With some down time on his schedule at the moment, Ravens receiver Jacoby Jones took in Tuesday night's game between his hometown New Orleans Pelicans and the Sacramento Kings.

The game didn't end well for New Orleans, as the Kings won handily 114-97.

But that didn't mean those in the New Orleans area weren't thoroughly entertained when the local FOX Sports crew spotted Jones in the stands (how could they not, the place looks dreadfully empty).

Jones was his usual self, colorful and cracking jokes. Here's the video:

The best moment came when the reporter asked Jones what he was doing this offseason to stay in shape.

"Right now, I'm being fat," Jones said. "I'm eating crawfish, po' boys, everything crazy!"

Jones, an impending free agent, also hinted that he wouldn't mind coming back to New Orleans to play for the Saints, but that he would also like to return to Baltimore with another contract.

Those at the blog Kissing Suzy Kolber implied Jones was likely drunk, which is a possibility considering the now-infamous Sweet Pea incident did occur.

But those that have followed Jones the past two seasons with the Ravens understand that's also part of his character. He's a goofball with a southern dialect that likes to crack jokes. He's also very, very fast, too.
