Romo Gets Into The Spirit Of Thanksgiving

As reported by several sources including ESPN and the Dallas Morning News, a homeless man who goes by Doc was cashing in change at a Cinemark Theater in Dallas when a guy walked up and offered to pay his way into the movie.

He planned to spend his day passing out fliers and accepted a rain check before realizing that he recognized the generous gentleman.

Was that Tony Romo?” Doc asked the worker behind the counter.

It sure was.

Doc told the Morning News that he ran across the street and told the consignment store he wouldn’t be able to work for them that day and then returned to the theater to see “Role Models” with the quarterback.

When Doc entered the theater, Romo allegedly waved the man over to sit with him and his friend.

Doc said he admitted to the quarterback that he hadn’t showered in a few days, but the Cowboys passer allegedly told the man, “Don’t worry about that, I’m used to locker rooms,” the Morning News reported.

Romo’s act was a memorable one for Doc.

“For me, it was a blessing,” Doc told the Morning News. “It came at just the right time. It gave me some encouragement and faith in mankind. I just wanted to say thank you.”

Romo confirmed the story to the newspaper but did not want to elaborate on his gesture.

How cool was that of Tony Romo? 

After all the negativity of the Pacman drama this week, it’s so good to know that we do have many players on this team that are upstanding individuals who are caring and honorable, and law abiding.

Sometimes the actions of one despicable person can stain the fabric of an entire roster, but then along comes Tony Romo who reminds us all, that with just one act of kindness, we can wipe everything clean and change everything.

  6. Thanks for sharing this wonderful story. I love it when people help others, especially when they don’t have to do anything. Tony Romo is a good guy and I’ve heard other positive stories about him as well.
