IRVING, Texas – Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones spent Wednesday morning at the dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Center at SMU.
He admitted to some angst about not being at Valley Ranch for at least part of the day before the first round of the NFL draft, but after taking in the sights and sounds of a historical moment Jones was glad he went, even if he ended up with a sunburned face.
The five living presidents were in attendance: President Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter. Jones is friends with Bush and Clinton, and Bush has attended numerous games at Cowboys Stadium.
“Knowing what I know, no, I never would’ve forgiven myself for missing it,” Jones said.
