@dallasstars our sincere apologies for the inappropriate tweet posted accidentally to our account. Good luck this season.

Earlier today, the Dallas Cowboys official Twitter account sent out the following message about the end of the NHL lockout: “Similarly in the category of nobody-cares…the NHL is back!” Their city-mates, the Dallas Stars took umbrage at the remark answering back with a fairly simple scoreboard tweet pointing out that Tony Romo sucks while Mike Modano rules.
The Cowboys deleted the tweet and apologized. It was the right thing to do politically, but in their defense, the Cowboys (2009) have made the playoffs more recently than the Stars (2008). Plus the Cowboys last Super Bowl was just 4 years before the Stars only Stanley Cup… Did I say shortest flame war? I mean most pointless.
