Jerry Jones Compares Sitting With Chris Christie To Meeting Nelson Mandela

Since last Sunday, much has been made of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s latest bromance with Dallas Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones. Most of the backlash stems from the fact that the Gov. appears to be a front-runner who wants to be associated with a relevant team rather than supporting his local N.Y. Jets.

However, in an interview with the Dallas Morning News:

Whenever I can get around important or exciting people, I want to do it,” Jones said. “I’ve got a nice little list of sitting with some pretty big winners at some of these key games.

“I know Nelson Mandela, I got to sit with him, and took him to the dressing room, and you can imagine how the players went crazy and coaches, just to meet Nelson Mandela.

“We’ve had some of the top people, the top politicians, President Bush. I’ve had people from many areas that come in and just add to, if you will, just the intensity of the moment. That makes it seem special. I want it to seem special for the ones who aren’t in the stadium as well.”

If Nelson Mandela was a 300-pound white man he STILL wouldn’t be anything like muhfuggin’ Chris Christie!

Somebody make sure Jerry takes his old people meds. Please and thank you.
