For those of you complaining about your 9-to-5er (or reading this at work when you should be, well, doing something), ask yourself if you could pull off Jason Garrett's gig.
With just days to prepare for Thursday's Thanksgiving Day clash with Miami, Garrett hot-footed it from the Tarmac to team headquarters, spending the next 20 hours or so in preparation.
"I have been a part of this game a lot in a few different capacities, so the biggest thing we try to do is get to the preparation for the next game quickly," Garrett told the The Dallas Morning News.
