Cheer Up, Tommy Lee Jones! You're Now in the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame!
Speaking of Fort Worth, the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame inducted its class of 2009 last night with a wingding on E. Exchange Ave., and among those taking their bows were Tommy Lee Jones and the great Barry Corbin, who actually has a place in Fort Worth. Said Jones, a St. Mark's grad, "This is the first time in all my long years of award-winning that I wish my granddad could be here." As it turns out, Jones was not inducted for his work as the Barnett Shale's drillmaster or as a coffee-drink pitchman in Japan, as recently captured in the above photo by the Flickr-ing elaine a. Dude looks like he's having a very Suntory time.
