Tony Romo's going to need a new excuse

Just for fun this morning, let's take the word of OK! Magazine as pure and undisputable truth (if you're wondering, they also claim that Britney Spears has Herschel Walker disease). OK! says that Tony Romo sat Jessica Simpson down, gently took her hands, and said to her, "Honey, welcome to Dumpsville. Population: You."

The New York Daily news quotes OK! Magazine, who quotes a friend of Jessica, who said:

"Tony is now starting to blame her himself. Before dating Jessica, he was Texas' golden boy. Now he's become a joke."

"He said he thought it was better if they went back to being friends."

"It was the moment he realized it wasn't going to work with Jessica in the long term"

Well, I for one, think it's a shame that they broke up ... at least before they had an opportunity to get a sex tape out there.

Any notion that it was Jessica Simpon's fault that the Cowboys lost to the Giants is absurd. If the relationship had any effect on his performance (which I doubt), that's still Romo's fault, not hers. And if his head was screwed up by Simpson, it would have been screwed up by any young strumpet with whom he shared bodily fluids ... famous or not, or spectacular jugs or not.
