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.
