Jerry Jones is the oil-rich, egotistical, impulsive, stubborn and immensely hated owner of the most valuable franchise in professional sports — the Dallas Cowboys. You know him, and if you're not a Cowboys fan, odds are you loathe him.
Over the years Jones' outspokenness and love of the spotlight has rubbed plenty of people the wrong way. He pissed off the Cowboy faithful from the very start when he fired coaching legend Tom Landry...
He makes his son-in-law clean his glasses...
And in perhaps his most egregious act, he appeared on Entourage.
Nevertheless, despite all his faults, there is something bizarrely and surprisingly likable about Jerry Jones. Let me explain:
1. He really, really wants the Cowboys to win.
2. He's confused about the definition of a "glory hole."
3. Selena Gomez adores him.
4. He's boys with LeBron and Hulk Hogan.
5. His celebrations are hilarious.

6. He's not above drunken fan pictures.
7. He's comfortable with being widely disliked.
This is not always a good thing. Sometimes people are unpopular for good reasons. But there is something to be said for being able to take the harshest and most public criticism without getting gun-shy. It's not a coincidence that Chris Christie and Eminem are both Cowboys fans.
