Texas Rangers relief pitcher Joe Nathan dressed up as Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo during warmups before Tuesday night's game against the Cleveland Indians.
Nathan came out dressed in a complete Cowboys uniform, complete with helmet, shoulder pads, football pants and a Romo jersey.
Nathan lost a bet with fellow Rangers reliever Mike Adams
on the NFL season opener between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants, which the Cowboys won 24-17. Nathan, unfortunately, had picked the Giants.

You have probably already made your mind up about Dallas Cowboys starting QB, Tony Romo. He is usually one of three things to NFL fans: He is a very good quarterback who probably won’t win the Big One (remember when people said this about a certain pair of Manning brothers?), or that he is an [...]
One of the worst moments of Tony Romo's football career, if not the worst, had nothing to do with him playing quarterback. On Jan. 6, 2007, it appeared that Romo would lead the Dallas Cowboys to a wild-card playoff win in Seattle.
He'd moved his team to Seattle's 2-yard line with 1:19 left in the game after tight end Jason Witten was stopped just short of a first down...
Tony Romo may never have a positive legacy because of The Botch during the 2006 playoffs.
The 2006 season was the first one I covered for this blog. The Cowboys looked very mediocre early that season as Drew Bledsoe continued to earn a “statue” nickname and Terrell Owens did little to help the Cowboys stand out.
Then came the emergence of a new quarterback. He played college...
When the clock counted down to read nothing but zeros, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo triumphantly walked on the field granting postgame interviews with the biggest smile possible. The feeling of jubilation poured out of Romo, having beaten the Super Bowl champions and long-time nemesis, the New York Giants. Now Romo has his sights set on beating the Seattle Seahawks. A...
I have long been a Romo-basher so even I was surprised that I ended up falling on this side of the debate but after taking a deeper look I realized that Troy Aikman may have been right. Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo is better than Aikman was. Now I know Aikman made this comment way back in March of this year so this argument played out months ago but after watching Romo...
ARLINGTON, Texas Texas Rangers closer Joe Nathan had to pay off a bet Tuesday before the game against Cleveland.
He wasn't happy about it either.
Nathan, a diehard New York Giants fan, shagged fly balls in the outfield dressed from head to toe like Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Nathan lost a bet to fellow reliever Mike Adams, who is a Cowboys season-ticket holder...
Texas Rangers closer Joe Nathan can do a pretty good impersonation of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.
The pitcher and New York Giants fan had no choice.
Nathan paid off a bet with fellow reliever and Cowboys fan Mike Adams by donning a full Romo uniform, including pads and football cleats, during the Rangers' batting practice before Tuesday night's game against Cleveland...
No, Tony Romo didn't make a special guest appearance during the Rangers' batting practice on Tuesday night. Wearing full Cowboys gear -- everything from the jersey to pads -- was Rangers reliever Joe Nathan, who reportedly lost a bet on the Giants-Cowboys game with Mike Adams. Adams, who has Cowboys season tickets, is a huge fan and even keeps a Cowboys helmet in his locker...
Joe Nathan, a Giants fan, last night paid up on his NFL regular season opener bet with Rangers pitcher Mike Adams by wearing the official Tony Romo uniform during BP. Notice: official Nike Romo jersey. The bet was to wear the uniform through batting practice and let lots of fans take photos of the shaming. Nathan, born in Houston, was raised in New York.
Here he figured there was...
Last week: 17 (+2)
The Cowboys beat the Giants because Tony Romo had one of the best games of his career. However, they committed 13 penalties, which could have easily derailed them, but Tony Romo wouldn’t let it happen and kept coming up with big throw after big throw. They’ll be right in the NFC East mix, where all 4 teams are evenly matched, but they’ll have...
Texas Rangers reliever Joe Nathan dressed up as Tony Romo in uniform during batting practice at Tuesday night’s game against the Indians. I say “in uniform” because for Nathan to dress up as casual attire Tony Romo would have only meant flipping his hat backward and throwing on a Starter shirt. Anyway, the stunt came about as a result of a bet that Nathan, a Giants fan, made...
Dallas – Momentum: No team needs a better start to their season than Dallas, and no player needs a better first few weeks than Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Every week 1 game for Romo is like starting a new diet or fighting adolescent acne…it needs to go well early for him, or it’s not going to go at all. Not to overstate a single win, but that divisional victory over...
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Jason Kipnis hit a two-run homer in the ninth inning off Joe Nathan and the Cleveland Indians snapped a five-game losing streak, beating the Texas Rangers 5-4 Thursday night.
The Rangers remained three games ahead of Oakland in the AL West after the Athletics lost to the Los Angeles Angels.
Nathan (2-4) had converted a club-record 31 straight save chances...
