>>Jimmy: I ALWAYS LIKE TO SEE WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO WEAR WHEN YOU COME OUT, BECAUSE YOU DO — AND YOU’RE PRETTY — YOU KNOW WHAT, YOU’VE TONED IT DOWN A LITTLE BIT. >>A LITTLE BIT HERE TODAY, JIM. I CAME OUT LAST TIME WITH THAT GOLD JACKET ON. >>Jimmy: YES. >>AND THERE’S CERTAIN THINGS WHEN I WEAR IT MY WIFE SAYS, WE WEREN’T READY TO SEE YOU IN THAT, BABY. [ LAUGHTER ] SO, YOU KNOW, I TONED IT DOWN. JIM, YOU GET TO COME OUT — LISTEN, I WAS STANDING BACK THERE DOING ALL MY POSES, PRACTICING. I ALWAYS WANTED THAT SLIDE-OUT DOOR. USED TO GET IT ONCE A WEEK WHEN THEY INTRODUCED YOU FOR THE START OF THE GAME, IT’S THAT MOMENT. YOU GET THAT FIVE NIGHTS A WEEK! MAN. [ LAUGHTER ] I SURELY MISS THAT MORE THAN ANYTHING IN FOOTBALL, I MISS THAT. >>Jimmy: COME OUT EVERY NIGHT, WE’LL LET YOU DO THE THING, I DON’T MIND.>>I WISH, MAN. MY PIMP AT HOME, THAT’S WHAT I CALL MY LIFE — [ LAUGHTER ] YEAH, SHE WANTS ME MAKING THE MONEY, I CAN’T BE WORKING AT A DOOR, YEAH. >>Jimmy: DO YOU MISS PLAYING, MISS BEING ON THE FIELD EVERY WEEK?>>ABSOLUTELY. IT’S NOTHING LIKE — HONESTLY, MI PSSLAYING FOOTBALL, IT’S NOTHING LIKE IT. YOU GOT 53 GUYS AND EVERYBODY’S IN A — WE’RE GOING CRAZY. EVERYBODY’S LIKE — AGGHH! RUNNING INTO PEOPLE, THEN YOU’RE HURTING FOR THE NEXT FOUR DAYS, I MISS THAT LIKE I DON’T KNOW WHAT. >>Jimmy: THAT PART YOU DON’T MISS. >>I MISS THAT TOO. >>Jimmy: YOU MISS THE PAIN. >>I MISS IT ALL. >>Jimmy: INTERESTING. >>I TRAVEL FIVE, SIX DAYS A WEEK, I COME HOME, I SAY, BABE, I MADE IT HOME, I’M SAFE. OKAY, GREAT, I’M SO HAPPY. STOP BY THE STORE. I’M LIKE, ARE YOU JOKING?>>Jimmy: ON THE WAY HOME, PICK SOMETHING UP, YEAH. >>WHAT DO YOU WANT, BABY? JUST SEND ME A PICTURE. AND I DO IT. >>Jimmy: MAYBE THAT’S THE PAIN THAT YOU NOW SUFFER. THAT’S THE NEW PAIN THAT YOU HAVE. GOING TO CVS ON THE WAY HOME. >>SHE DOESN’T SEE THIS JOB AS WORKING. >>Jimmy: I SEE. >>BABY, I’VE BEEN WORKING, ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. SHE SAID, YOU’VE BEEN WATCHING FOOTBALL GAMES.>>Jimmy: SPEAKING OF WATCHING FOOTBALL GAMES, WHEN YOU WERE PLAYING, AND OBVIOUSLY YOU’RE ONE OF THE GREATEST EVER. WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE GUYS, LIKE THE RETIRED ATHLETES WHO WERE THEN ON TV TALKING ABOUT THE GUYS WHO WERE ON THE FIELD? WHAT DID YOU GUYS THINK OF THOSE GUYS?>>AND WE ALL SAY WE DON’T WATCH IT. >>Jimmy: UH-HUH. >>YOU WATCH EVERYTHING.>>Jimmy: YOU DO WATCH IT. >>YOU READ EVERYTHING.