Eagles employee sorry for spitting on Cowboys star

An employee with the Philadelphia Eagles has apologized for spitting on the Cowboys star in the middle of Cowboys Stadium.

How does anyone know?

He posted it on the internet - and now it has gone viral.

Team officials say Dave Spadaro is an editor on the team's official website. He takes what he calls his "spudcam" on team trips. This past Sunday Spadaro, with Spudcam in hand, walked out to the middle of the Cowboy's stadium.

"Nobody's looking," Spadaro is heard to say as the video shows him walking out to the big blue star in the middle of the field. You can then hear him spit.

"There you go fellas," he continued, before spitting again.

The video was pulled from the Eagles' official web site, but not before someone grabbed it and posted it again on YouTube.

Now it's out there for all to see.

Spadaro posted an apology on the Eagles' web site. He says he got carried away and did not mean to insult the cowboys or their fans. In his letter, Spadaro states he went too far "with my Spudcam video prior to Sunday's game against the Cowboys." "It was not my intention to insult the Cowboys. It was my intention to enjoy the spirit of a great sports rivalry, and I clearly went over the line and acted unprofessionally," Spadaro goes on to say.

The Eagles play the Cowboys on Saturday in the first round of the NFL playoffs.

It's not the first time the Cowboys' star has become the center of controversy. Back in 2006 Terrell Owens, then with the San Francisco 49ers, ignited an uproar after scoring a touchdown then celebrating right there on the Cowboy's star.
