Dear Tony –
What an amazing act of class, selflessness and courage.
I have loved, LOVED watching you play. Your numbers speak for themselves. You have nothing to prove to anyone who truly knows and understands the game of football.
But now – now, you have risen above football into an area few willingly tread.
For the good of your team you set your personal feelings and ambitions aside and did something heroic.
You even moved a high school buddy to comment on my Facebook page this way:
“How can a die-hard Redskins fan ever feel for a Cowboys player? That’s how…In a 5-minute press conference, after 10 years of enemy like disrespect, I became a Tony Romo fan. Great respect for his class and team-first honor.”
