Pacman the Poet


I suppose I’ve been a little bit hard on Pacman Jones in recent days here.  I’ve let myself get all caught up in the problems he’s had in the past.  I was just really hard on him for the six (or is it two?) arrests in his past.

But the Pacman appeared on Michael Irvin’s radio show Tuesday and discussed his issues and the potential for winding up in Dallas.

"“The best business decision is for me to start somewhere new,” Jones said.“I’m not sitting here telling you I don’t own up to mistakes I’ve made.  I accept everything, the punishment, everything that comes along with the bad decisions and bad choices I’ve made. In the end, I just pray to God I get a second chance.”“This is where I want to be, and hope it’ll work out in the long run and it’ll happen real quick,” he said. “It’s obvious (Cowboys owner Jerry Jones) does give people a second chance. He has a great heart. Hopefully, I can get one of those second chances and I can be wearing a Dallas Cowboy uniform next year.”"

Roger Goodell, the NFL’s sherriff and commissioner, has recently said that Jones’ reinstatement might not come until summer.  He’s waiting to see if there is more trouble surrounding him.

Pacman says there won’t be. He added that no one will see him in any more strip clubs…for awhile, anyway.

"“I cannot say ever, ever.  But I can say they won’t see me [in strip clubs] for the next three or four years.”"

So, he won’t be in the strip joints for three or four years but might go back after that, huh?  Boy, sounds like he’s learned his lesson!  Sorry, but if he felt any remorse for his past actions and the suffering he has caused others he would say it.

And, at least give him credit for retaining his confidence in his abilities.

"“I’m the best. Hands down. As far as the complete package goes, I’m the best.  I can help them win.  That ain’t no problem. I’m good for two wins a year by myself.”"

I can’t wait!  Seeing him on the same team with Me Oh?  Won’t that just warm your heart?  Not to mention the incessant coverage Ed Werder will provide from Valley Ranch on ESPN (The Yankees/Cowboys Channel).  It’s amazing what today’s dollar can provide on cable, isn’t it?

But I’m a little fuzzy on this whole thing anyway.  So, before Werder runs off to Dallas to pucker up to the Cowboys, I gotta ask a question:
