We had a good old-fashioned Twitter war between the Dallas Cowboys and the Dallas Stars to kick off the week, and—unsurprisingly—Tony Romo ended up on the bottom of the pile. 

The Cowboys made a somewhat lame/somewhat true joke/observation when they retweeted DallasCowboys.com staff writer Josh Ellis' tweet about the quick-approaching return of baseball, adding that "similarly in the category of nobody-cares...the NHL is back!"

But the city's NHL team fired back with a social media home run:

At least our #9 got the job done..... RT:" @dallascowboys Similarly in the category of nobody-cares…the NHL is back!" twitter.com/DallasStars/st…

Mike Modano is greater than Tony Romo in the championship department, so there really wasn't much more "America's Team" could say. Instead, it canned its original tweet and apologized, calling the whole thing an accident. 

The Stars accepted the apology, and now we can all sleep at night. 

Hey, just 30 weeks until training camp, everybody.
