Tony Romo will make his triumphant return to the field this Sunday in Miami for the 2-7 Cowboys. Seemingly in an effort to get fans of the polarizing franchise jacked up for the greatness that might lay ahead, he tweeted a classic clip from “Major League.
Win the whole fuckin’ thing.
Uh, yeeeeeeah. Pretty bold words from a man whose team sits dead last as the 16th seed in the NFC. Even if Dallas somehow runs the table and finishes at 9-7, sniffing the playoffs doesn’t exactly seem realistic. Christ, even the 49ers have a better record.
But there’s nothing wrong with conveying optimism to a fan base in desperate need of daily therapy and a friendly discount on straight jackets, especially when it comes in the form of an all-time sports movie.
And nobody did it better than Jake Taylor. Anyone who threatens to cut Roger Dorn’s nuts off and stuff ’em down his fuckin’ throat is a friend to all.
