I Completely Endorse Tony Romo's Use Of A 'Major League' Reference In An Attempt To Spark The Dallas Cowboys
A lot of people will say that this is jumping the gun. That Tony Romo should worry about getting under center for the first time in months before he worries about the Cowboys making the Super Bowl. That a 2-7 team winning a championship is unheard of. That he should concern himself with winning one game at a time. All of those points would be valid concerns. However, not only do I stand by Tony Romo's use of a 'Major League' reference, but I think its's the most fitting clip he could have possibly posted. No, I don't think Dallas is winning seven straight ages to get to 9-7. I don't think they are winning their division. I don't think there is even a minute possibility that they could get to the playoffs, never mind do any damage if they do miraculously get there. That's my entire point.
Know what else was unlikely? A man nearly turning down an offer to manage in the Majors in favor of doing construction. A crippled catcher becoming a viable coaching option halfway through the season. A pitcher from the California Penal League that walks the bases loaded on 12 straight pitches becoming virtually unhittable. A Jamaican dude that worships a doll named Joboo and can't hit a curveball becoming a dominant slugger. An owner of a baseball team doubling as a third basemen. A guy who nicknamed himself after a Hall Of Famer and showed up uninvited to training camp becoming the best base runner in the league. A Japanese player that has a proclivity towards knocking himself unconscious becoming a formidable defensive outfielder. Starting to catch my drift? The Cowboys winning the Super Bowl is such a goddamn ridiculous proposition that to come to fruition it would have it have to scripted in some parody of the sport. The Cleveland Indians winning the Pennant with a bunch of no-name scrubs that have never played professional baseball before is equally as likely as Tony Romo and his 2-7 Cowboys winning the Super Bowl. So if they aren't going to back up the trucks and turn Jerry's World into a parking lot, then they might as well embrace whatever semblance of chance that they have left this season. Even if there odds are literally too big to be shown anywhere but the big screen.
