Former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin has always been an icon of big plays and big things. One look at his house shows that the bigness didn’t end on the field when he abruptly retired almost nine years ago.

But now, the former Miami Hurricane says he’s contemplating a comeback, and wants you to come to his house and see why.
From DALLAS NEWS.COM:
The retired wide receiver is now a pitchman on the team’s new season ticket sales Web site, now available only to current season ticket holders. The Cowboys are using the site to sell reserved season tickets in the new $1.1 billion stadium in Arlington to fans who own season tickets in Texas Stadium.
The introduction by Mr. Irvin, who refers to himself by his “Playmaker” nickname, says in the video: “This stadium is so remarkable, it makes me think about a comeback.”
A tour of the site is also narrated by Cowboys radio play-by-play announcer Brad Sham.
Irvin’s efforts are seemingly paying off, as the Cowboys front office is pleased with the current sales rate of tickets, ranging in price from $59 to $125 per game, and with personal seat licenses as expensive as $5000.
Irvin was fired from ESPN last year, so it’s nice to know that the Playmaker has another source of income, you know, in case his friends decide to buy any more marijuana paraphernalia. the also speaks to the power of persuasion, and the hopes that the Cowboys can bring back the 1990s magic that the franchise enjoyed during Irvin’s heyday.
