    OXNARD, Calif. – When you’re Jerry Jones, you get to do a lot of cool things. Sometimes you get to guest-star in TV shows. Other times, you build the most lavish and extravagant football stadium in the NFL. But when it comes to dealing with fans, one small act can create the experience of a lifetime.

    One such event happened on Sunday, the first day of the Dallas Cowboys' training camp. The famed owner came out to sign autographs for the throng of fans assembled at the practice field fence, and at one point he handed over a Super Bowl ring he was wearing to two fans.

    Robert and Michael Whitaker are brothers who made the trip down from San Jose, Calif. and each ended up with a picture of the jewelry on their finger. The two are die-hard Cowboys fans — Robert has a tattoo of a Cowboys helmet on his right shoulder — and Jones undoubtedly made their day.

    "It felt like he recognized us, because we're here every year," Robert said. "He put his ring in front of my face, so I was all, 'Jerry you’re blinding me, Jerry you’re blinding me!' And he says, 'You wanna kiss the ring?' And I was all, 'Jerry I don’t know if I could do that much. Can I just rub it?' "
