Ordinarily, the idea of someone or something being "cursed" is reserved for those who think The Flintstones was based on a true story and baseball writers. But this? This is almost too much to bear, even for people with brains.

Poor Tony Romo just cannot catch a break. He literally breaks his back willing the Cowboys to victory not three weeks after vaunted cursers Sports Illustrated runs a cover story about why you should unconditionally love him. Now Kyle Orton will take the Cowboys on an improbable run deep into the playoffs, only made possible by Tony Romo. This is his fate.
