Jerry Jones wants what?
During the news conference to mark the opening of Cowboys training camp, Jones was rambling on about the importance of veterans such as Tony Romo and Jason Witten who "have excelled and been outstanding but not gotten the ring" to share their tales of disappointment with the younger players on the roster. Jones called it a reminder for him.
"I’ve been here when it was glory hole days and I’ve been here when it wasn’t," Jones said. "Having said that, I want me some glory hole."
The press conference was delayed for several seconds while the media in attendance snickered like school kids.
Just before the conclusion of the conference, Cowboys public relations chief Rich Dalrymple attempted to clarify what Jones meant by "glory hole," explaining that the term is a commonly used expression in the oil and gas business, the industry in which Jones built his wealth.
"And that's news to me," Jones deadpanned.
