Jimmy Johnson, Dallas Cowboy Coach
Jimmy Johnson, when coaching on the college level, had a wife and the appearance of a marriage because it was expected of college football coaches. The wife and family was needed for social occasions. The day he was named head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, he set about to rid himself of this excess baggage. He threw her away like yesterdays newspaper. He didnt need her any more and he didnt lose any time in losing her. He confessed that he never bought his boys birthday or Christmas presents. He just didnt have the time, and they werent a priority. So he single-mindedly threw himself into his football team, and in January, 1993, he made it to the top, #1, they won the Super Bowl.
So whats he going to do next year, and the year after that, and (In 1995 he was sacked, lost his job as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. The last I heard, hes being considered as a TV football commentator. The question hell have to answer every day of the rest of his life is this, was it worth it?)
