Dallas Morning News writes about TravelGolf.com Tony Romo blog, but homers forget to mention that Romo choked in yet another sport
The Dallas Morning News wrote a blog about my blog on attention whore Tony Romo going Woody Austin. Which proves two things.
1). That Texas’ biggest and most prominent newspaper understands who’s the recognized expert on golf, especially celebrity golf. 2). Most newspaper sports writers really do struggle to come up with blog topics (unlike this completely non self-promoting blog for example).
Interesting how the Dallas Morning News failed to note how Romo choked in another sport this weekend though. That’s right, it turns out that Jessica Simpson’s dimmer half doesn’t just freeze up in football when something’s big on the line. He gags in golf too.
For there’s Tony Romo in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship final round Sunday, shooting an even par 72, doing just enough to insure he can’t win (he finished third, behind the ancient Rick Rhoden and Dan Quinn). Remind you of any playoff games you’ve seen lately, bandwagon Boys’ fan losers?
I don’t know if character is really revealed in golf as the old saying goes, but Tony Romo’s sure was this weekend. He did everything he could to dominate the headlines (no mean feat with Green Bay’s quarterback-in-waiting-limbo Aaron Rodgers in the field) by falling into a pond and having Simpson follow him around everywhere like a lost puppy. Then when winning time came, Romo went belly up.
That’s classic Tony Romo.
This guy couldn’t win a Scrabble tournament against a 3-year-old if he was given a 500-point lead. Heck, Romo couldn’t beat a blind man in tag. (Though that blind man could probably intercept one or two of his playoff passes).
There’s a reason Tony Romo has lost every playoff game he’s ever played, including this last year when everyone knew he had the best team in the NFC.) It’s 0 for 2 and counting for Tony Romo in playoff football, set to be 0 for 3 this winter with PacMan “it’s not Adam, it’s Adam” Jones screaming at him. And it’s 0 for and counting for Romo in big celebrity golf tournaments too. You know when he’s not just playing against Matt Lauer and true class act Justin Timberlake.
Forget about Terrell Owens crying for Tony Romo. I want to cry for TO, whose heart and guts you have to respect, for being saddled with this no-nerves choke artist.
Of course, you won’t read about any of this in those suddenly sunny-side homer Dallas Morning News reports. Where’s Skip Bayless when you need him?
Stop taking shots at our QB's "hobby", none of the DMN beat writers blog about yours - "playing journalist". I haven't heard comedy this torturous since I was stuck in an elevator with Dat Phan, Dave Coulier and Bronson Pinchot. Your blogging is so horrible that everytime I read it, I forget the plot to another Chevy Chase movie. By the time you read this comment I will be down to only 'Modern Problems', 'Fletch Lives', and 'Funny Farm'. Why would you even get a job blogging about "Travel Golf" anyway? What, was there no room for you covering the Guitar Hero Tourney Circuit? My best advice to you would be to leave the football blogging to those who know them some football, and for god sakes, change that pic of yourself you got up there, my screen resolution keeps trying to automatically adjust to accommodate your GINORMOUS forehead, the flickering is about to give me a fraking seizure. Now, if YOU'RE having trouble coming up with a blog topic you can always write about, "Why a guy living in the ghetto of Orange County, Ca and calling himself JohnnyWishbone is a better writer than me considering I'm still in the hole $45K on my student loans from all of those worthless germalism classes I was too hungover to pay attention to 'cause I was still hungover from drinking Zimas all night and watching 'Saved By The Bell' re-runs".
(Now that's how you write comedy. You know I'm right. Not, "This guy couldn’t win a Scrabble tournament against a 3-year-old if he was...Shut Up Foo'!)
I'm a huge Cowboys fan, but I'm not one of those fans that gets his panies in a bunch when some germalist rips on my team or it's players, and to be honest with you I have never heard of you before so, for all I know you and Romo could be buddies. But dude, not only is this the gayest premise for a blog I have ever heard of, you're a pretty crappy writer dude. Your Kung Fu? It is not strong. At all.
