When Tiger Woods jabs his tee into the turf this morning for the AT & T National pro-am in Bethesda, Md., he will be playing with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. First, Romo's current dish, deposed pop diva Jessica Simpson, will sing the national anthem.

"It's just going to be a fun round, but also an interesting one," Woods said. "He's used to getting booed."
Especially in an NFC East city.
