If the Mavs-Thunder somehow doesn't do it for you, how about some Colonial golf out in Fort Worth or even a basketball game played by football players?

After delivering a eulogy for his dear friend Ron Springs at his Carrollton funeral this morning, former Dallas Cowboy Everson Walls will help host a cool charity event tonight at Euless' Trinity High School:

Ballin' With The Boys III.

With the game dedicated to Springs, it's a good cause. And with a fascinating roster and an after-party hosted at Duke's in Bedford by none other than a band known as Martellus Bennett & The Moonshine Kids, should be an intriguing night.

Besides, with the lockout still lingering, you're not going to see your Cowboys anywhere else. When I was a kid there was nothing cooler than watching Drew Pearson dunk as a part of the old Dallas Hoopsters.