>>Jimmy: UH-HUH. >>THEY GIVE A PACKET THAT GOES AROUND THE FACILITIES WITH ALL THE ARTICLES. YOU HEAR EVERYTHING EVERYBODY SAYS ABOUT YOU. I USED TO HATE THOSE GUYS. YOU I’M THAT GUY, YOU KNOW? HE DON’T KNOW WHAT HE’S TALKING ABOUT! HE WASN’T IN OUR LOCKER ROOM! NOW I’M THAT GUY. >>Jimmy: CHIEFS AND NINERS IN THE SUPER BOWL, WHO DO YOU FEEL LIKE IS GOING TO WIN?>>THIS GAME IS SO GREAT, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? EVERYBODY HAS TO PLAY TOGETHER. THERE’S NO INDIVIDUAL ISOLATED SUCCESS IN FOOTBALL. YOU HAVE TO PLAY TOGETHER. SO IT’S NOT JUST YOUR SKILL SET. IT’S ALSO YOUR CONNECTIVITY THAT MATTERS. YOU KNOW, HOW WELL DO YOU PLAY TOGETHER? AND BOTH OF THESE TEAMS PLAY WELL TOGETHER, MAN. HONESTLY, I GOT SAN FRANCISCO. AND IT HURTS ME TO SAY SAN FRANCISCO. BECAUSE I GOT TO DELINEATE BETWEEN MY HEAD AND MY HEART. MY HEAD REALLY SEES SAN FRANCISCO AS THE WINNING TEAM. MY HEART SAYS, YOU DON’T WANT SAN FRANCISCO TO WIN BECAUSE THEY’LL HAVE SIX SUPER BOWLS AND THE COWBOYS ONLY HAVE FIVE, YOU DON’T WANT THEM TO HAVE MORE THAN YOU. BUT I DO HAVE SAN FRANCISCO WINNING.>>Jimmy: YOU HAVE THREE SUPER BOWL RINGS. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] THAT FIRST ONE WAS 1993.>>YEAH, YEAH.>>Jimmy: SO THAT TEAM WAS REALLY MAYBE THE MOST FUN TEAM EVER, RIGHT?>>THERE’S NOTHING LIKE THE FIRST. >>Jimmy: CERTAINLY OF THE MODERN ERA. >>RIGHT, RIGHT. >>Jimmy: WINNING THAT FIRST SUPER BOWL, FIRST OF ALL, WHAT — FORGET THE GAME STUFF. WHAT POPS INTO YOUR HEAD WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THAT DAY, WHEN YOU WERE THERE PLAYING IN THE SUPER BOWL.>>OH, WELL, FIRST OF ALL, WE WENT FROM 3-13 ONE YEAR, 1-15 THE NEXT YEAR, TWO YEARS LATER WE WERE IN OUR FIRST SUPER BOWL. AND IT WAS HERE IN L.A. IT WAS IN THE ROSE BOWL. SO IT WAS HOLLYWOOD ALL THE WAY AROUND, JIM. IT WAS INCREDIBLE, THE SCENE. WE LANDED HERE, WE WERE CRASHING SOME RECORDING PARTIES AND THEY WERE TELLING US, BE QUIET IN THE BACK. WE’RE LIKE, WE’RE THE PARTY! WE’RE THE SUPER BOWL! OF COURSE THEY PICKED US OUT OF THE PARTY. THE ONE THING I REMEMBER MORE THAN ANYTHING IS, ALL OF THIS IS GOING ON AROUND THE SUPER BOWL. WE HAD MICHAEL JACKSON PERFORMING AT HALFTIME. >>Jimmy: WOW. OH YEAH. >>OH MY GOD. MICHAEL JACKSON THEN WAS EVERYTHING, MAN. >>Jimmy: YEAH. >>ALL I REMEMBER, EVEN DURING THE GAME, WAIT A MINUTE, MICHAEL JACKSON AT HALFTIME, MAN, WE’RE GOING TO BE GOING OVER PLAYS WITH MICHAEL JACKSON PERFORMING, YOU KNOW? SO I MUST ADMIT, WHILE WE WERE GOING IN AT HALFTIME, AND IT’S LONGER HALFTIME. I TOLD COACH, I GOT TO GO TO THE BATHROOM. HE SAID, OKAY, ALL RIGHT, GO TO THE BATHROOM. I WENT TO THE BATHROOM, THEN I SNUCK RIGHT ON BACK OUT AND WENT ALL THE WAY OUT, AND I WATCHED MICHAEL JACKSON. