This whole Tony Romo/Chestica Simpson thing has gotten completely out of hand. First you had T.O. dogging Romo saying Simpson was a distraction. Then you had Tom Brady supposedly give Romo advice not to have his chick show up at games. Then with the Cowboys limping into the playoffs and sitting on a bye week ready to face the Giants, there was heavy speculation as to whether or not Simpson would show up at the playoff game. Things got so out of hand that you could bet on the likelihood of Chestica showing up at the game. Well, the million dollar question finally was answered, and none other than Michael Strahan was there to defend Romo:
“Heck, if Jessica Simpson wanted to date me, I may give her a shot,” said the recently divorced Strahan.
Strahan said he couldn’t blame Romo for the trip.
“If he wanted to sit in Dallas, they would have found some fault in that because he would have been with her if they had pictures of them in Dallas,” Strahan said. “So for them to go to Cabo or wherever they went, good for them. They deserve that time off.”
“I think anybody who thinks that because he took a few days with his girlfriend that he is going to come back and not play well or he is not going to be prepared if anything it probably stokes his fire to play even better.”
I completely agree with Strahan here. Jason Witten goes to Mexico, but it’s a tree in the forest. Tony Romo goes to Mexico, and all of a sudden the world is coming to an end. Please. And who’s to say Romo wasn’t out having his fun during the regular season and still tearing up the league? Seemed like his 36TDs and over 4,000 yards passing would suggest he can perform despite partying it up. And come on, like Strahan says, if Chestica wanted to date you, wouldn’t you give her a shot? Exactly. Must I remind you of this?
