After all the attention that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones received after last week’s game against the Giants when a man sitting behind him cleaned off his glasses for him, it looks like he’ll now make a profit off the situation.
The man who was cleaning Jones’ glasses was his son-in-law Shy Anderson who will now look to profit from the situation.
After days of ribbing about the incident, Shy may get the last laugh with a new product that will soon be offered in the Cowboys’ online store. He has designed and ordered eyeglass-cleaning cloths with the words “Jerry Wipes” printed on them.
“They can also be used for spontaneous shoe shining, if necessary,” said Anderson.
“Absolutely,” he said. “It started out as a joke, but let’s see how far we can take it.”
I’m not surprised at all that someone within Jones’ family is looking to make a profit off of something as silly as this.

It was great having football back last weekend! Drafts are over and the craziness that was week #1 is now in the books. Now comes the hard part. Deciding which of the several breakout stars of week 1 to grab or just leave alone. However, the pickups made before week 2 are usually the most important for grabbing potential studs. Study carefully...
You have probably already made your mind up about Dallas Cowboys starting QB, Tony Romo. He is usually one of three things to NFL fans: He is a very good quarterback who probably won’t win the Big One (remember when people said this about a certain pair of Manning brothers?), or that he is an [...]
Previously on Outside the Boxscore, we featured a video of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones getting his glasses cleaned by his son-in-law, Shy Anderson.
Well, it looks like that Jerry got the joke and has decided to cash in on the humor of it all. The Cowboys will start selling Jerry Wipes to help clean your glasses, seriously...this is real:
After days of ribbing about...
With an extra few days to work with, let's spend one morning pondering the building of the roster from a game-day perspective. Not only must a team decide how it is going to work its way down to the 53 players that they exclusively own, but they must also then sort through the injuries, match-ups, and game plan to determine which 46 they bring to the sideline on Sunday.
Mike Jenkins said Wednesday that he feels no bitterness toward the Cowboys for adding two starting cornerbacks in the off-season.
The 27-year-old former Pro Bowl cornerback was the only team member that didnt attend voluntary off-season workouts at Valley Ranch, leading to speculation that he was unhappy with the additions of Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne.
According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, even though Cowboys tight end Jason Witten played in last week’s opener against the Giants, it doesn’t mean he’s in the clear just yet.
“Even though Jason Witten played in last week’s regular-season opener at the New York Giants 23 days after suffering a lacerated spleen does not mean the seven-time Pro Bowl tight end is 100 percent...
An embarrassing moment on national television for Shy Anderson might end up with him getting the last laugh.
After NBC cameras caught the son-in-law of Dallas Cowboys Jerry Jones cleaning Jones' eyeglasses in the owner's suite in New York during the teams games against the Giants, Anderson quickly became a viral joke by the next morning.
Everyone wanted to know who Jerry...
Tight end Colin Cochart was waived by the Cowboys. Cochart was claimed on waivers from the Bengals on Sept. 1 and kept on the 53-man roster in case tight end Jason Witten couldn't play in the opener at New York. Cochart wasn't needed because Witten played, and he didn't travel with the team to New Jersey. The Cowboys did not make a corresponding move to fill the...
Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express News reports Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh missed practice Monday because of concussion-like symptoms. This according to Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The official game summary from last weeks 24-17 win over the Giants credited Sensabaugh with two tackles from scrimmage and one special-teams stop.
Nose tackle Jay Ratliff sat out practice Wednesday as he continues to rehab a high ankle sprain.
Look for him to sit out another week and possibly return for the home opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sept. 23.
Safety Gerald Sensabaugh returned to practice Wednesday after sitting out Monday because of concussion-like symptoms. Although he worked on a limited basis, he said...
After playing 78 percent of the Cowboys offensive snaps in the teams 24-17 victory over the New York Giants last week, tight end Jason Witten participated in practice Monday.
While Witten appears to be in good condition less than a month after suffering a lacerated spleen Aug. 13, the Cowboys are being cautious with the seven-time Pro Bowler.
I think we have to monitor...
Last Wednesday, during the NFL season-opening game in where the Dallas Cowboys beat the New York Giants, owner Jerry Jones and his son-in-law Shy Anderson were the butt of countless jokes because of Jones having Anderson clean off his glasses.Today, Jones and his son-in-law are trying to get the last laugh by profiting off the moment. The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Jones...
Dallas – Momentum: No team needs a better start to their season than Dallas, and no player needs a better first few weeks than Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Every week 1 game for Romo is like starting a new diet or fighting adolescent acne…it needs to go well early for him, or it’s not going to go at all. Not to overstate a single win, but that divisional victory over...