Hey, I'm all for free speech. I'm exercising this right by going as far over his balding head to get these offensive posts removed. I also realize that the parent company GolfPublisher has covered itself, by stating that the opinions of bloggers "do not necessarily represent the views of the management". But that doesn't cut it when a guy is taking cheap shots at the fans. Romo is a public figure & different rules apply. He's a big boy and I'm sure he's laughing in this moron's face. Why would Romo care what some 3rd rate blogger thinks? Evidently an editor did reign him in a little, because todays post doesn't attack the fans, but Sunday's post did.
Is it any wonder the guy asks, "Where’s Skip Bayless when you need him?" Another guy that is almost universally hated and is only famous for being controversial. But as inconsequential as Skip is in today's sports scene, this Baldwin guy couldn't carry Bayless' tiny, pink jockstrap. That's how low on the totem pole this guy is...The guy is a nobody, but he's a thumbtack under the seat of Cowboys fans right now, and just like when somebody comes on our blog talkin' smack, he needs to get swatted with a rolled up newspaper.
By looking around, there's a lot of good info here...Stuff I might even use when planning my next golf trip. Now I wouldn't give them a plug nickel, because if they'll allow this kind of post by one of their bloggers, how can I trust that any of their other information is trustworthy? Soon the NFL season will begin and Chris Baldwin won't even be a blip on our radar, but neither will any of the companies he represents. I hope they think it was worth it to let this hateful idiot bash Romo, the Cowboys organization and the fans.
Their ruling was based on the humane society's petition as you cause the local golf course wildlife to come into estrus early with your presense(chipmunks and ground squirrels) increasing the rodent problem and disturbing course events, and also by the National Journalistic Society to help in an effort to keep from dumbing down their profession with Journalistic wanna-bees like yourself.
Your so desperate for attention and notoriety, you repeat the same goofy story all over again and this one is as misinformed and dumb as your other one.
Seems anytime one of the Celebrity's refuses your unwanted presense for time for a story, you write a blivering stupid article to dis them, not realizing how stupid and immature it makes you look instead.
Tony belongs with that circus family.
If their were ever a classic choke, born loser, it has to be named Chris Baldwin.
Journalism is not your bag either. You should apply for that open Burger King position down the street from your house, "want fries with that?"
Look at what your doing to our Journal team! This is my open plea before all that you leave our staff immediately!
Say bud, I'm even gettin hate mail about you. You know the saying about what rolls down hill. Heard the boss has something pink for you today. Know what I mean their chipmunk?
Apparently the ground squirrel and chipmunk's come into estrus when he visits the Golf course.
what some people will do for a little attention.
and the only thing you gag and choke on is Mr. Romo's putter and driver.
TO: 'Wile E Coyote' - if you take shots across Chris' "bough" that's a freaking TREE LIMB you nimrod! Learn to SPELL for heaven's sake!
TO: 'Tim' and 'Ten Handicap' - if you eejits think the management is gonna dump Baldy over this tempest in a teapot, you need to think AGAIN. These guys made fun of some a**wipe singer named Taylor Hicks and had literally HUNDREDS of comments and calls for their resignations. All concerned are still here.
Notice that MR. ROMO finished as the TOP NFL FOOTBALL GOLFER at 3rd place with the next closest NFL player being Mark Rypien. You should show him some respect you worm munchkin journalist wannabe!

1) Social retards or whoever listens to Taylor Hicks, for the most part, don't take expensive golf vacations. Well-heeled Cowboys fans do. He's offended a lot of people that might have eventually used the services offered here. Surely his "bosses" realize that if he's allowed to keep pissing people off, they can't measure the money he's costing them.
2) Just a guess, but I'd bet there are quite a few more Cowboys fans than there are Taylor Hicks fans. Just because they're not leaving comments, doesn't mean they haven't sent a note to the editor, (as they've been encouraged to do on at least 3 Cowboys blogs that I'm aware of...)
3) What's does it matter? I don't really believe anything will come from it, but I'm having fun at this f-tards expense. It's a giggle. If we can cause him 2 minutes of discomfort, or make his editors reign him in a little, we got more accomplished than I really expected.
Stirring up the natives can actually be fun, even if they don't charge on the village. Causes are fun. Today my cause is to mess with a blogger that pissed off a lot of people. It'll pass soon & I'll be on to something else.
take baldy's 4 iron out of your mouth...i can't understand what you are saying.
