Power Rankings: 10 Sports Stories that Didn’t Pull a Romo This Week

romo

Sometimes people do something so unique their name becomes a verb.

Roy Munson, meet Tony Romo. Against the Lions this week, Tony Romo really Romoed the game away, throwing multiple picks for touchdowns late in the game. It would be one thing if this had only happened once before, but this is a pretty regular occurrence now and at this point, it’s kind of expected.

But that’s great! Using “Romo” outside of sports has huge potential.

“Right before the closing bell, the stock market Romoed and I lost all my money.”

“I thought for sure this chick was going home with me until I Romoed and threw-up on her face.”

“The job interview was going great until I accidentally poisoned the interviewers coffee at the end. Totally Romoed that one.”

Here are the stories that didn’t Romo this week (click each pic to read more).

1. Lions come back from 24 down, beat the Cowboys…

Granted, not all of the blame goes to Romo, some of it has to be the credit the Lions deserve for being the greatest team in professional sports.

2. Rays come back from 7-0, Longoria walk-off homer puts Rays in playoffs…

This was pretty awesome. I can’t even be cynical about it. Probably the best day of baseball in years.

3. Hank Williams has Monday Night Football song pulled for comparing Obama to Hitler…

Interesting, since his career is now basically about as alive as Hitler.

4. Aaron Rodgers has six touchdowns in a game…

Or as Tim Tebow calls it, “Probably more than I’ll have the rest of my career.”

5. Walter Payton was a terrible person…

Although apparently acknowledging this fact makes you an even worse person.

6. Milton Bradley charged with battery…

This is the best he’s hit in a long time.

7. Jose Reyes pulls himself after securing the batting title…

I’m going to guess he doesn’t plan to retire right after signing a massive contract this offseason. You have to respect someone so selfish (and injury prone).

8. Theo Epstein, Terry Francona thinking of joining the Cubs…

Which is perfect since they just completed probably the biggest choke job ever. Can’t imagine how this could possibly go wrong.

9. Ohio State players suspended for being overpaid on summer job…

The four players were overpaid by over a combined $1,000. This was basically my dream for eight years.

10. Lynx win Game 1 of the WNBA Finals…

The WNBA is sort of like photosynthesis. You know it’s going on sometime, there’s just no real proof.
