Roger Staubach really wants you to know how his first pitch went

Needless to say, throwing from a pitcher's mound to a squatting catcher is a bit different than throwing on a five-step drop to a streaking receiver.

Cowboys legend Roger Staubach pulled it off before Game 5, though. The toss may have been -- as he described it -- too low, or a ball, or too hard or on a bounce.

But at the end of the day, one thing was certain: There was a ceremonial first pitch, and Staubach was the one to throw it.
