Romo looks fat. Just glad its not a pic of him at a Krispy Kreme shop.
And what’s up w/ those old ass Jordans…
He’s playing basketball… you want him to throw on some brand new Concord’s for a PUG?
He’s TONY ROMO! I think he can afford them…
That makes NO sense. Rich people stay rich because they know how to handle their money. Continue working for McDonald’s.
Wow. Sorry to offend you. My point was an attempt at humor but since you went there…
Romo signed a 6 yr / $67.5 million contract in 2007. His salary in 2011 was roughly $9 million. Yes, I agree that the rich stay rich because they know how to handle their money. Handling money in the sense of investing/saving wisely. Investments now are somewhat risky in this market unless you really know what you’re doing (which I’m certainly not claiming to). But, I can say that besides my short order cook salary, I do have a portfolio that I’m proud of and hope to someday retire on. That point aside, I’m not sure what his (or my) salary has to do with his workout gear.
Tony Romo doesn’t have to buy basketball shoes if he wants them. I’m fairly certain that if he went to the Cowboys strength and conditioning department and asked for basketball shoes to stay in shape in the off-season, they’d give him any pair that he wanted. If he went out on his own and bought some Jordans that he liked – great. But they make like 50+ versions of Jordans; many of which are much lighter and more stable for the ankle (I know this because my son plays basketball in college and he informed me of this in excruciating detail) than the ones that he has on. I’m sure those are probably adequate for him and are completely comfortable – but they look broken down. And, it’s not like people don’t sprain ankles in basketball pick-up games.
I’m not sure if you ball much, but I do engage in the occassional game myself and have been known to clown others for the condition (or lack thereof) of their gear when it was in disarray. Call me cruel. Call me childish. Call it what you want, but it’s part of the game and being a competitor. If I can get a guy off his game because he’s concerned about jokes, etc. then I’m doing my job. And, if I were playing w/ a known millionaire and he walked in the gym looking like Romo, he’s fair game.
Sorry that I upset you – my break time is up and its back to the grill…
You didn’t upset me in the least way lol. And, judging by how long your rant was, along with it being punctuated and separated by paragraphs, I’m going to assume you’re an adult.
That being said, yeah, you’re childish. First, the dumb comment you initially made. Second, trying to justify it as a “joke”, and saying it’s just part of your personality. You’re probably one of those guys who’s just way over the top obnoxious when drunk watching football games. Tony Romo would probably BALL on you in those run-down 3’s, by the way. Lol… you’re a mess. Go make me a sandwich, chef.
No prob manny, can I take your order?
Club sandwich, hold the mayo.
It was an honor to get to meet Dez he is truly a sweetheart… but why and how.did y’all post this pic with me..??
