    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



    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.

    :stirpot:



    :jk: 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.

    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.

    Yeah its a PR move. Why wouldn't they run this? Good guy that still has time to do nice things, unlike some millionaires out there.

    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.

    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.

    And the press is supposed to believe a homeless man? This went through his publicist.
