Jerry Jones gets emotional

April, 11, 2010
IRVING -- The demolition of Texas Stadium on Sunday morning was emotional for the Jones family.

Charlotte Jones, the daughter of Jerry Jones was crying as was her daughter Haley. But Jerry Jones, the man who owns the Cowboys, also teared up as he watched the stadium come down.

Jones sat next to Bruce Hardy, the long-time general manager of Texas Stadium, who is now a senior consulant for Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.

"When that roof started coming in it was sad," Jones, with a tear in his right eye, said. "That's about all you can say with that. It certainly wasn’t fun."

Calvin Watkins joined in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
