So here’s something for those who aren’t the biggest Dallas Cowboys fans.
Basically, the “cowboys.com” domain name was up for sale in 2007. The Dallas Cowboys had won the bid at $275,000, however, the rep for the Cowboys believed their bid to be $275. So when it was time to pay, the Cowboys team declined and they lost the domain name.
Here’s what happened next:
Eventually, the site sold at auction for about $100,000 more than what the Cowboys would’ve paid. Since then, the site has basically gathered dust for five years. But this morning, a press release went out, proclaiming a new mission for Cowboys.com, as a dating site geared toward “gay & straight dating people looking to find themselves a cowboy.”
So yes, if you go to Cowboys.com, you will find yourself in a Gay/Straight Dating site for cowboys. Slick move Jerry Jones.
