Dallas Cowboys

Your Sports Owner: Mark Cuban vs. Jerry Jones

Both have more money than Sri Lanka, wealthy enough to buy this blog with the change in their car's ash tray.

They are each passionate, energetic, innovative, way smarter than me and absolutely consumed, dare I say obsessed, with bringing a championship to Dallas.

In the last couple years their teams coughed up No. 1 seeds, home advantages and painfully clear paths to titles.

In their most recent games, one's team lost by 34 points; the other's by 38.

They are philanthropic: One favoring the Salvation Army and one the Heroes Foundation.

Each has had a hand in building a state-of-the-art sports facility that will bolster their legacy for decades to come.

They both found themselves defending players this season: One Pacman Jones and the other Josh Howard.

And just this Fall they collaborated to bring the NBA All-Star Game to the Metroplex in 2010.

So I ask you, Dallas sports fan, who's the better owner:

A) Mark Cuban.

B) Jerry Jones.

C) None of the above.
