The video clip lasted but a few seconds, but it reinforced why the owner of the Dallas Cowboys should not be the general manager of the Dallas Cowboys.
On the red carpet before the start of the 2014 Academy Awards, comedian Mindy Kaling was being interviewed when, right behind her strolling into the Kodak Theater, is the general manager of the Dallas Cowboys with his bride.
Cameras must not have been able to catch a view of Ozzie Newsome, John Schneider, Ryan Grigson or the other GMs of the NFL as they walked into to watch the Oscars.
Suspend the idea that the other NFL GMs were all hard at work on Sunday night trying to improve their football team. They were likely watching Hollywood's annual back-pat, and you can bet had they scored an invite to the awards they would have gone with their SO just like Jerry. If the other GM's weren't watching, they were taking it easy and relaxing.
That a wealthy person scored an invite to the Oscars is no big deal. That Jerry wanted to attend the Academy Awards is no surprise - no one loves stars more than Jerry.
When the Cowboys' practice facility collapsed in April of 2009 - the day of rookie minicamp - where was Jerry? At the Kentucky Derby, just like the every other NFL GM. His appearance on Sunday in LA is just more proof that Jerry's interests, and time, are so widespread there is no way possible for him to be an effective GM.
Too many fish, meet frying pan.
