Pacquiao comes bearing gift for Jones
By Calvin Watkins
GRAPEVINE, Texas -- Manny Pacquiao wanted to take care of Jerry Jones on Tuesday afternoon.
Manny Pacquiao helped ease Jerry Jones' wine woes with a message in a bottle.
So before a quick workout at the Gaylord Texan Convention center, Pacquiao gave Jones a bottle of wine.
It wasn't just any bottle of wine.
At the NFL scouting combine two weeks ago, Saints coach Sean Payton took a bottle of wine reserved for Jones at a trendy restaurant in Indianapolis.
Payton wrote a note taunting Jones about the Saints' Super Bowl victory and left it in place of a bottle of Caymus Special Selection -- a cabernet sauvignon.
Well, Pacquiao replaced the bottle Payton jokingly took.
As Jones and Pacquiao posed for pictures, Jones patted the bottle and said, "We had a great time with this one once."
