Watching Dallas Cowboys blow one as Tony Romo pulls a Bill Buckner better than even a Vijay Singh collapse
There are fewer pure pleasures as a sports fan today - with steroids in and out of the shadows, hype lording over substance and many multi-millionaire athletes who simply don’t care nearly as much as the fans. But then, every once in a while sports gives you something great.
Like Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo going Bill Buckner on a perfect snap on a gimmie field goal that would have sent the second most annoying fan base in sports history into playoff win celebration.
Sometimes sports justice is served. The unfathomable blunder could not have happened to a more deserving group of blowhard fans. Or overrated quarterback.
Don’t shed no tears for Tony Romo. This guy is one of the most overhyped figures in sports outside of Michelle Wie. Romo has a few good games in a row and suddenly he’s being compared to Peyton Manning and getting named to the Pro Bowl?
That’s as much of a joke as Romo’s hands are slippery in the clutch. Could the guy have been any more smug when those dating Jessica Simpson rumors broke too?
If you want to ache for a Cowboy, hurt for Terrell Owens, who gutted it out nearly the whole season with a busted up hand that requires surgery. TO’s the rare modern athlete who truly cares. No tears for Tony Romo. No matter how good he sounds in the postblunder conference.
Yes, sometimes sports is still good.
Sleep tight Cowboy fans. Especially the ones who’ve never even been to Dallas and yet worship a blue star.

There's no need to kick a guy while he's down. Zero class on your part.
I do agree with you that T.O. has a huge heart.
black they would have cared even more.
He had a lot on his plate, especially it being his first playoff game ever. I understand that he's an NFL player and that pressure comes along with that, but he IS a good QB. He revived our chances, revived the fans, and was the reason the Cowboys were in Seattle in the first place.
I realize that part of playing and watching football is getting excited and celebrating the fact that you beat a rival or won a playoff game, but you should do it with class. Being a Dallas Cowboy fan, I don't particularly like the Eagles, Giants or Redskins but I don't put down their fans just because they cheer for their home team. I actually admire them more if it's not their home team, because they overcome adversity and put-downs from people like you in the process.
I read a ton of articles on the internet after every Cowboy game, and even Seattle had kind words for their beaten opponent, but yours was the most classless and crude one I have ever stumbled upon-- which says a lot about your character and the publication you write for.
Takes balls to get away from golf and no need to. Leave it to the football press. As this a golf column, why not stick to golf? Could have run a mile with a story hoping for a collapse of the no personality, Hall of Fame-Cheat...
You have the greatest opportunity in the world to get people thinking early in the week...
What are the odds of MW breaking 80 this week? Checked with Vegas?
Screw football, crank it up, it is Bubbles time again!!!
It's hate Nike time too...
When you grow up, what are you going to be if and when you make it past 12?
Stick to blogs on ESPN and Ultimate Fighting and get the hell away from our golf site... Bet your daddy (if you know who he is) has season tickets to the World Wrestling Federation too...
If Mr. Baldwin offended you, bet you he will he promise not to ever do another column regarding football. In High School keyboarding they will teach you how to use the caps button and do a spell check.
