Jesse Joe Hernandez at His Execution: "Go Cowboys!"
Jesse Joe Hernandez: Your team sucks, too.
Jesse Joe Hernandez was killed last night by the state of Texas for beating an infant to death.
Among his last words, besides the usual jailhouse-conversion religious stuff: "Go Cowboys!"
So at least the world, which recoils at his vicious crime, can take pleasure in the fact that he suffered mightily the last few years watching his favorite team suck. As if you needed another reason to have rooted against the Cowboys during those years.
Hernandez, 47, killed a ten-month-old boy he was babysitting in Dallas in 2001.
The AP reports that no members of the child's family attended the execution, so at least they were spared a look at Hernandez smiling and laughing and rooting for his favorite team.
