Maybe Tony Romo just had a bad game. Ever consider that?
It's easier to blame his girlfriend, I suppose, because she's a celebrity and because she's got a reputation as being a bit of a flake. (Hey, if you don't, you're probably not a celebrity.) And if that helps Cowboys fans and the sports media deal with Tony's down day against the Eagles, so be it.
Romo and Simpson have kept quiet this week, and let lathered-up fans and media swarm on this non-story like rats on day-old Gruyere. You're being be played, people. Romo stunk -- not unlike he did against the Bills and the Lions, except this time he didn't find a way to win. Hey, he's allowed. It's a long season.
I blame Fox, which tried to take the focus off its bore of a game, by showing gratuitous shots of Simpson in her suite seat and pink jersey. And I blame Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, for their tee-hee commentary. It was bush league for the network's best announcers.
So go ahead, if you must, and blame Jessica. She'll be your Yoko. But I say: Long live, JessiMo.
(Hey, is that mini-Romo in the photo trying to make time with Tony's girl?)
