“Barry Switzer, our coach, used to tell the team, I’m your wagon master, we’re back in the covered wagon days, we’re going to California. We’ve got to cross the Mississippi River to get there. A lot of you are gonna die. We’re gonna have new faces as we go along the way, we’re gonna burn some of these wagons for firewood, float the Mississippi with others. This train is gonna get to California. I’m gonna try to be on it; I hope you’re on it.“

This whole scenario is as confusing as Jerry’s words. The whole thing makes no sense, but that’s usually the case when it comes to Jerry.

Well, who in the world do you think that person when they walk through the door and say, ‘We want to get this player, what in the world do you think I’m going to do? I’m going to say, Show me everything about the player before I write the check. Well, rather than that, I get involved in it and know everything about about the players before they get to the door. That’s a better way."

Jerry’s intention was to use a term from his oil and gas business days to get his point across. The problem is most people think of something totally different when they hear the term glory hole. Needless to say fans, media and late night TV host had a field day with this one.
