Yesterday, in order to include the players that have signed new contracts this year, the Cowboys had an evening practice. Aside from the late time, the practice was unique for another reason. Pee-Wee made an appearance. Pee-Wee spent time chatting up Jason Garrett and posing for pictures. Seeing Pee-Wee side by side with Jerry and Stephen was interesting to say the least, but it also brought to mind more than a few questions.
Certainly, it was unexpected to see Pee-Wee at Cowboys’ training camp, but, even more so, it was just surprising to see Pee-Wee Herman in general. After all, it’s been like twenty years since that infamous night when he was caught in a compromising position at an adult theater. Tyron Smith didn’t even know who he was.
Also, you would expect that Reuben hates playing the Pee-Wee character, and, at one point, he probably he did. But, he is apparently okay with reprising the role now. He’s working on a new Pee-Wee film with Judd Apatow.
By the way, Reubens claims to be completely innocent of his misdoings in that adult theater and says there is proof. He’s right-handed!
A couple of pics after the jump. I wanted to include a video, but, apparently, those are sacred and the embedding code is a closely held secret.
