Packers receiver James Jones appeared on ESPN’s Highly Questionable to discuss his extremely unfortunate upbringing and the struggles of living the first 15 years of his life in and out of homeless shelters. Jones has used his platform as an NFL star to start Love Jones 4 Kids–a foundation that sponsors a variety of programs for disadvantaged and underserved communities. The interview is pretty fascinating and Jones portrays himself as an eloquent, extremely well-adjusted dude with a good heart.
He also is quite the Casanova, if the story about how he proposed to his wife Tamika is any indication:
“My wife is a big big fan of Red Lobster so she, probably like us all, she loves the bread there, loves the biscuits so I went a day before, gave them the whole setup of how I wanted it. I put the box, the ring in the breads so when they brought the bread out, she took her gum out of her mouth and was ready to eat all seven biscuits that was in the basket and she opened it up and the ring was there and I was already on my knee.”
In Jones’ defense, I would eat the shit out of these things.
Power moves only.
