How To Get An Interview With Jerry Jones
Jean Jacques Taylor was a Cowboys beat writer for the Dallas Morning News from 1995-2005, and has since been a columnist on the D-FW sports scene for the Morning News and ESPNDallas.com. When in a pinch, Taylor knows better than most how to get the attention of the Dallas Cowboys’ owner.
Here’s Taylor’s account of an episode between himself and Jerry Jones from earlier in training camp.
This happened the other day, when I was trying to catch up with Jerry, who was about 5 feet ahead of me, for an interview
ME: Jerry! Jerry!
ME: Mr. Jones! Mr. Jones!
No response. And now, I’m desperate because he’s about to leave the field area.
ME: Coach Jones!
Jerry stops and turns around.
ME: I knew that would get you. I didn’t want to pull it out, but you made me.
All Jerry can do is grab my hand and start laughing
