Michael Irvin talks sports to gunman in other car

January 15, 2009

Texas (ChattahBox) — NFL Hall of Famer and TV commentator Michael Irvin, used his charm and gift-of-gab to get out of a potentially dangerous situation.

A Dallas police report said Irvin was stopped at a red light Monday night when two men in a truck pulled up next to him.

The driver rolled down his window, so Irvin did the same, thinking the two men recognized the radio talk show host and television commentator.

The passenger flashed a gun. Then Irvin, a retired NFL star, heard one of them call out his name and mentioned being a “huge Cowboy fan.”

Irvin said he began talking with the men about the team’s 9-7 season and Dallas not making it to the Super Bowl. The pair eventually drove off.
