Found September 12, 2012 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:

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 with teammate Mike Adams,

Y’know, the Romo uniform bet is all right and all. What really would have made it would have been forcing Nathan to pitch like Tony Romos. Watching a pitcher trying to hit the plate while throwing across his body off his back foot into traffic (first round of the crowd) would have made for unforgettable viewing. Alas…

Also, after seeing Nathan, I wonder how much of the Rangers crowd got angry that they see didn’t just tickets to a football game by accident? “DAWWWWW, THAT’S THE MEANEST TRICK YOU CAN PULL ON A TEXAN!”

– The Chiefs official Twitter account sent a snippy reponse to a disgruntled fan who tweeted that he is sick of Clark Hunt regularly not spending enough to make the team better. The team account has issued an apology, possibly because the person it decided to get pissy with is a SOCIAL MEDIA POWER USER with almost 130,000 followers.

Today is Andrew Luck’s birthday. Coby Fleener gave him a ride to practice as a present. That’s a pretty ****** gift, Coby. You’re about to get hung up to dry going over the middle.

– Rex Ryan reportedly asked injured special teamer Jeremy Kerley if he’s come down with “the Pittsburgh Flu” to avoid playing the Steelers. Ryan should show more concern as that ailment is both more potent and more Pittsburghish than the well-known Triple ******* Asian Flu.

Here’s a breakdown of Richie Incognito, who you may remember as the guy stealing rookies’ iPads on “Hard Knocks” being a dick yet again and trying to injure Antonio Smith on Sunday.

– An illuminating read from Smart Football’s Chris Brown on Grantland about how the Redskins smartly gameplanned with RGIII against the Saints. The only caveat is that it portrays the Shanahans in a positive light, and that’s never easy to take.

– The Griffining counter movement has arrived and not a stupid forced meme submission too soon.

– Aaron Rodgers said the one thing he dislikes is Alex Trebek’s attitude. Among the things he does especially like is MAD TV, so Aaron Rodgers is pretty much dead to me now.

– Rodgers claims the widely reported bet he lost to a former member of Boyz II Men that would force Rodgers to wear a 49ers this week if the Packers lost was just a joke that got blown out of proportion by TMZ. You know what, Alex Trebek wouldn’t welch on a bet, so **** you, Rodgers, he wins.

– Chris Johnson is cracking jokes on Twitter about his poor showing in Week 1. HUMOR!? Everyone, especially sportswriters, know humor is not conducive to winning. He is to but summarily or dealt to a division rival for a four-pack of lighters.

Tony Romo flirting with ‘elite’ status

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 [...]

Returning to Seattle won't be a snap for Romo

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...

Recalling the 2006 Playoff Loss. Again.

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...

Aikman was right: Cowboys’ Romo is a better QB than he was

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...

Dallas Cowboys: 2012 Week 2 Power Rankings (#15)

Last week: 17 (+2) Record: 1-0 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...

Rangers' closer loses bet, dresses as 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...

Joe Nathan Loses Bet, Dresses Like Tony Romo in Full Cowboys Gear During Rangers Batting Practice (Photos)

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...

Rangers closer Nathan pays off bet as Romo

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...

The Rub: NFC Week 1, Five Teams In Five Words

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...

Report: Cowboys begin contract talks with Tony Romo

According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, the Dallas Cowboys and the reps of quarterback Tony Romo have begun preliminary talks towards getting a contract extension hammered out. A source says Cowboys have informed Tony Romo they want extension and very preliminary contract talks have occurred. #nfl #cowboys — Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) September 14, 2012 Romo’s current contract isn...

Joe Nathan’s Tony Romo Halloween Costume

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...

Fantasy Football Week 2: Dallas Cowboys @ Seattle Seahawks

Dallas Cowboys @ Seattle SeahawksDallas:  Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys got a little bit of revenge in Week 1, handing the defending champion New York Giants a loss about 9 months after they were beaten by those very same Giants in a Week 17 winner-to-the-playoffs matchup in 2011.  Romo looked extremely efficient in getting the ball to the open man, where Kevin Ogletree made...
