Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says CAT Scan reveals he has the ‘brain of a 40-year old’

(USA Today Sports Images)
Dallas Cowboys fans who are prone to questioning the sanity of owner Jerry Jones, please take note: Medical science says you're way off base.

Jones, 70, apparently told the Dallas Morning News that he has the brain of a man 30 years younger. And wouldn't we all like to have one of those?



“I’ve been told that I have, by , that it’s like the brain of a 40-year-old,” Jones crowed. “…The guy really did not know it was me. I was there anonymously. He said, ‘And so I just wanted to come down. I saw your chart. I know how old you are. That part is really impressive.’”

Jones is at the nerve center of the Cowboys, from top to bottom, and he has shown no signs of slowing down. Age apparently is no matter for the man who recently said that Tony Romo (who is 33) has an offensive mind on par with Saints head coach (and former Cowboys assistant) Sean Payton, who is 49. And Jones green-lit the acquisition of defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, who is a venerable 73.

Lest you think Jones has lost his touch during a period in which the Cowboys have won two postseason games since 1996, Jones begs to differ.

“I know more about what I’m doing than hopefully I did 25 years ago,” he said, referring to the time he entered the NFL as an owner.

Recently, Jones' son, Stephen, who has taken on an increased role in the running of the franchise, said that the Cowboys have the "secret sauce" to win championships (plural) again. If you ask Dad what the recipe for said sauce is, it apparently is coursing through his veins, like some kind of naturally produced youth serum. And that means that neither Jones is likely to go anywhere anytime soon.

Isn't science cool, Cowboys fans?

9. So does that mean, 30 years ago when he was 40, he had the brain of a 10 year old?

Not something I'd want to brag about, as a grown adult in the business world.
