    Tony Romo did what Bud Selig probably would have liked to do when Alex Rodriguez violated Major League Baseball's performance-enhancing drug policy last year, nearly trampling the Yankees third baseman prior to Sunday's game between the Cowboys and Giants.

    The former Texas Rangers star has played in either Arlington or New York since 2001 — except for this year's season-long suspension — so it's only natural he took in the game between Dallas and New York. 

    So, Rodriguez found his way to the tunnel at A&T Stadium before the game. Apparently, A-Rod was lost in thought — as he's been known to be — as the entire Cowboys team stampeded onto the field, nearly running the embattled slugger over.
