CBS and America Exhale as Tony Romo Misses Cut at Safeway Open
Don't you worry, football viewing public.
Tony Romo will be in the broadcast booth and your living rooms on Sunday.
Of course, the notion of Romo making the cut was dismissed as absurd before the tourney began.
But that was before the offensive coordinator whisperer posted a ridiculous opening round:
That's damn impressive.
Tony Romo shot an opening round 70 at the Safeway Open on Thursday, better than Justin Thomas (71), Hideki Matsuyama (70) and Phil Mickelson (75). If Romo makes the cut, he will play the weekend and will miss Sunday's Vikings-Bears game.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 27, 2019
However, the second round wasn't quite as kind:
Jim Nantz's BFF finished with a 78, which placed him six shots beyond the cut line.
However, that's not too shabby for a former professional QB turned broadcaster.
Every time he goes out and misses a cut he's taking a sponsor's exemption from an actual PGA player. He's pretty selfish.— Robert William Trail (@Oriole63Trail) September 26, 2019
You know, some folks just be hatin'.
Sadly, we'll be deprived the potential magic of a Nantz and Boomer Esiason booth.
