A few months ago, I wrote off Jerry Jones for cutting Pacman Jones and Tank Johnson, two Cowboys players who had a penchant for mixing it up with law enforcement. This wasn’t the Jerry Jones I grew up with…the Arkansas hellcat who bet on players like a riverboat gambler. Where was the appetite for risk that had made him such a successful owner to begin with?
Well, after a night of carousing at the George Strait concert at the opening of the Cowboys’ new stadium, Jerry Jones returned to his old form and opened the door for Pacman to be given a second fourteenth chance. In the wee hours of Sunday morning, after the concert was over and perhaps after Jerry had had a few too many, he reportedly asked a writer from the Fort Worth Telegram : “Would you beat me too bad if I brought Adam back?”
If I’d have known that all it took was some social lubricant to grease the wheels, I’d be on the next plane to Dallas with a bottle of Tanqueray and a couple of tumblers. Hell, I’d even bring some of that medicinal shit so Jerry could really open his mind. Barry Switzer, Deion….does anyone have Leon Lett’s number?
