Tony Romo: Curse is not real, picked UConn in all of my NCAA Tournament brackets

Dallas Mavericks quarterback Tony Romo has attended a lot of sporting events throughout the past year, and not just in the city of Dallas. Those teams have all had a common trend, early and unceremonious dismissals from their respective post seasons. That has led to the development of a bit of a curse, any team the Romo supports at a game will be afflicted.

In a local radio interview Romo downplayed the notion of a curse and declared that it was not real.

“I think we’re stretching it a little bit,” Romo said on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “I think my track record is about 80 percent this year.”

Romo had some other points to make about the curse, via Machota:

Romo pointed out that Duke defeated North Carolina when he attended the game at Cameron Indoor Stadium. The Thunder were also victorious when he watched them close out the Los Angeles Clippers last week.

To further prove his point, Romo revealed that he picked UConn to win all of his NCAA Tournament brackets.

First of all, I want to see proof that Romo had UConn in all of his tournament brackets. We’re supposed to just take his word on it after the fact? Secondly, there is truth to what he says. Only one team can be crowned a champion and there is a good chance a lot of people, celebrities and athletes included, have attended games for multiple teams and they’ve not won a championship.

Even though Romo might not think the curse is real, but there are plenty of people still buying it. San Antonio Spurs fan started a petition to ban Romo from attending the team’s games to avoid the curse.

The real questions is which curse is worse? The “Based God Curse” on Thunder superstar Kevin Durant, or Romo’s curse. Cowboys fans are just trying to find loopholes to get around this curse, is it possible for Romo to play but not attend the games?

Nope, looks like your out of luck Cowboys fans.
