The Dallas Cowboys have a new bus and it’s, well, Jerry-rific.
Think of it as a Cowboys Stadium on wheels because, like the joint where owner Jerry Jones’s team plays, the Provost Marathon Coach has been outfitted with pricey, opulent touches, according to the Dallas Morning News. (See the photo gallery here.)
The bus goes for $1.5 million to $2.5 million depending on the options. Presumably the name, “The Elegant Lady,” was free. The luxury bus, which made its debut this month at the Super Bowl in New Orleans, has three couches, nine TV screens, various concealed coolers, glass shelves for displaying tchotchkes and, of course, a star inlaid in the wooden floor. No word if there are Jerry Wipes dispensers.
This isn’t the first time the Cowboys have had an official bus; after over 2 million miles, Jones opted to retired the Elegant Lady’s predecessor rather than get her a facelift. Probably a good idea. Although this baby gobbles gas, getting 8 or 9 miles per gallon, it draws a crowd, what with the giant lone star on the side and all. Emory Tyler is behind the wheel now, just as he was for the previous bus. Given the strong feelings that the Cowboys inspire, he says there have only been two acts of vandalism: someone used a marker on it, which was quickly erased, and it was egged once in Indianapolis — not in, say, some NFC East city.
“I was in Philadelphia with the other bus once during the off-season and I was surprised,” he said. “It was so cool. The people there loved it.”
