Tony Romo: Cowboy Casanova or Candy-Coated Misery?
*Just in case you were wondering, this title is from Carrie Underwood’s song, which is speculated to be in reference to her former fling.
Eons ago, I wrote a piece for this site ranking the top 10 worst teams in the league. While a majority of them I still stand by, it pains me to say that one of those teams needs to be removed from that list – the Dallas Cowboys. Every other team still belongs (Yes, even the Chargers. I refuse to jump on the Norv/Rivers bandwagon. I don’t care what anyone says… Charger fans are setting themselves up for another colossal letdown).
Back to the case-in-point, the Cowboys are the hottest team in the league right now, and they are the most dangerous team in the playoffs. I’m not a huge Tony Romo fan, but I am anxiously waiting to see him commit another epic fail. I still get the giggles every time I remember his 2006 playoff performance – seriously, that moment is hilarious.
Mind you, I hate the Cowboys, so anytime Romo does something stupid, I think it’s the funniest thing ever, maybe even funnier than Jay Leno. Wait, almost everything is funnier than Leno. TEAM CONAN! I digress…
You can see it in his eyes. It’s as if he’s waiting for the perfect moment to just completely screw the team. He’s carefully crafting in his head the ideal situation, and what exactly he will do to contribute to his “what the hell were you thinking?” list. That perfect moment has yet to come, though. Soon. Very soon.
In the meantime, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say the ‘boys upset the Vikings this weekend. But Brett Favre and Vikes fans, if you want to give yourself an advantage, give Jess Simpson a call. I don’t think she’s doing anything right now.