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>Jimmy: YOU DID. >>YOU GOT TO BELIEVE I WATCHED MICHAEL JACKSON. WHAT?>>Jimmy: DID YOU MISS ANY OF IT? ANYTHING –>>THE HALFTIME STUFF? YEAH. WHEN I GOT BACK, WHAT’S WRONG? I THOUGHT I HAD A ONE BUT IT WAS A TWO. IT TOOK A LITTLE LONGER. HE SAID, COME IN, I’LL CATCH YOU UP. HE CAUGHT ME UP. >>Jimmy: WOW. >>I GOT TO SEE THE HALFTIME. STILL WENT BACK AND WON THE SUPER BOWL. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] WE WON THE SUPER BOWL.>>Jimmy: GOOD THING. >>I GOT TO SEE MICHAEL JACKSON, YEAH. >>Jimmy: YOU HAD TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE SUPER BOWL AND THE TOILET BOWL. SO YOU HAVE — YOU KNOW WHAT, I HAVE TO SAY, ONE OF THE — YOU HAVE MORE GREAT STORIES THAN ALMOST ANYBODY I KNOW. WE’VE HAD THE PLEASURE OF CHATTING. HAVE YOU THOUGHT ABOUT WRITING A BOOK? BECAUSE YOU SHOULD WRITE A BOOK.>>SO FUNNY YOU SAY THAT. FOR YEARS THERE HAVE BEEN PEOPLE TRYING TO GET ME TO WRITE A BOOK. >>Jimmy: YES, OF COURSE. >>I’VE ALWAYS BEEN AFRAID. I WORK WITH JAN MILLER, WE HIRED A WRITER, EVERYTHING IN CONTRACT. >>Jimmy: OH, CAN YOU GIVE US –>>”MEETING ME AT THE SUPER BOWL.”>>Jimmy: ONE STORY FROM THE BOOK THAT WILL REALLY SURPRISE US, SOMETHING THAT WE DON’T KNOW, SOMETHING YOU DON’T WANT YOUR CHILDREN TO READ. >>THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT I SAID TO HER, OH MY GOD. SHE’S BEEN CHASING ME ABOUT WRITING THIS BOOK. I SAID, THERE’S A LOT OF THINGS I DON’T WANT MY CHILDREN TO KNOW ABOUT YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN?>>Jimmy: RIGHT, YEAH. >>I SAID, I’M NOT WRITING THIS, MY KIDS CAN READ NOW. SHE SAID, MICHAEL, DON’T WORRY, THEY HAVE THIS THING CALLED THE INTERNET, THEY ALREADY READ ABOUT IT.   [ LAUGHTER ]>>Jimmy: THAT’S PROBABLY TRUE. THAT’S PROBABLY TRUE. >>I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT THAT. I WAS LIKE, OH, YOU MIGHT BE RIGHT. YOU KNOW, I NEVER THOUGHT. FOR SOME REASON I THOUGHT I CAN PROTECT THEM FROM SOME OF THAT STUFF. >>Jimmy: NO, NO. >>YEAH, THAT’S SOME SCARY STUFF, MAN. >>Jimmy: LIFE TYLER WAS HERE, HER DAD IS STEVEN TYLER, SHE STILL LOVES HIM. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] SO GIVE US ONE.>>SO — SO YOU’RE SAYING I GOT A LITTLE ROOM FOR ERROR RIGHT NOW?