No, not Romo! You're telling me that Bill Romanowksi used steroids? What a stunning admission!
Never would have guessed that. Not from a guy whose career highlights include the following:
"Â¢ Being served a civil lawsuit on allegations of battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress stemming from a training camp incident in which Romanowski allegedly pulled off teammate Marcus Williams' helmet and punched him in the left eye, ending Williams' career.
"Â¢ Busting Kerry Collins' jaw in two places, knocking Collins out for the season and earning Romo a $20,000 fine--a hit Romo now says "was one that you dream about."
"Â¢ Spitting in the face of teammate J.J. Stokes and calling him a "n****r," --allegedly.
"Â¢ While at the bottom of a pile fishing for a loose ball, deliberately snapping the finger of Giants running back Dave Meggett.
Good stats, Romo. And you're trying to tell me a guy like that used steroids? What will we find out next? Darryl Strawberry smoked crack? Pete Rose had a gambling problem? John Daly drank? I can hear the hearts of parents and children alike breaking all over the nation. Say it ain't so, Romo!
Romanowski says he 'fessed up to using 'roids because: "Ultimately a little boy looks up to his Dad, and [my son] said, 'Dad, do you do drugs?' And that one hurt me more than anything." Yeah, sure. Whatever. When your son asked you that, Romo, why didn't you just reach down and bust him in the jaw, or snap his finger in half?
