Michael Irvin has actually done a pretty good job finding work following his firing by ESPN a year ago. He has a pretty successful radio show in Dallas and now he's back working with the Cowboys. No not as a player or in the front office, but as a pitchman for season tickets!
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.Good for you Mikey! I wish I could see the video to check out the giant mink coat he's wearing during the promo, but alas I am no Cowboys season ticket holder. It's good to see that Irvin is still getting work.
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.
