The Dallas Cowboys Are Taking Their New Multi-Million-Dollar Bus to the Scouting Combine

It shouldn't surprise anyone that the only NFL team that possesses enough vanity to ride into annual league events with a gigantic bus decorated in the team's logo and colors is the Dallas Cowboys. Jerry Jones has been riding around in one for years, and now he has upgraded. 

Details from David Moore of the Dallas Morning News

The team’s new high-profile acquisition, dubbed “The Elegant Lady,” is scheduled to arrive in Indianapolis on Tuesday for the NFL scouting combine. The Prevost Marathon Coach will be waiting to squire owner Jerry Jones and his staff around town once they arrive by plane.

The most important detail, though, is that it appears to be worth between $1.5 and $2.5 million while getting less than 10 miles per gallon. USA Today's Chris Strauss reports (via Bleacher Report's Zach Kruse) that the bus Barack Obama used on the campaign trail last year cost only about $1.1 million.
