    In 1966, Jerry Jones Tried to Buy the Chargers From Paris Hilton's Grandpa

    This week's Sports Illustrated has a profile of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. The profile doesn't break a whole lot of new ground -- it mostly goes over the big investment Jones is making in the Cowboys' new stadium -- but here's one tidbit I didn't know:

    As a 23-year-old in 1966, (Jones) nearly bought the San Diego Chargers from Barron Hilton with money he didn't have. (Jones had arranged for a letter of credit from a labor union.) "You sure are young," Hilton told Jones.

    The sale didn't go through, but we could ask a lot of hypothetical questions about Jones buying the Chargers -- how might pro football have been different if Jones had been an owner since before the AFL-NFL merger,
    how might the Cowboys have been different if Jones had never come along, etc. But my question is different.

    What if Barron Hilton, who is the paternal grandfather of Paris Hilton, had never gotten out of the football business? And what if Paris had inherited the Chargers? I can only imagine what kind of criteria she'd use in determining which players to offer free-agent contracts.

    well, we might have 5 trophys to brag about. But I hate Jerry Jones so passionatly that I might have to strike him about the face if I ever met the douche.

    And I would totally hit Paris if I had the chance. And by hit I mean have sex with her in all her slutty glory.

    If Paris was the owner we would have drafted Vick, who would now be on trial for organizing "Lap-dog fights". Tinkerbell would
    get PWNT. Also Paris would be supplying the blow, which would bring Michael Irvin out of retirement.

    I would too. I mean, I'm not into really skinny chicks, but I'd throw her a shot for about or a week or two, and then move on.

    I wish the Cardinals took that name.
    Hearing this would NEVER get old... "We're here live inside the Pink Taco!!!!"
