Cowboys' QB Tony Romo and Wife, Candice, Expecting Child No. 2

   Cue the punch lines: Tony Romo will have more kids than playoff wins.
   Got a call from a Cowboys' source in Oxnard Wednesday night. We were talking about the quarterback's health, his training camp performance and my column defending him from an asinine attack by a former Houston Texan. Near the end of the conversation he blurted out something about Tony's "new arrival." Wait, what the what?!
   Sure enough, Romo and wife Candice Crawford just recently found out they are pregnant for the second time.
   Crawford, the former pageant queen who married Romo in Dallas in May 2011, gave birth to Hawkins in April 2012. The quarterback was the proudest of papas when he showed off his bouncing boy at training camp in Oxnard last summer.
   Don't worry, haters, this second pregnancy shouldn't be a football distraction as - according to my sketchy math and flimsy grasp of the process - the child will be born next May before the Cowboys get too serious about the 2014 season. But no denying the fact that Romo's two kids will outnumber his lone playoff success - a win over the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2009 season.
   We probably shouldn't expect a formal announcement from the couple. Romo casually revealed pregnancy No. 1 during a visit to Cedar Hill High School.

  2. I am trying to come up with any reason why myself or any Cowboys fan should care about this, and I can't. Maybe you should put in an application to TMZ.

    1. Some fans are interested in players' private lives, as well. If you're not, no worries.

  3. Hey Romo haters, look, his hat isn't on backwards!!!!

    Happy for the guy. Pretty amazing story from unheralded high school player that didn't even get into football until his freshman year and only because his school couldn't field a soccer team, to not being a starter his junior year until he took over in the second game of the season(his senior season his team went 3-6 Romo haters) and then getting a PARTIAL scholarship to a I-AA school and winning the Walter Payton Award, to walking on with the Cowboys. If Quincy wouldn't have had drug problems he probably would have been cut from the team, but stayed on through backing up Testaverde and Bledsoe until he got his shot.
    Funny thing is, Sean Payton wanted to trade a 3rd round pick for him but Jerry wanted a second rounder.
    Fast forward to starting on America's team, 1 playoff win, 3 pro bowls, marrying a beauty queen and becoming a father, not too bad. Sounds like a Disney movie, the only thing that would be the perfect ending is him guiding an injury riddled overachieving team to the Super Bowl and making a comeback in the 4th quarter accentuated by a 4th down pass into the end zone as time expires.

    Another funny this morning is Sean Payton saying he was a better college qb than Romo.... and your point Sean? The road is littered with college qbs with better careers than Romo(see any Oklahoma qb not named Sam Bradford--Josh Heupel, Jason White etc.)

    1. The unauthorized biography of Tony Romo at the here and now gracing our screens. Can you still see your computer with all his jizz in your face? Good Lord man. Not a Romo hater here, but damn, he's not that great either. He mediocre, as is his team. And I fear the haters are going to get their "I told you so's" if he doesn't do anything this year.

    2. I would put myself into the category of Romo-haters as recently as a couple of years ago. I would criticize one of my friends that was an ardent supporter and other than me pretty much just being able to say "well he only has one playoff win" "he chokes" "he sucks" "he just likes being a Cowboys qb", the numbers say something differently. If you put someone else's name by Romo's numbers, it would be hard to say that he wasn't a good qb. Let's put Johnny Manziel's name in Romo's place. You'd be able to say that Manziel is a pretty damn good NFL qb as well as being a Heisman winning college qb. 2/3 of the qb's in the NFL would love to have Romo's numbers.
      Hate all you want, he's not bad and if you trust Jerry to find a franchise quarterback then you're not that smart.

      Why is it so cool to be a Romo hater anyways?

    3. He's easy - lazy - to hate because he's the quarterback of the Cowboys and most folks can't think deeper than that.

  6. "Not a Romo Hater here" and one sentence later "He mediocre." I've got news for you, bruh: you're a Romo hater. If you think he's mediocre you're nuts. Is he top 5? Probably not. Is he top 10? Absolutely. There aren't many QBs I'd take over Romo if you're not factoring age. Brady, P. Manning, Rodgers, Brees and anyone after them is a toss up. I'd take Romo over E. Manning, Roethlisberger, Rivers, or Flacco. Now if you want to consider age give me Ryan, Luck, Wilson, Newton, and Stafford. I'm not a Kaepernick fan, i thinkhave he is overratted with onlyto starting half a season, and I truly don't think Griffin lasts very long in this league. So Romo is at worst 11th for me and he's probably around 8th if I'm worried about just this year.

  7. Do you have a contact in the NSA?

    None of the other DFW papers had the story, then Bam! Four hours after you post your story, DMN and FWST are reporting the impending birth.

  8. Good for them. I got four kids and, if I could, I would toss them in the air and marvel at their giggles. My four are now 26, 25 (I married a catholic) 22 and 17. No way I'm tossing any of them. But I'm as sooo looking forward to tossing their prodigy, sweeeeeet.

    And, Grandma is Smokin Hot,
