Former Cowboys wideout and Hall of Famer Michael Irvin — a man known for his playmaking abilities, and also for attempting to murder a teammate by stabbing him in the neck with scissors — narrowly avoided a carjacking when the suspect, a Cowboys fan, recognized Irvin.

Irvin, who was driving a new, white Range Rover, said a truck followed him to a stoplight. “I was looking in my rearview, and I saw this black truck flying up behind me,” he said.

The passenger rolled down his window and pointed a gun at him… [Then] “He put it away, because he recognized me. He said, ‘Hey, Mike Irvin, what’s up? Mike Irvin, man, we are big Cowboy fans,'” Irvin said. […]

Then the carjackers said, “Hey, would you like to buy some drugs?”  And Irvin was all, “WOULD I?!?!?”

He said his pistol-packing fans sped off after several minutes. […] “‘I’m a huge Cowboy fan’ — it never sounded so sweet before like it did last night, even coming from him,” he said.

Aw, that’s heartwarming.  Dallas has the best fans in the world.  They won’t even shoot or rob former players.  Well, as long as they won playoff games, anyway.  Sorry Romo.
