As you probably realized, I was being facetious with the title. I don’t actually expect anyone to remember a blog I wrote three years ago about March 11 being declared “Larry Hagman Day.” Because, well, I didn’t even remember until a co-worker reminded me of said blog.

But since we’re remembering, happy Larry Hagman Day!

I’m sure there are plenty of “Dallas” fans who can appreciate a nod to the CBS drama featuring oil magnate J.R. Ewing, or even the more recent TNT show in which Ewing’s legacy continued, since the native Texan and actor Larry Hagman and his castmates played a pretty big role in giving Dallas its global claim to fame.

If you have a pair of cowboy boots, today would be a good day to wear them.
