Who was that cleaning Jerry Jones' glasses?

September, 7, 2012
It was a pretty interesting scene in one of the MetLife Stadium suites on Wednesday night.

Jerry Jones, the Cowboys owner/general manager, was sitting with his son, Stephen Jones, watching the Giants-Cowboys game when someone sitting behind them was cleaning off his eyeglasses.

That someone was Jerry Jones' son-in-law, Shy Anderson, who used to run the Arena Football League's Dallas Desperados. Anderson is also in charge of other businesses affiliated with the Jones family.

A video of Anderson taking care of his father-in-law's glasses went viral.

"One of the things that I would do, if I was another human on this planet, is not sit near me at a ballgame," Jerry Jones said Friday on KRLD-FM. "You can get compromised by what really is happening and of course that was Shy Anderson, my son-in-law, who is a vital part of our organization. He's trying to help his father-in-law where he can see the ballgame and he reached down and said, 'Those things need cleaning.'

"But he's paying the price on it. We'll figure out ... I heard somebody said somebody might be shining my shoes up there. Serving me hors d'oeuvres in-between (plays). We'll get this thing right."

Jerry Jones said Anderson has a great sense of humor and didn't take anything negative from taking care of his father-in-law in the suite.
