Tony Romo Joined Twitter Last Night

He signed up right before 10 o’clock. For his profile pic, he chose the image you see here. I mean, yeah, he’s married to a very attractive lady. But is this a joint account? Candice has her own account. I don’t see him in her profile pic. So I’m throwing a flag and penalizing him 10 yards for that choice. So far he’s got 48,000 followers.

This image is of interest because the mermaid featured appears to have the head of Candice Crawford Romo, wife of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, former WB 33 TV reporter, and one of our own 10 Most Beautiful Women in Dallas honorees.

After an intensive Google Images search, I couldn’t find the exact picture that appears to have been used, but this one is pretty darn similar:

Jerry Jones Says Changes Are Coming, But Probably Not the Ones You Want

“I can assure our fans this, that it’s going to be very uncomfortable from my standpoint, it’s going to be very uncomfortable for the next few weeks and months at Valley Ranch,” Jerry Jones told his weekly radio audience a bit ago on The Fan. Cliffs Notes: Garrett is safe-ish, but might not retain offensive […]

The Cowboys Are Selling T-Shirts For This Weekend’s Game Against the 2-7 Cleveland Browns

Nothing screams “I WAS THERE” quite like a t-shirt.
