Last week, the NFLPA and owners gathered for what were supposed to be secret meetings. The meetings were held at the Hotel Baker in St. Charles, Illinois in an effort to come closer to an agreement. The meetings were held for multiple days and once the word of these meetings leaked out and the media was aware of them, there was a specific NFL owner who decided to leave — Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Jones apparently wanted to listen to music. Hotel manager Rowena Salas told Jones to check out McNally’s Irish Pub.
He was at the pub for a few hours and was the “life of the party.”
“He bought a few drinks; he took pictures with people,” McNally’s doorman Mark Davis said. “He was very nice to everyone.”
Now, before people make this into a bigger deal than it really is, I think it should be made clear that Jones was just having fun. There is nothing wrong with that. Who wouldn’t want to go out and let loose with a few drinks after being locked into a room discussing a new collective bargaining agreement?
And, hey, I’m glad Jerry was the life of the party. That’s much better than being the brooding loser in the corner of the room.
