Sean Payton HC Saints Vs. Jerry Jones Owner Cowboys
Well if we consider the '09-'10 season round one, Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints are now up 2 rounds to none on the Dallas Cowboys. And now here is the story of the near knockout blow.
From Peter King, Sean Payton and some New Orleans Staff was having dinner at St. Elmo's Steakhouse, Also at this steakhouse was Jerry Jones and his fleet of Cowboys coaches/scouts/etc. Jones called ahead that evening to make sure that his favorite wine, Caymus Special Selection cabernet sauvignon, would be ready to serve when he was there. (for the sake of knowledge, the bottle runs from $130 - $200) Sean Payton also requested that bottle of wine, but there was a problem -- only one bottle left, and Jones had reserved it. Payton wanted it anyways, and in order to not infuriate the Super Bowl winning coach, he got it, and Payton and his men feasted and finished that bottle of wine. To add insult to empty stomachs and full sobriety, instead of just remembering that he stole Jerry Jones bottle of wine, he made the waiter put the empty bottle on Jerry Jones' table with a note that read "WHO DAT! World Champions XLIV, Sean Payton"
