Pacman Is Reinstated & Chilling At Hooters

NFL commish Roger Goodell has reinstated Cowboys cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones.

He was chilling at Hooters having lunch when Calvin Watkins of the Dallas Morning News broke the news to him.  Calvin’s blog post on the news is hilarious.

This is great news for the Cowboys who can plan their 53-man roster knowing they will have #21 to play cornerback.

Give Pacman credit for doing all the things the commish asked him to do.  He earned his way back to the league after sitting out the entire 2007 season for violating the league’s conduct policy.

Also, give credit to former Cowboys Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin who lobbied for Pacman to come to the Cowboys and worked with him to get his image straight and get involved in the DFW community.

Jones told the Dallas Morning News,

“It feels good man, you know, to get a second chance and I just have to take advantage of it,” said Jones. “First and foremost, I don’t want to let myself down, definitely my little girl down. I’m thankful for Jerry [Jones], the fans in Dallas and my teammates for believing in me. I need to keep doing what I’ve been doing to get reinstated, staying with myself and my teammates and staying away from those knuckleheads and just stay focused.”

Jones was asked if he ever thought this day would come.

“I never thought it would take this long, but I’m just glad I’m getting another chance.”

Did Tony Romo Lose 2.5M In Las Vegas?

Deadspin.com has a story that claims Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo, lost 2.5 million gambling in Las Vegas and his girl Jessica Simpson was not happy with about it.

Cick here for the rest.

This is part of the Robin Leach…the Robin Leach’s blog:

It began when Jessica, Tony and the players all hit the Peacock Lounge for high limit blackjack. Jessica was said to have won $5,000 and then they retired to their penthouse while the others went onto the Body English nightclub. The couple even spent some time tanning in the sunshine rays at the new $8 million makeover pool at the Hard Rock while watching the NFL draft on their private cabana HD TV screens. At some point, however, allegedly Tony, who was rumored to be paid a $15,000 appearance fee at Body English took the money and went gambling. My spywitnesses tell me that by the time he was finished he’d lost a fortune and I swear to you I was told that the figure could have run as high as a whopping $2.5 million. Whatever the staggering loss totaled it immediately put a damper on their fun weekend. I’m reliably told Hard Rock officials offered to pay Jessica a bonus $25,000 if she’d co-host at Body English the second night with Tony.

Allegedly a livid Jessica refused because she’s paid far more for personal appearances and the fun weekend had suddenly turned into a commercial gig. Also she was said to be “angry beyond words” over his gambling and the large loss. Insiders told me that one thing led to another and they wound up in a “furious fight.” I was then told that instead of turning up together for a third day of “fun in the sun” at DMX’s party for the re-opening of the Rehab summer pool they both left town unexpectedly. Luxe Life is still checking hard to find the full facts amongst the wicked whispers and racy rumors and trying to establish if they left together or separately, but as one person told me,” I wouldn’t be surprised if this love match is on the rocks—and over”!

I’d hoped to have the full report of the Rehab re-opening, but all the details and photos weren’t assembled before our early deadline, so click back tomorrow and maybe we’ll have more Jessica and Tony soap-opera story lines for you.
