It's been a long time since the dynastic Cowboys of the 1990's, so it was great for fans in Big D to see two-thirds of the triplets back together over the weekend.

On Saturday, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin linked up at the National Sports Collector's Convention.

"Double trouble 22 and 88!!!!" Irvin tweeted, tagging Cowboys Nation.

Fans reacted to the picture of Emmitt and the Playmaker on social media.

"The game just hasn’t been the same without these two," a Dallas fan replied.

"Man I miss you 2," another said. "Big time players that showed up and showed out in BIG TIME GAMES!"

"Greatness!!!!" another Cowboys fan tweeted.

"Name a better Duo??!!" another asked.

"Now THAT’S 'Dem Boys.'