Apparently the ground squirrel and chipmunk's come into estrus when he visits the Golf course.
Your Jounalism smells like pooh.
Your idea worked!! I took one of the most successfull, athletic, wealthy, beloved sports figures and made fun of him and low & behold lots of folks responded! Wow, it worked so well that I did it 2 days in a row. Thanks Mom! I love you.
P.S. Can I have my old room back?
A quick search on Google leads to many superior golfing resources. The real reason this "author" is continuing his ignorant ranting is because it has caused his page to obtain more hits in one day than it has possibly in it's entirety.
This "author" is the reason why blogs continue to lack credibility. For every deadspin or similar, there are 20 Chris Baldwins harping and crowing unpopular opinions to gain readership. It will work temporarily but soon enough, even the most avid Cowboy-hating fans will tire of the same old schtick and lack of useful knowledge and take themselves elsewhere, once again leaving Mr. Baldwin to his failed publication.
Chris - you have a captive audience now. How about taking your time, thinking, and posting something, I don't know - insightful? I dare you.
Attention whore?... oh the irony
Your exactly right on that one. It is hard to believe such a loser would write this about Romo who is a scratch golfer and not a pro. Hey, like guy said above, even PGA players fall into ponds (e.g., Woody). Did you see a lenching of him like you have of Romo and the fan base by all means?
Appartently this retard is very desparate and as you said, must use names that get noteriety at the expense of their character which is like writing for Globe or being a poperotcy scum!
Those same hands that muffed that snap are holding his wedge!!!! LOL. Lighten up Loser Cowboy fans.
On another note, what a freaking nation!!! There are some serious freak shows out there and they're coming after Baldwin. I say, bring'em on. We'll stand with you, Baldwin. Then we'll beat the crap out of you after we beat the crap out of them.
write for TravelGolf.com. How could you even
compare yourself to Dallas Morning News?
People who actually attend good schools
write for those publications. Community
college grads like you have to write for
crappy sites like these. Tony Romo finishe
3rd idiot. That's pretty good !! Name
another QB who did better, you cant can you. Your jeolous of Tony Romo and you're taking
all the frustration out. I can see why.
Its obvious life has been cruel to you. Your picture says it all. That and working for TravelGolf would get me angered as well. Keep hating, Tony Romo will shut you and Skip
Ballses soon enough..
Apparently you scored some hits on the blop space. Unfortunately the reaction is not the one you desired.
hope the results get your ass fired.
Should say that I am an avid golfer and fan of the game. Being part of a Large corporation that might have at one time considered using your site and visiting some sponsored golf packages. Well that certainly will not happen now. There is no way that myself or the company I represent would show patronage to any sponsor of Travel Golf in the future. I will make it apparent to all of my customers as well. You will not only reap the boycott of Dallas Cowboy fans, but many other professionals as well.
Your site may get some attention but the negative publicity will far outway any benefit. If someone in the company I work for pulled a piece of stupid like the one you have (not once but twice) they would be fired immediately. It does not speak well of Travel golf to have you on the payroll and the results of your bad judgement will certainly be noticed.
Next time you have an opportunity to be in a position that can actually accomplish something worthwhile. Perhaps you will remember how you screwed this one up. It is not only the fans of the Dallas Cowboys that abhor the remarks you so tastelessly made, but Sports fans in general as well.
Your articles are probably the best argument against free speech any could have. Your existence is probably the best argument for abortion.
Our advertisers are just broken up over your boycott. We'll be out of business by the end of the month.
Considering your miserable play of golf on your BadGolf.com website and your description of yourself as Pee Wee Herman, you must have Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and need to take your ridlin cause your way off base and out of order about our Star QB who is also an excellent golfer and not a Gopher like you.
How about you get a life and make your own news instead of trying to hang onto the coattails of celebrities.
Poster 'tim' - I wasn't aware there WAS such a thing as a 'well-heeled' Dallas fan...unless you're counting bootheels? I figured, from the comments made here, that most Irving/Arlington Redneck fans lived in (at best) a double-wide, and took vacations to Corpus Christi...if they ever left the city limits!
1) Dallas Morning News publication
2) Cowboys fans (he called you all "losers")
3) Tony Romo
4) Jessica Simpson
