor Laura Miller, and could Dallas have pulled off hosting this Super Bowl?

*Which Super Bowl ring do you wear the most?

*What will XLV's economic impact be on the Metroplex?

*Would you ever jaunt to Las Vegas for a day trip during football season?

*And who oh who is this mysterious alter ego - "Mr. Carney" - of yours?

Happy reading.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
