The offseason has barely even begun, but the Dallas Cowboys wasted no time making a huge splash. Although the free agency period has not opened, that didn’t stop Jerry Jones from making a $2 million acquisition. Meet “The Elegant Lady” — the Cowboys’ new state-of-the-art motorcoach.
The bus contains more television sets than the average household. It also has what driver Emory Tyler describes as a “salon.” The back stateroom area, where Tyler said Jones primarily hangs out, includes three flat-screen TVs. We wouldn’t want anyone having to turn their head now, would we? The motorcoach made its debut at the Super Bowl in New Orleans.
“People were there with kids in their Cowboys pajamas wanting to take pictures of me and the bus,” Tyler told the Dallas Morning News. “I know I’m not a celebrity, but people want my autograph anyway. A lot.”
Before you go ranting about how the Cowboys can spend money on a $2 million bus but can’t put together a championship team, just remember there is a salary cap in football. Jones may be the wrong man for the general manager job in Dallas, but people with personal eyeglass cleaners (yes, we know that wasn’t really the case) generally aren’t afraid to throw money around. At least he can sit in his new motor coach and watch other teams fight for a Super Bowl.Google+
