Wilford Jones (January 22, 1931 – March 17, 2007), better known as Crazy Ray, or Whistling Ray, was the unofficial mascot of the Dallas Cowboys. By some accounts, he was also the team's original mascot, who attended almost every home game since the team's inception.[1]

History

He started selling pennants at games in 1962 and quickly endeared himself to the Cowboys fans with his western outfits, magic tricks, trademark whistle, and galloping along with a hobby horse. Often he would take the opposing team's pennant and use it as a handkerchief to wipe his head or face.

He was never officially employed by the Cowboys, but was given a Special Parking Pass and All-access for home games. He was also known as the "Whistling Vendor" at Dallas Tornado soccer games, Texas Rangers baseball games, and at the Dallas Black Hawks minor-league professional ice hockey team at State Fair Coliseum. He could be seen at the State Fair of Texas and various concerts entertaining the public.

Crazy Ray also had a special friendship with rival Zema Williams (i.e. *Chief Zee), the Washington Redskins' unofficial mascot.[2] In some photographs, Crazy Ray and Chief Zee were seen pretending to fight with each other during games.

Ray died on March 17, 2007 from heart disease and diabetes, aged 76, in Dallas.[3][4] He missed only three games in 46 seasons.[1]
