Dairy state-native Tony Romo was on-hand for his football camp in Burlington, Wisconsin Tuesday, so naturally the media sent their stooges out to ask him a lot of fool questions like, “Hey Tony, what do you think of the Vikings signing Brett Favre?”
Tony, polite guy that he is, answered the fool question, saying, “For him, he loves the game of football. He enjoys playing it. If you’re good enough to do it, and obviously he is, otherwise there wouldn’t be teams going after him.”Romo added, “[The Vikings] have tapes so they’re going to watch. They obviously think he did something right last year. They’ll be a very dangerous team if they get him, definitely.”
And the Cowboys would be a dangerous team if they had a quarterback who didn’t wilt at the first hint of pressure.
Sorry, but the only thing more tiresome than Favremania is the endless media fascination with Romo and his sex life and his feuds with his wide receivers. And it’s all because he plays for the Cowboys. There’s a law some place that a certain percentage of sports media coverage has to be dedicated to the Cowboys, Yankees and Lakers, with the small sliver remaining being split between the rest of the teams. I’m sure Romo’s a nice guy, but I don’t care what he thinks.
Fran Tarkenton – now that’s the guy I listen to.
