Pacman Jones has a job…for now
Posted by Thomas the Terrible on March 10, 2009
Well it appears that Pacman Jones is gainfully employed, at least for the time being. Jones is one of the “Pros” on the TV show Pros vs. Joes. Since this is Pacman we are discussing it should be noted that he is already causing trouble. Imagine that! So far his “after football” career is starting to sound like a bad Will Farrell movie…
LA Times sports writer Sam Farmer stopped by the set of the show to witness a bunch of wannabes against a bunch of aging and/or derelict former professional athletes. There was an incident between Pacman and former Holy Cross linebacker Dan Adams:
“Anyway, Adams stuck Jones at the goal line, jarring loose the football. It was pretty funny, because Jones had been talking trash to that point, referring to Adams as “Waterboy.” A few minutes after the hit, the two exchanged punches and had to be separated.
“He hit me 10 yards out of bounds, kind of a cheap shot,” Adams said. “I couldn’t sit there and not retaliate. You’ve got to have some pride and dignity.”
As for the oft-suspended Jones, released by the Dallas Cowboys after the season, he didn’t seem too concerned about how he came off on camera.
“I guess that’s the person he wants to be,” Adams said. “But I guess in his defense, people kind of get caught up in the heat of the moment.”
That’s right folks you have to have some pride and dignity…says the guy who is non-ironically a contestant on fucking Pros vs. Joes.
I guess Pacman never actually saw that movie. Everyone knows not to mess with Waterboy. What is he? Nuts? Oh, right. This incident will inevitably lead to the spin-off “Makin’ It Rain vs. Bringin’ the Pain” with Terry Tate.
This is the closest to professional football that Jones will ever get to again. It’s time for the Pros vs. Joes production team to move to threat level orange. For some reason I believe Jones wants to get thrown off the show, that way TNA Wrestling will see he’s a fighter and invite him back to the squared ring.
I doubt it would be legal, but if this show actually degenerates into honest-to-God spontaneous bare-knuckle fisticuffs it could blow up in the ratings.
Forget Pros vs. Joes; just wait until you see Pacman’s upcoming reality series, Pros vs. Hoes.
Rumor has it that Jones also displayed certain tendencies of PTSD, saying after the taping, “You gotta take your shot at Blinky when you get the chance.”
