A passing motorist who pointed a gun at Michael Irvin on Tuesday apparently changed his mind about robbing the ex-Cowboys star when he recognized who he was.
Irvin was stopped at a red light in North Dallas about 9:30 p.m. when the man in the car next to him motioned for him to roll down his window, When Irvin did, the man pointed a handgun at him. Then things got weird.
���The passenger pulled out a semiautomatic and I knew what time it was,��� Irvin said. ���But he said ���Oh, that���s Michael Irvin, with the Dallas Cowboys.���.��� Despite being scared, Irvin said he tried to keep the conversation going. ���So we started talking about the Cowboys and everything,��� he said. ���Then they got back on the highway.��� ���I tell you what, I���m glad he was a Cowboy fan,��� Irvin said.
I wonder if they discussed ties?
This all makes me realize that, despite his frequent asshattery, I kind of miss Michael Irvin. And I suspect that you do too.
