My Sports Rumors:
It’s that time of year where players are fighting for roster spots but also having fun and doing their traditional pranks & hazing. Well Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is no different when it comes to pranks as he was a former NFL player himself. His prank was at the expense of the media.
He was asked at what point in the week the team will start deciding on playing time for the Hall of Fame Game. Garrett, notoriously reluctant to reveal anything he doesn’t have to, had everyone’s attention when he began his answer like this: “We had those conversations two weeks ago, and we outlined everybody’s playing status. We made that public.”
He stopped. Silence hung in the air.
He curled his finger, put it near his mouth and made a motion like a fish caught on a hook.
He couldn’t hold back his smile. He had “hooked” the media, which should have remembered from just days earlier with the Tony Romo questions that he had said the staff hadn’t had any meetings about that yet.

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo confirmed that he wants to play in Sunday's Hall of Fame Game against the Miami Dolphins.
"If I did play it would be a series [so] whether you went eight plays or three plays I'm not sure how much that is going to affect that" Romo said. "Saying that I still want to play every time I suit up. Every time I step out there...
