Jerry Jones will outlive us all.
This always has been a working theory around these parts, admittedly rooted in a gut feeling rather than tangible medical evidence.
But now ... now we have something to work off. The Dallas Cowboys owner received some very unusual news during a recent visit to the doctor. He shared said unusual news with the media, because, well, that's what makes Jerrah, Jerrah.
"I've been told that I have, by CT Scans, that it's like the brain of a 40-year-old," Jones said, according to The Dallas Morning News. " ... The guy really did not know it was me. I was there anonymously. He said, 'And so I just wanted to come down. I saw your chart. I know how old you are. That part is really impressive.' "
(We like to imagine the doctor racing out of surgery so he can steal a glance of The Anonymous Brain.)
Let's do some math. Jones is 70. His brain -- as we now know thanks to science -- is 40. Extrapolating that data (and assuming proper conditioning and technology keeps the rest of his body in working order), we can safely approximate Jones having a 146-year lifespan.
Of course, that's not factoring in the chance Jerry Jones' brain has gone Benjamin Button. In which case, all bets are off.The "Around The League Podcast" is now available on iTunes! Click here to listen and subscribe.
