Mayweather vs Pacquiao: Jerry Jones and Dallas Cowboys support Manny

America's Team is in Manny Pacquiao's corner.

Manny Pacquiao fought twice at Cowboys Stadium in 2010, and that left quite an impression on Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who sent Pacquiao a letter wishing him luck in tomorrow's fight with Floyd Mayweather.

Here's the letter:

Mayweather-Pacquiao will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, where most of the sport's biggest bouts are held, including Mayweather's last 10 fights, and eight of Pacquiao's last 12, with two at Cowboys Stadium and two more recently in Macau.

Personally, I doubt Jerry Jones speaks for the entire organization and roster of the Dallas Cowboys in saying that the NFL team is in Manny's corner. I mean, you figure of everyone, there are probably plenty of people rooting for Floyd Mayweather.

Also, I was going to use a photo of Pacquiao and Jones together up top, but that would have required remembering Pacquiao-Clottey, and I didn't want to ruin anyone's evening.
