    Last year I took my kids to Disney, and because they are still young we went to Main St. and got ready for the daily parade. I had forgotten all about the Superbowl which had just been played. Well, there was Bettis at the end of the parade followed by his parents in the car behind him. That must have been a great feeling for them. Glad his dad got to enjoy that. BTW, Emmitt Smith was also in one of the last cars. Don't know if that is tradition or what.
