First of all, this post makes me feel dirty; Pat O'Brien dirty. And we did talk about it over the weekend, so perhaps you could skip the whole thing? No? Read on then.
Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson's Mexican vacation, ("Looking good, Billy Ray!" "Feeling good, Louis!") have people pretty much up in arms in Dallas, where they figure that — since they haven't won a playoff game since 1996 — their starting quarterback should be home, sealed in a Tupperware container until game time. Or at least playing an Xbox simulation.
While no one expects Romo and the Cowboys to spend the bye weekend at Valley Ranch watching tape, they had to know that spending it on vacation in Mexico will not go over well — especially if they lose next weekend. According to one Cowboys staffer, "It just doesn't look good."
Good thing there aren't any other distractions that might hinder the Cowboys this weekend.
