Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder selling pizzas?
By Dan Graziano
Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder were in Arlington, Texas, on Wednesday to shoot a commercial for Papa John's Pizza that will likely air during the Cowboys-Redskins game Sept. 12. Dan Steinberg of the D.C. Sports Bog has obtained several photos of the shoot from Papa John's Facebook page if you're interested in seeing these "bitter" rivals find some common ground.
"Only Papa John's Pizza can bring the Cowboys & Redskins together!" said the Facebook page.
It's hard to believe these two organizations spent so many years hating each other when all they really needed was a moderately priced pizza with a bit too much tomato paste. Actually, Snyder and Jones have become good friends over the years. For the most part, the NFC East owners all get along, although Eagles owner Jeff Lurie won't go out of his way to spend time with Snyder.
But perhaps Papa John Schnatter, the man who conducts taste tests in our neighborhoods, can bring Lurie and Snyder together.
