Tony Romo is in the argument of best brand promoter in sports. Since 2009, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback has become synonymous with Starter sportswear.
If Romo participates in a golf outing, he's wearing a Starter shirt. While throwing out the first pitch at a Texas Rangers game two weeks ago, Romo wore a Starter hat. When the Super Bowl was in Arlington, Romo shot an advertisement for the brand with rapperactor Ludacris. Last year's Super Bowl, Romo tweeted during the game from Starter's official Twitter account.
Romo's first picture with his baby boy even included Romo wearing a Starter hat.
"It's a brand that represents high-quality performance gear at an affordable price," Romo said last month while doing a Starter photo shoot. "Growing up, that was something I always looked for because I was going through shirts like they were water."
But things have reached a new level with Romo and the clothing line that is sold exclusively at Walmart. During a recent photo shoot, the 32-year-old was holding his son, Hawkins Crawford Romo, who, like his father, was wearing a Starter hat.
Hawkins, who was born in April, hasn't even began walking and he's already advertising for the same company as his father. The photos were sent out by Starter as a Father's Day promotion.
Romo doesn't talk often about family life when he's around the Cowboys' Valley Ranch practice facility but he said Tuesday that he's excited about celebrating his first Father's Day as a dad.
"I'm excited to see what my son is going to get me for Father's Day," Romo joked.
Did the franchise quarterback toss his two-month-old any hints?
Romo: "Yeah, I've thrown a few his way."

Sensing an opportunity with Father’s Day upcoming...
Every team has its super stars and has players that are supposed to be and are expected by fans to be superstars.
It also has players who despite their on-field accomplishments never get the credit they deserve.
Let's take an inside look at America's Team, the Dallas Cowboys, and see who on this roster of stars fit into the overrated and underrated category.

IRVING, Texas How important is it for NFL players to maintain a strict diet? Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has bragged about his ability to devour McDonald's on a regular basis yet still stay in elite shape.

(Eds: Updates.) By STEPHEN HAWKINS AP Sports Writer Dez Bryant is having a much different offseason this time, keeping the focus on football.
The third-year Dallas Cowboys receiver is spending more time with the playbook, watching more film and concentrating on his conditioning. Bryant is doing everything he can to earn the confidence of his coaches and quarterback Tony Romo.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was very happy to see cornerback Mike Jenkins show up for the beginning of this week’s mandatory minicamp. He once again reiterated that Jenkins won’t be traded.
“We’re not going to trade Jenkins,” Jones said. “I’m excited about the fact that we’ve got this kind of corner situation. We’ll maximize it for our team and...

With so many NFL teams going with a committee backfield the past few years, it’s really hard to find that one running back who is going to have a spectacular fantasy football season. After much self debating and pondering on who I think could finally have a breakout year in 2012, here are five guys
