Attempted robbery ends in NFL discussion.

This past week, Michael Irvin has proved that if you are an NFL Hall of Famer, you are immune to danger in the town in which you brought football greatness.

Former Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver and Hall of Fame inductee, Michael Irvin, was driving in North Dallas when someone pulled up next to him at a traffic light to rob him. Here is the article telling what happened, and Irvin's reaction.

"A passing motorist pointed a handgun at former Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin as he drove in Far North Dallas on Monday night, according to a police report. The Pro Football Hall of Fame member was not injured. He told police he stopped at a red light in the 18200 block of Marsh Lane, near Bush Turnpike, about 9:30 p.m., when the driver of the vehicle next to him rolled down his window, the police report said. Irvin put down his window because he thought someone wanted to talk to him and saw the passenger in the other vehicle raise a gun, the report said. Irvin said in an interview Tuesday night that he feared the men had planned to rob him and changed their minds when they saw who he was. "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."

Crazy. I wonder if it's true that in Texas you get a handgun every time you buy liquor just like in Family Guy.
