SAN ANTONIO -- Pee-wee Herman made a surprise appearance at practice in what can be described as an only-with-the-Cowboys moment.

Pee-wee Herman
Pee-wee Herman visited the Cowboys' evening practice at the Alamodome on Thursday. He met with a number of players -- including Tony Romo and Jason Witten -- and met with owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett.
Pee-wee met a number of players, from Tony Romo to Jason Witten, as well as coach Jason Garrett. He took a picture with the Joneses -- Jerry, Stephen and Jerry Jr.

“[Kyle] Kosier pointed him out midway through the two-minute drill,” Witten said. “I’m like, ‘Kosier, are you watching practice or are you seeing Pee-wee Herman.’ The problem is only like three guys in the huddle knew who he was. The older guys know Pee-wee Herman. I think Tyron Smith looked at him like, ‘Who’s that?’ He didn’t know him. Gosh, I’m showing my age. I used to be one of the young guys.”
