'The Catch' turns 30 today


Thirty years ago, 'The Catch' happened.

Dwight Clark leaped high in the corner of the end zone to snare a Joe Montana pass to give San Francisco a 28-27 win in the NFC Championship Game on Jan. 10, 1982. It was the second of three straight losses in the conference title game for the Cowboys under Danny White.

But is it the most painful memory in Cowboys' history?

Would it be the Ice Bowl loss to Green Bay in the 1967 NFL Championship game?

Would it be Jackie Smith dropping a touchdown pass in Super Bowl XIII against Pittsburgh?

Would it be the day Tom Landry was fired when Jerry Jones took over as owner and general manager?

Would it be the 38-28 loss to the Niners in the 1994 NFC Championship Game that negated a possible three-peat?

Would it be the wild-card loss to Seattle in 2006 when a potential game-winning field-goal try slipped through Tony Romo's fingers?

Would it be the divisional round loss to the New York Giants in 2007 when the Cowboys gave up homefield advantage?

Maybe you'd like to pick the season finales in 2008 and 2011 when the Cowboys lost win-and-make-the-postseason games against Philadelphia and the Giants?

Or maybe it's something not on this list. Have at it.
