Wait, Romo, THE Tony Romo, really?

Meanwhile, ESPN are conducting a poll on the sporting personalities of the year. You can find it here. Plenty of worthy names on the list. Amazingly though, one Tony Romo appears on same. Tony freakin Romo. Who created the listing of sports types one could vote for, Tony Romo's Mom? Jessica Simpson?

ESPN's blurb on Romo;

''Tony Romo: Romo makes the list for a variety of reasons. Not only did he enjoy another fine statistical season, throwing for more than 3,000 yards and 25 touchdowns (despite missing three games due to injury), he also accomplished a number of good deeds off the field. These good deeds included helping a couple change a tire on the side of a road and inviting a homeless man to watch a movie with him.''

It fails to mentions the 'negative' deeds some might attribute to him for '08, for example 'being a part of the biggest NFL track wreck of a team, like, ever.'

Still, he is getting 0.1% of the vote. Who knew Jessica Simpson had a computer!
