Oops: Dallas Cowboys official Twitter account ribs Dallas Stars
The Stars threw a punch right back. The Cowboys have since said the tweet was "posted accidentally."
What started as seemingly innocuous Tweet by the Dallas Cowboys’ official Twitter account about the NHL got a little heated — and quite funny — Tuesday morning on the popular social networking site.
@DallasCowboys Similarly in the category of nobody-cares…the NHL is back!
The Tweet included a photo of Mike Modano hoisting the Stanley Cup. Modano wore No. 9 for the Stars on the team’s 1999 Stanley Cup Championship team. The Cowboys’ No. 9, QB Tony Romo, has been with the team for 10 seasons and has never won a championship.
The Cowboys account has since apologized for the Tweet, and the Stars account has accepted the apology. Those two tweets are embedded below.
