At first glance no one will mistake Jerry Jones for a leprechaun. His accent isn’t exactly Irish, and he certainly wouldn’t be caught dead in a green suit (what with green being the primary color of a certain team from Philadelphia). Take a closer look though and Jerry comes out looking more like a little green goblin than one would expect.
First, many of Jerry’s players over the years, like leprechauns, have proven to be more than a bit “mischievous” off the field. Often GM Jerry rewards those same players with a figurative pot o’ gold.
Leprechauns are often said to be excellent shoemakers, and though Jerry will never be confused for a cobbler he’s certainly made enough friends in the shoe industry to last a lifetime. Anyone remember when Texas Stadium was seemingly emblazed with Nike swooshes at every turn?
While no one can claim to have seen Jerry toting a leprechaun-like jug of moonshine around, we certainly know he does enjoy the sauce. No one needs to be reminded that his “any of one of 500 coaches” comment happened following a long night of boozing.
Finally, Jerry may not appear on boxed cereal and in commercials imploring people to find his “lucky charms,” but he wouldn’t be caught dead without his own lucky charm – a gaudy, over-the-top super bowl ring. I dare you to find a picture of Jerry without one.
So this St. Patrick’s day think of Leprechaun Jerry and spread the word that removing him as general manager is the only way for him to get another lucky charm he so covets.
