Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban might not be happy that the NFL is hogging all the attention tonight.
The NFL’s schedule release has become a thing, tonight at 8 p.m.
As noted by David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, in a delightful coincident, Cuban’s Mavericks play the San Antonio Spurs in a playoff game at 8 p.m.
Wonder which will create more buzz?
Of course, tonight’s unveiling of the order of a list we already know the contents of is pretty much Cuban’s point, that the porcine NFL is risking overexposure.
But Cowboys owner and Arkansas alumnus Jerry Jones replied good-naturedly that he thinks everything’s going to be fine with his business.
“I respect Mark,’’ Jones said. But with all due respect, I know more about pigs than Mark does.
“I was taught as a Razorback to be lean and mean, not a little fat pig.’’
Of course, it’s easy for Jones to bring home the bacon, when his schedule release will draw more attention than Cuban’s playoff game.
