|Jones says that Shariff 'lived up to your expectations of competence and mental health.' (US Presswire/CBS DFW)|
Shan Shariff is a Dallas sports-radio personality who works for 105.3 The Fan, a decidedly pro-Cowboys station. But he's not originally from Texas. He grew up in Cambridge, Maryland, attended American University and even interned for George Michael (Sports Machine not Careless Whisper).
So it's not altogether surprising that Shariff is a Redskins fan. What is surprising, however, is that he played "Hail to the Redskins" Tuesday during Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' appearance on the aptly named Jerry Jones Show.
This all stems from Robert Griffin III's fancy debut win over the Saints.
You can listen here. If you want the short version, see below (courtesy of Sports Bog):
“Sing it with me Jerry, c'mon!” Shariff said of 'Hail to the Redskins.'
“Terrible,” co-host, Jasmine Sadry, countered. “You're alone, son, you're alone.”
“What do you think, Jerry?” Shariff asked. “Couldn't I do that yesterday on the home of the Cowboys? Isn't that justifiable for one day?”
“Well let me just say this: You've lived up to your expectations of competence and mental health,” Jones said.
“Jerry just called you an idiot!” Sadry said.
“He is an idiot, I agree with you,” Jones said.
Psychological evaluations aside, Jones spoke glowingly of RG3's performance.
“I was very impressed and he certainly showed a lot of poise” he said. “His athletic ability, his speed … it's something I don't look forward to the Cowboys competing against.”
No word on if Jones was Griffining while he made these remarks.
