Somebody should have warned Tank Johnson that Texas no longer allows gun racks and open containers in cars anymore. And just because George Bush has moved on to be America's problem, they still execute black men whom they find with guns. So maybe this wasn't the best move.
The deal does make sense from the Cowboys perspective, a team best known for living in the past. Having a guy like Johnson is now the closest the team has been to the old Cowboys who had run amok in Irving back in the early 1990s. Jerry Jones has reached into the nostalgia bank, much like you do when you drunkenly purchased C&C Music Factory's "Gonna Make You Sweat" on iTunes. Jones is probably thinking this move is a lot more practical than having Tommy Agee show back up at Valley Ranch wearing a pair of Zubaz and sporting a high-top fade. Combine this with O.J. Simpson being in trouble again and who else can't control the urge to grab a Crystal Pepsi right now?
Sure they tried to recapture that magic with Terrell Owens, but the old Cowboys would be more likely to have a hooker overdose on drugs, rather than one of its star receivers. Seriously, Michael Irvin always knew what kind of drugs he was putting in his body.
Props to you Jerry, now everybody dance now.
