  • Yes, I heard the story a long time ago. Why bring it up now? Jerry go back to Ark. and take your EGO with you.

    he is also a quitter. he quit on his family and you can't get much lower than that. jj is a POC

    I believe Jimmy. What come out with this now, you ask? Because , Jed has been running his hillbilly mouth telling everyone that he should be credited for those three Super Bowls, not Jimmy. Jimmy got tired of it.
