Star - Asked if golf could fill the competitive void he lost when he walked away from football and headed to the CBS Sports broadcast booth, Romo said: “It’s different. Competition in itself I enjoy and, for me, just improving and looking at something to get better at.

“That’s the same thing in broadcasting. I understand I’m coming in without any experience in that world. It’s exciting, it’s a little nerve-wracking, it’s all these things in one. That’s why you love to do things. You’re coming into the unknown and something I have to get better at and I like a challenge. I know I’ll probably stink for a while [in the broadcast booth]. Hopefully I’ll continue to improve at that and hopefully get better and be good.”

Hating the Cowboys is in my blood. Therefor, anyone who plays QB for the Cowboys I, and all Skins fans, automatically hate. And hating Romo was extra fun, because not only did we get to hate him just because of where he played, we got to laugh hysterically at him every time he Romo’d. Every 4th quarter fumble, every 4th quarter ridiculous interception, it was a joy to watch him play. It’s a miracle Twitter isn’t trading at 100 dollars a share purely because of 4th Quarter Romo Twitter. I will absolutely miss watching him play, and miss the Cowboys never winning shit with him behind center.

HOWEVA!

All that being said, I think I can now begin to like Tony Romo. It’s sort of like JJ Redick. He is my most despised college basketball player ever. Ever, ever, ever. I hate his stinking guts. But then he turned himself into a pretty good pro, he got a ton of tattoos, and I found myself sort of liking him. I won’t forgive him for stomping all over my childhood, but I no longer hope he falls into a vat of HIV.

And I appreciate Romo straight up admitting that he’ll probably stink as a broadcaster at first. Very few people can hop from one career to another seamlessly. He’s going to be a a free hat wearing, interception throwing, shitty ass broadcaster. CBS is probably a little pissed that he’s like “yeah, I’m gonna stink!” but the honesty is refreshing. Little by little, I think Romo will win all of us over. Or you know, he’ll be shitty and replaced by an actual broadcaster after the season. We shall see.
