The owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, appeared on a radio show where he talked about his team’s amazing performance. Dallas has grabbed the ticket to playoffs because of their outstanding performance throughout the season. While chatting about all the success that his team is experiencing, the 80-year-old struggled to breathe and hilariously controlled the situation.

The business tycoon made an appearance on Shan & RJ via 105.3 The Fan. Jones talked about how he is interested in bagging the Super Bowl-winning wide receiver, Odell Beckham Jr., on his roster. While he was giving details about the potential deal, Jerry Jones had a fit of wild cough. He gasped for air and tried to calm himself. The host of the show tried to confirm if the Los Angeles native was okay.

Immediately Jones made light of the situation. Out of exasperation, he said, “Get me some oxygen! Better still, how about a big shot of Jack?” The show went on successfully after that uproarious interval. However, did the GM of the Dallas Cowboys get his big shot of Jack?

Did Jerry Jones get fazed by OBJ’s plane incident?
