But a movie?


Better yet, Romo should have bought the guy a house and a lambo, and let him borrow Jessica for the night!! Stupid, insensitive Tony!!!

Come on guys. Really? Publicity stunt or not, it was a cool thing to do and it brightened this guy's day.

Pretty ironic they went to see the movie Role Model. I guess it's better than Zach and Miri Make a Porno. The story is entirely different then. :-?

That's my point, partially. He didn't do it to brighten the guy's day as much as to make him feel good--or as a publicity stunt. A millionaire hooking a guy up with a motel room, food, and calling the local health care office for a social worker consult isn't heroic. Heck it would take less time than the movie and be done for under $100. That would have been trying to make a difference.

And why isn't Romo going to the movies with any teammates?

He could have also kept on walking ;-7

I underlined the above, because even though that is not why we should help people or give to charities, but it is the reason we do....to make ourselves feel good.

Regardless of if it was a media stunt or not, I agree with some of the other posters that it's sure a breath of fresh air compared to the usual stories that come out about NFL players. I'm so tired of hearing about guys like LJ and Pac Man that anything remotely positive (made up or not) is welcomed with open arms. :-°

I'll go even further. And this may not be a reflection of a publicity stunt as much as it could show real naivette on Romo's part. He may have thought he was doing a good thing, but so unlikely that the press would have lucked into the story, no?
Most likely a publicity stunt, and a poor one. Taking a bum to the movies may be nice, and maybe that or changing someone's flat tire may turn Jessica Simpson on, but it was done more for Romo than for homeless. (I didn't think Homeless was from Texas, but I digress. Sure hope he took Homeless home to eat M & Ms with Jessica-who calls them alphabet candy, but I do digress*). If Romo were insightful enough to want to help stinky, he could have gotten him a motel room with a shower, bought him some groceries and hooked him up with a social worker to help the guy improve his life.
But a movie? Sounds like a stunt, or like Romo ain't too bright.

Some of you guys are just sad, do you really think Romo is that lame to do this and pimp it to the media, yea heaven forbid an athlete want to just do something good for a change :-?


The movie attendant said he recognized Romo and saw him purchase the ticket for the guy, what makes you think he wouldn't go run and tell everyone he knows? It's sad that some people just want to find negativity sometimes.


But hey, maybe he wasn't even homeless, maybe Romo paid an actor to look homeless, so he could make himself look even better, that's probably what REALLy happened :-t
