He may play for a team I have an immense amount of dislike for, but that is pretty good stuff coming from the kid from the state of Wisconsin.

Tip of the hat young man.

ROMOS GOOD DEED
Posted by Mike Florio on September 11, 2008, 10:25 a.m.

Though were always skeptical of celebrities and pro athletes who do something nice for someone else and then send an e-mail to every newspaper in the country announcing their good deed, weve got a feeling that the recent Samaritan-style actions of Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo werent intended to garner the kind of good karma that comes from, say, a grandstanding donation of $10,000 to a smattering of charitable causes. (Then again, grandstanding donations of $10,000 to a smattering of charitable causes didnt help Mike Vick in the karma department.)

On his way home from Sundays game against the Browns, Romo stopped to help a couple who was struggling to repair a flat tire.

Bill and Sharon White didnt initially recognize Romo, due in part to the bandage on his chin that was covering the 13 stitches he received after taking a helmet to the jaw.

The light flickered for Sharon White while Romo was working on the tire. He didnt answer when she asked if he was who he is. She repeated her question when he finished pumping air into the tire from a cigarette-lighter compressor.

I didnt want to bother him, Sharon said, but I asked again, Youre Tony Romo, right? I knew it was him by then. But he smiled and said, Yes, maam. I did something no 50-year-old woman should be doing, but I screamed real loud, and then jumped up and hugged him.

Her husband, Bill, was less concerned about his wifes PDA with a studly young athlete than he was about ruining his ability to watch the Cowboys-Browns game without knowing the outcome: Dont tell me how you guys did, Bill White said. Im going home to watch it.

Romo didnt publicize his actions at all; the team didnt even know about it as of Wednesday. If Sharon White hadnt sent an e-mail to Randy Galloway of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the story might never have been known.

He gets almost knocked cold in that game, and I read it took 13 stitches to close the cut, and then theres a long flight home and Tonys got to be dog tired, but he still was a good enough person to stop and help us, Bill White said.

Look, were driving a 10-year old car that is sitting in a parking lot with a flat tire in the dead of night. He could tell by that were nothing special. But heres a young man making millions of dollars, and hes got all this fame and glory, and he does this? . . . This was a good person we met. A good person with small-town values despite all the big-city fame and fortune.

[I]f I ever had the opportunity, Id also like to thank two other people. His mom and dad. They obviously raised him right
