Romo and T.O.
This ad at right, hawking jerseys for Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys and Terrell Owens, late of the 49ers, Eagles, and Cowboys and now with the Buffalo Bills, was served in an RSS feed for Danger Room.
It’s just amazing that Romo and T.O. are such marketing phenoms that their jerseys are being marketed so aggressively to a national audience. (Or is my Google Reader assessing metrics of my feeds, almost entirely non-sports related, and guessing I’m a Cowboys fan?)
Both are star athletes, to be sure. But, despite two Pro Bowls in three years as a starter, Romo hasn’t won a single playoff game. And T.O. is known more for his antics and dropped passes than his athleticism at this point.
