Another Hail Mary: Drew Pearson saves Lombardi Trophy after near-drop during NFL Experience
Dallas Morning News
The sure hands of ex-Dallas Cowboys receiver Drew Pearson prevented what could have been a disastrous start to the NFL Experience.
Pearson’s latest Hail Mary save occurred on an escalator during the parade of the iconic Vince Lombardi trophy into the Dallas Convention Center.
Pearson was holding the trophy when, suddenly and without warning, the escalator he and members of the media were on stopped. Pearson, still holding the trophy, lurched forward and braced himself with one hand on the escalator rail.
But he didn’t drop the trophy.
“I never dropped it. I never dropped anything,” Pearson was heard saying afterward.
