Jessica jinxes Tony

jstromozz.jpgThe Philadelphia Eagles need to give a game ball to Jessica Simpson, the girlfriend of Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. He was pathetic in the Eagles' 10-6 upset win in Dallas. Romo was 13 for 36 with three interceptions and no touchdowns, the first time in three years the Cowboys have failed to score a touchdown. He also hurt the thumb on his throwing hand during the game.

Why blame Simpson? She was shown numerous times on Fox sitting in a luxury box wearing a Cowboys shirt with a pink No. 9 (how romantic) and J.P., the Cowboys fan I was watching with, swore all game about how Romo spent more time boinking Jessica than studying the Eagles defense. He might have a point. This is the second consecutive year that a girlfriend of Romo attended a December Cowboys-Eagles game and the second time the 'Boys have lost. Andy Reid should hire whomever Romo is dating next year as an Eagles assistant for the week (see the next blog post for how an Eagles fan feels about it).

Tim MacMahon, who blogs the Cowboys games for the Dallas Morning News, was getting more and more exasperated as the game wore on:

No wonder Tony Romo hasn't completed a pass. Jessica Simpson, wearing a white-and-pink Romo jersey, is sending him bad vibes from a luxury suite. Let me point out that Romo's ex-gal pal Carrie Underwood attended the Christmas loss to the Eagles' last season. ...

By the way, Jessica Simpson is sitting under Don Meredith's name in the Ring of Honor. Blame that pick on her. ...

Jessica Simpson owes it to her man to leave at halftime, although that would mean sacrificing valuable face time on national TV. Don't count on it. ...

Funny, but Jessica Simpson isn't sitting in the front of the luxury suite right now. ...

I'm not sure if Tony Romo's relationship with Jessica Simpson is strong enough to make it through this stinker.
