Jerry Jones takes a Shot

Since I'm not sure how many of you listen to sports radio 8 hrs a day, read the LA Times, or read John McClain's blog on the Chronicle, I'm going to share a little nugget I heard recently here on the blog.

Regarding America's Team's new stadium, Jones said "The Cowboys have never been about checkered tablecloths and boots and hats. They've been about glitz and glitter. Leave that other stuff to the Houston Texans."

Ouch Jerry... ouch.

Jerry is a dbag... that kind of successful business genius dbag I wish I was that is... and I'm not really sure Jerry personifies the spirit of Dallas when you think about it, but I just happen to have something that sums the city of D a little better.

Several months back my sister changed jobs in NYC. Instead of a congrats card, gift, etc I told her I'd think of something original. A haiku was the first random thing that popped into my head. It turns out though, writing a haiku is easy, but a decent haiku after hyping up the "original" gift thing, I needed some tune ups. So I went to topics I am opinionated about: TV, stupid people, Dallas... and for the latter, this was born. I've posted it a few places, but here is it's Pick'em debut.
The Metrosex

Crawling with choch-bags
Wealth of false idol worship
And that’s just Mavs fan
I dedicate this one to you and your city, Jerry... because I've been to Arlington... I used to live in Arlington... and you are right, it *is* all about glitz and glitter. Truuuue dat.
