Default QB sneak: Romo lends a hand to homeless man

Figure we could all use a good story today after many watch their money go to sh!t in the market again , the Texans suckage of a season and even McPurse and the Rockets not performing as many expect thus far.

QB sneak: Romo lends a hand to homeless man


Quote:
In a rags-to-riches story that might sound like the premise for a Hollywood production, a homeless man found himself being treated to the movies by multi-millionaire Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo recently, The Dallas Morning News reported on Thursday.

The man, who asked to be identified only as "Doc," was cashing in change at a Cinemark Theatre in Dallas when a stranger walked up and offered to pay his way into the movie. The homeless man said he had planned to spend his day handing out fliers for a nearby consignment store and accepted a rain check before recognizing the generous gentleman.

"Was that Tony Romo?" he asked the theater worker.

Say what ya want about the Cowpies .... Romo's a class act. This isnt the first time he's done stuff like this.

Call me a skeptic, but that's a PR stunt if I've ever seen any.

I heard this story on Rome today, and its a great goodwill situation. Rome also mentioned that Romo stopped a couple weeks ago and helped a couple on the side of the road change a tire.

Heard the same stories on a few different shows today. What they failed to tell you was:
a) he fumbled the crow bar
b) he broke his pinky finger reaching in his pocket for his wallet at the theater.





Just 'cause I hate the pokes doesn't mean they haven't had some decent, good folks on their teams.

Romo brought Will Smith to Lake Highlands High School in Dallas this week, too, at a school pep rally.

Maybe he can bring Jessica Simpson over to my place sometime since he's a nice guy and all.

So he gave 7 bucks to a homeless guy so he could see a movie? This is news....how? I'm with mexican-texican, that's got PR written all over it.

He's probably a nice guy anyway.

Um, yeah...I agree. Check out the cover of this month's Cosmopolitain magazine. I dropped my jaw at the grocery checkout line.

I don't think this is a PR stunt. Paying for 1 guy to go to the movies is just something he did, and it ended up being newsworthy because of who he was. I highly doubt he planned it

When I heard the news on the radio, they mentioned that Romo asked his publicist not to say anything. That has PR written all over it. I'm not saying he's not a good guy or that he didn't do this just to help out the guy, but this wouldn't get this kind of press without his PR people.

Default Re: QB sneak: Romo lends a hand to homeless man

So Romo goes to a movie theater, does a minor good deed, DOESNT tell the guy he's helping that he's Tony Romo, AND tells his publicist not to say anything----

and its a PR stunt to you?

What would he have to do for it not to be considered a PR stunt?


Of course these things get to the news. The homeless guy and the movie theater guy probably made a big deal about it, and word got around pretty quickly. What this says to me is that he probably does this type of thing a lot---and everyone once in a while people hear about it

PR stunt or not, it was a nice thing Romo did. Funny, stories like this NEVER seem to leak out about Skip Bayless.
