We’ve previously pointed out that, in this era of injury secrecy and skullduggery (it’s probably redundant, but the term “skullduggery” simply isn’t used as much as it should be), Brett Favre’s willingness to tattoo a target on his partially torn rotator cuff likely arises from a desire to have an advance excuse for not playing well in 2009.
Tony Romo now has a similar excuse.
Specifically, Romo has been cursed.
Per the Pulitzer-winning National Enquirer, former Romo girlfriend Jessica Simpson found a witch on the Internet (where else?) to put a hex on the Cowboys starting quarterback. Says the report, “The two met at the star’s Beverly Hills home where they lit a candle, burned some incense and performed a couple of incantations.”
The curse primarily focuses on impeding Romo’s ability to fall in love again, but football failure also was included. (She apparently had a coupon, or something.)
She possibly would have cursed Romo to forever look like Gomer Pyle, but someone already has beaten her to that one.
