Dallas Cowboys' star wide receiver Dez Bryant headlined the Sports and Get Fit Expo Sunday at Sunland Park Racetrack and Casino. Bryant spent two hours signing autographs and taking pictures with Cowboy fans. The free event began at 11 a.m. and continued through 5 p.m.
"I always like to say this is the biggest sports event party we throw in El Paso with the health screenings to get your blood sugar checked or your blood pressure checked. It just makes for an event everybody be part of," said Steve Kaplowitz, host of Sports Talk on 600 ESPN.
Bryant said he was surprised to see how many Cowboys fans were in the Borderland.
"As soon as I got out of the truck earlier, fans were everywhere and I saw a bunch of 88's. It just gave me butterflies. It was like I was getting ready to walk into the stadium and go play a game," said Bryant. "It's crazy how the fans are showing the Cowboys support. You just want to do whatever you can possibly do to support them back the best way you can."
