Dallas Cowboys try to buy Cowboys.com for $275
Ok, this is just funny. Fellow Bloggy Network blog Tech Soapbox reports that the domain Cowboys.com was up for sale during the TRAFFIC live auction.

Bobcat.com recently sold to the NBA team for $50,000 – and the Dallas Cowboys are 10 times the global brand that the Bobcats are. Plus, and this is odd, apparently Cowboys.com has a TM (trademark), and is the only domain to have ever been granted a TM. I wonder how they pulled that off…