>>Jimmy: EXACTLY, PLENTY OF ROOM. >>I CAN TAKE THAT. OKAY, I CAN TELL YOU. THIS HAPPENED WHEN I FIRST GOT TO MIAMI. THERE’S SO MANY OTHER KINDS OF STORIES THAT I’M GOING TO PUT IN THIS BOOK. WHEN I FIRST GOT TO MIAMI. 15, 17 KIDS. I’M COMING, I’M ABOUT BUSINESS, RIGHT? WE’RE IN — FRESHMEN ARE WORKING OUT IN THE LOCKER — IN THE WEIGHT ROOM. FRESHMEN, THEN SENIORS, OTHER OLDER GUYS COME IN LATER. I’M PLAYING SOME MUSIC IN THE LOCKER ROOM. THE GUY COMES IN, THE WEIGHT ROOM, HE COMES IN, THAT MUSIC PUTTING US TO SLEEP! HE CHANGES IT. I’M LIKE, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? THIS IS FRESHMAN TIME. PUTTING ME TO SLEEP! HE CHANGES IT. I CHANGE IT BACK. I SAY, GO TO SLEEP, THEN, IF IT’S PUTTING YOU TO SLEEP. ALL OF A SUDDEN IT’S A BIG LINEBACKER. ALL OF A SUDDEN HE JUST COMES BACK, PUSHING ME. I GOT SO HOT, MAN. I WAS BOILING OVER. THAT HE DID THIS IN FRONT OF EVERYBODY. SO COACH JOHNSON GETS MAD. HE CALLS US UPSTAIRS. COACH SAID, NONE OF THIS! WE ARE A TEAM! WE WILL NOT BE FIGHTING EACH OTHER, WE HAVE TO FIGHT EVERYBODY ELSE! HE SAID, MICHAEL! I WANT YOU GUYS TO COME DOWN, SHAKE HANDS! I REMEMBER WALKING DOWN. I JUST GOT OUT OF THE GHETTO OF FT. LAUDERDALE. I’M NOT REFINED AT ALL. AND YOU BRING ME DOWN FRONT. AND HE SAYS, SHAKE HANDS! AND I PUT OUT THE LEFT HAND TO SHAKE. AND HE PUT OUT HIS LEFT HAND. AND I GRABBED HIM. RIGHT IN FRONT. YEAH, I SUCKER PUNCHED HIM RIGHT THERE. RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF HIM. [ APPLAUSE ] THEN I SAID, NOW WE’RE EVEN. AND WE CAN BE A TEAM NOW. WE CAN BE A TEAM. >>Jimmy: YOU’RE LIKE SOLOMON, THE WISDOM. I THINK YOUR CHILDREN NEED TO LEARN FOR SURE. >>THEN HE CALLED ME IN, JIMMY JOHNSON, HE CALLED ME IN, MICHAEL, COME ON NOW, YOU CAN’T BE DOING THIS. SON, HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT BOXING? [ LAUGHTER ] COACH, YOU KNOW. BUT I LOVE HIM, MAN. >>Jimmy: I CAN’T WAIT TO READ THIS BOOK. MICHAEL, SUNDAY MORNING, SUPER BOWL SUNDAY, “NFL GAME DAY MORNING,” 9:00 A.M. EASTERN ON NFL NETWORK. THANK YOU, MICHAEL IRVIN, EVERYBODY.

    Sucker punches are extremely dangerous. Not good role modelling.

    I used to hate the Cowboys but watching Michael Irvin (and sometimes Deion Sanders) do commentary has lessened my hate to just mild & sporadic irritation.

    By the time he gets back to his dressing room he might just have 2 Superbowl rings and Guillermo might just have 1 😄

    Michael Irving is a legend and wish he would be full time on First Take with Stephen A. Smith. Ratings would skyrocket anymore
