Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had a full day last Sunday.
On his way out to warm up for the Cowboys' game against Minnesota, he stopped to hang out with his young son Hawkins and his wife Candice, and take a quick family photo.
We saw all sides of Romo during the game as he wore a microphone. He playfully kicked the football forward a bit when he knew it was short of the first down and the refs weren't looking (he didn't get away with that bit of chicanery, watch as Vikings defensive end Jared Allen makes sure of it), he gave a quick smile to some female fans calling out his name, and he also showed he can motivate his teammates.
"Come on! You're the best player out here, act like it!" Romo told Bryant.
Romo's highlight came at the end. Romo had a great game-winning drive to beat the Vikings in the final minute. We get a sense of the tension and excitement during that drive from the NFL Films' "Sound FX" clip.
It's the kind of day Romo should remember for a long time.
