Irvin focuses on Aikman's joy, not his own despair
DETROIT -- Michael Irvin took his snub more gracefully this time.
A year ago, the former Cowboys receiver sat in his hotel room and cried after learning he'd been denied by Hall of Fame voters. He got the same result again Saturday, but this time felt he should be part of the celebration because former teammate Troy Aikman got in.
"I'm so happy because I'm part of that story," Irvin said, after sitting in the audience and watching his quarterback discuss his election.
