Great man...he sat down next to my wife & I at the Music City Bowl in 2005

at the VAF party the night before the game held in the ballroom at the VAF headquarters hotel in downtown Nashville. Thing is, we had no idea who the nice old man was who sat down at our table until later. We were alone at the table & Mr. Jones joined us, just made small talk about UVA football & about our family, the game, just stuff like that. Later on we found out that he was Mr. Jones. He was as nice as he could be, just seeing us sitting alone & pulling up a chair to join us, no entourage, nothing flashy...just a very, very kind gentleman.
