"Hard Knocks," the HBO show that Donovan McNabb insists on calling "Hard Knock Life," did a good job of humanizing the Dallas Cowboys this summer. Tony Romo, already pretty likable -- when people aren't making fun of/lusting after his girlfriend -- became even more so. And now, this news:
Romo stopped in a parking area along a Dallas freeway late on Sunday night, after the Cowboys returned from their game in Cleveland, and helped a couple fix a flat tire. This news comes from Randy Galloway's column in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The driver said, "He gets almost knocked cold in that game, and I read it took 13 stitches to close the cut (on Romo's chin), and then there's a long flight home and Tony's got to be dog tired, but he still was a good enough person to stop and help us.
"Look, we're driving a 10-year-old car that is sitting in a parking lot with a flat tire in the dead of night. He could tell by that we're nothing special. But here's a young man making millions of dollars, and he's got all this fame and glory, and he does this?"
Pretty cool, huh?
Oh, never mind. I forgot what week this was.
Saint Tony Romo
It's getting harder to hate Tony Romo.
