Tony Romo Gets “Steaming Pile of Poo” Post Game Award; Shares It With Team
DALLAS (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) After witnessing a Philadelphia Eagles thumping at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings early Sunday afternoon, the Dallas Cowboys were poised to move to the front of a weak NFC East. It appeared they would do just that in the first half when they took a commanding 26-3 lead over the Green Bay Packers into the locker room. However, in a last minute script change Hollywood style, the Pack came roaring back stealing a victory in the final seconds, 37-36.
Immediately after the game, the team handed their “Steaming Pile of Poo” award to quarterback Tony Romo who threw a critical interception, setting up the Green Bay miracle.
“Once again, I’ve skillfully snatched bitter defeat from the clutches of triumph as only I know how.” said the veteran pass thrower holding the fabled cutting board piled high with the vaporous, fetid fecal matter of several unnamed linemen. “But to stand here today and not share this with each and every one of my teammates and coaches, would be unthinkable.”
Cowboys Head Coach, Jason Garrett appreciated the sentiment.
“Though I’m devastated by the loss, I am honored to get but only a whiff of this coveted trophy.” an emotional Garrett said, choking back tears as well his post game dinner. “A pile of shit stacked high is a fitting tribute to our efforts today. How ‘bout dem Cowboys?!”
The Eagles discontinued handing out the award after Andy Reid’s departure, but instead observe 24 hours of somber reflection to the mournful strains of Franz Schubert’s String Quartet in C “Adagio” performed by the Juilliard String Quartet.
