Oh no! Not only has the Bimbo Factor, first reported here by the way, hit all the media outlets across America, it’s now struck the nerve of Tony Romo’s teammates. Let’s backtrack a little bit.
Tony Romo does not play well when he brings his girlfriends to the game. He flopped when former bombshell Carrie Underwood attended a game last year. He flopped again Sunday when his new bombshell Jessica Simpson was present in a sexy pink Romo jersey. Hence, the Blonde Bimbo Factor.
Well, apparently this has become an issue in the Dallas Cowboys locker room. Terrell Owens, in an interview with DMN’s Tim MacMahon, revealed that invoking her name brings chills to teammates. WOW!!!! Tim starts some real trouble here in the questions he asks.
“Right now, Jessica Simpson is not a fan favorite in this locker room or in Texas Stadium.”
At this very moment in the interview, you hear the cackling from a gaggle of reporters. I can hear Tim’s giggle up front. I am not going to link to the story because I am a little bit annoyed with the Dallas Morning News today (I will get to that later). But just the thought of teammates even discussing this in the locker room is bad news for the Cowboys, and Romo. He needs to keep the girls at home!!!! He is probably getting picked on like crazy. I can see Jason Witten just pounding him for this crap. And Patrick Crayton, oh man, he is probably crushing Romo with the jokes.
“I think with everything that has happened, and obviously the way Tony played and the comparison between her and Carrie Underwood, I think a lot of people feel like she’s probably taking his focus away. …”
Gee, thanks Simpson. Now you are really screwing things up. Why can’t you go hang out with your sister or something? I know, I know, a family friend invited your family to luxury suites to watch the game, but maybe you need to think before you act. Stay home, girl! You’re an unnecessary twist to this great season. If Romo cannot regain his composure and play to his talents, you will be forever blamed. Do you really want that, Simpson? Do you really want that albatross hanging over your pretty little neck?
