Few moments can send the conniption needle into the red like a Jerry Jones ad airing late in a Cowboys blowout. But there he was, hawking caps during the 4th quarter of a Monday Night Football ad break while his Cowboys were being knee-capped by the Bears.
A few commercial breaks after he danced for pizza.
Can you think of a successful GM who cuts ads every year?
Has Ozzie Newsome ever cut a spot?
Has Jerry Reese? Or Ted Thompson? Or Kevin Colbert?
Probably not. They’re too busy building their teams into perennial contenders.
Seeing Jerry, the one ad that makes sense is that retired Southwest Airlines campaign — “Wanna get away?”
When he appears, I certainly do.
