Billy Crystal: Dallas Cowboy for a day

DALLAS, TX The native New Yorker said "This isn't gonna play well in New Jersey" as he put on a Cowboys jersey with his name and No. 9, the same number as Dallas quarterback Tony Romo.

Crystal is in Dallas through the weekend for performances of his show "700 Sundays."

He spent part of Tuesday offering pumpkin pie and visiting with diners, serving up one liners such as "How about this Cowboy?"

Crystal, who's a renowned fan of baseball's New York Yankees, said he wanted to pitch in because he admires the Cowboys and the NFL franchise.
