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's "personal eyeglasses cleaner" was.
But Anderson has decided to take this moment and capitalize on it by designing and ordering custom eye-glass cleaning cloths and calling them "Jerry Wipes," reports The Dallas Morning News.
"They can also be used for spontaneous shoe shining, if necessary," Anderson told the newspaper. "It started out as a joke, but let's see how far we can take it."
Earlier this week, Jones explained exactly what happened in the suite during a Dallas radio interview.
"Well, one of the things that I would do if I were another human on this planet is not sit near me at a ballgame because you could get compromised by what really is happening," Jones said on 105.3 KRLD-FM's Elf and Slater show. "And, of course, that was Shy Anderson, my son-in-law, who's a vital part of our organization. He was trying to just help his father-in-law where he could see the ballgame. He reached down and say those things need cleaning. He's paying the price on it. We'll figure it out.
"I heard that somebody might need to be shining my shoes up there. Somebody else serving me hors d'oeuvres in between the huddle. We'll get this done right. Had you told me last week that we're going to be able to laugh and smile about this and this would be something fun and notable to talk about, I would have taken that in a minute. I was about to die up there. About to swallow my tongue."

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...
Over the years, there have been a lot of stories coming out about players wasting money. Whether it's Dez Bryant and his exorbitant jewelry bills, or Adam "Pacman" Jones raining down 100 dollar bills at strip clubs, the stories are mind-boggling. Especially to the rest of us who spend our days working hard to earn a mere fraction of the paycheck that professional athletes...
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.
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...
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...
Ridge High (Basking Ridge, N.J.) class of 2014 quarterback Connor Hughes camped at Rutgers and Penn State over the summer and was invited to a game in State College, Pa. He is also hearing from several other BCS schools and he spoke to FOXSportsNEXT about his recruitment.
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...
