Cowboys Tony Romo May Have Given Up Golf, But Not Soccer (Video)


When the announcement came last week that Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo had decided to give up his offseason routine of playing golf due to his recent back surgery, many fans let out a sigh of relief. Having their quarterback focus solely on football and rehabbing his recent injury could only mean good things for the Cowboys and their upcoming regular season. Now, video has appeared via TMZ Sports of Romo playing in a game of indoor soccer last week. As a Cowboys fan, how does that make you feel? You can watch the short video below:

In December, Romo had surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back. The injury caused him to miss the final game of the regular season, which was for the NFC East crown and a playoff berth. Although it was close, Dallas ended up losing that game in part due to an interception thrown by Romo’s back-up quarterback, Kyle Orton. Going into the 2014 regular season, it appears that Orton will not return making Romo’s health more important than ever to this team.

Regardless of those facts, I like that Romo is still being active. With the understanding that all those involved in the match know his situation, that is.  Obviously, Romo is a competitor. He’s a natural athlete who was a four sport athlete at Burlington High School in Wisconsin. (football, basketball, golf, tennis) Playing games is in his blood. Like Michael Jordan’s “love of the game” contract clause, Romo’s love for sports drives him. And during the offseason, in order for the 34-year old Romo to stay in shape, why not play a bit of indoor soccer to keep those old legs fresh? Especially considering this is a normal offseason activity for him.

What do you think? Should Romo be sitting out of all competitive sports totally or do you like the fact he remains active in that area during the offseason? Cast your vote in the below poll then head a bit further down to further explain your answer in our comment section.

    A) soccer is not his sport. And B) WTF! Like he should be on the couch relaxing the back or something. If he showed up at camp looking like a tub of lard everyone would be kicking him for that. Why isn’t the narritive “good thing he’s keeping in shape. “?

    No joke! Seriously, what is he supposed to be doing?? It’s not like he’s doing parcore or playing rugby.
    We need he in shape to begin camp. If he can play soccer then he should ready to go therefore this is a good thing.

    I love hearing the stupid BS being spewed by the jackasses on ESPN. It’s pretty ridiculous how they try to generate and sensationalize things. SMH.

  • Greg Hill

    If anything, by watching the fourth quarters, Tony has given up football.
