Spurs fan petitions White House to keep Tony Romo away from games


It’s become very popular for sports fans in the state of Texas to blame any sort of woes on Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. No, they don’t just blame him for the Cowboys’ inability to make the playoffs anymore, they blame him for literally every bad thing that happens to a sports franchise within the state, including the NBA.

This week the San Antonio Spurs will take on the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals, and there’s one Spurs fan that is so paranoid about the “Romo curse” that he set up a White House petition to keep him away from the games, according to Project Spurs.

Tony Romo hasn’t been a good luck charm for the Dallas Cowboys. In fact he has been somewhat of a curse in Dallas and for any home sports team he watches from the stands. This is well documented. Just ask Duke, Clippers, Dallas Stars, Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks even the TNT show Dallas. Here in San Antonio we want our Spurs to win the entire enchilada. Tony Romo will only bring his curse into the AT&T Center and his mojo will make the Spurs lose. In fact we should send him into Russia. That Putin mess would be so over. Please America let’s stand together and stop the Tony Romo curse. Go Spurs go!

Ok, this is now starting to hit an all new crazy level. It was funny at first, but now folks are taking this to a whole other level.

Plus, I’m fairly certain that this “Romo curse” has nothing on Tim Duncan when a trip to the NBA Finals is on the line.
