At JerryWorld, the Closest Most Of Us Will Get to Reality is "Perception"
The Los Angeles Times this morning heaps piles of praise upon Jerry Jones' under-construction EnormoDome in Arlington, which Sam Farmer coins the "Y'all Mahal," a nickname that will never, ever stick. Still, the piece does contain two classic Jerry quotes, the first one concerning the $1.2 billion price tag: "The Cowboys have never been about checkered tablecloths and boots and hats. They've been about glitz and glitter. Leave the other stuff to the Houston Texans." And the second's about the fact most of us will never step foot in the joint, mostly because we can't afford it: "The majority will enjoy it through the perception of the stadium." Cannot argue with that. --Robert Wilonsky
