When Jason Garrett showed up on the screen at the Dodgers world series, many Cowboys fans were pretty annoyed to see the Cowboys head coach taking in a leisure activity, when his team is struggling this season.
Owner and general manager Jerry Jones disagrees.
The Dodgers’ 3-2 win in 18 innings (the longest game in World Series history) was played in Los Angeles on Friday night, during the Cowboys’ bye week.
The fact that Garrett sat behind home plate for Game 3, spending part of his time with country singer Brett Paisley, instead of devoting that time to breaking down his team’s issues did not sit well with Jimmy Johnson based on perception.

Look, a guy has to take time off, but rather than draw attention to yourself, maybe find another activity that won’t out your downtime to the entire world.
Just a thought.
