Mavs & More: Luka Doncic Deal & Top Dallas Sports Stories of 2021

WHITT’S END: 12.31.21

Whether you’re at the end of your coffee, your day, your week or even your rope – OR, IN THIS CASE, YOUR YEAR – welcome to Whitt’s End …

On the final day of the year, I present my Top 21 DFW sports stories of 2021:

21. SELF-HELP – In a year dominated by mental health awareness, Cowboys legend Roger Staubach spoke out in January for the first time about his daughter’s life-long struggles.

Another Cowboys’ quarterback – Dak Prescott – also continued to be vocal about mental health issues, detailing his own struggles during HBO’s Hard Knocks in August and voicing support in September for U.S. gymnast Simone Biles after she quit the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

20. FROZEN – During February’s Winter white-out in which DFW endured ice-covered streets and record-low temperatures below 0, we were all trapped inside with … no local sports on TV. Because of transportation logjams and power-grid failures, neither the Dallas Mavericks nor Dallas Stars played a game for an entire week. In a 12-month span, the Mavs had games canceled because of a pandemic, a protest and a polar vortex.

19. CHECKERED FLAG – For my money, the best GM in DFW called it quits in May.

Eddie Gossage took control of Texas Motor Speedway in 1995, two years before it hosted its first race. During his 25-year run he transformed TMS from a desolate pasture north of Fort Worth into one of the jewels of auto racing.
