Does Tony Romo wear a cape at night?
The 'Dallas Cowboys' and 'Media Coverage' often means drama. Let's not review the many story lines that lead sports and entertainment pages such as Pacman and Jessica.
But, when the sun goes down in Texas the starting QB is quietly building a collection of Good Samaritan deeds. Does Tony Romo put on a cape at night?
In September, Romo pulled over to help a stranded couple change their tire (link to story). Most recently, Romo enjoyed a movie with a homeless gentleman. Tim McMahon of the Dallas Morning News discovered the latest act of kindness.
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. Doc, who planned to spend his day passing out flyers for a few bucks, accepted a rain check before realizing that he recognized the generous gentleman.
"Was that Tony Romo?" Doc asked the kid behind the counter.
It sure was. Doc hustled across the street to the consignment store that paid him to occasionally pass out flyers and requested the day off. By the time he got back to the theater, "Role Model" had already started. Romo, who confirmed the story but didn't want to elaborate, waved Doc over to sit by him and his buddy.
Doc sheepishly mentioned that he hadn't showered in a few days. "Don't worry about that," Romo said. "I'm used to locker rooms."
And so the $67 million quarterback and a man who doesn't have $6.70 to his name sat next to each other and shared laughs for 90 minutes or so.
For Romo, who made news by changing a couple's tire on the side of the road on the way home the night of the season opener, it was just another kind gesture to a random stranger. It meant the world to Doc.
"For me, it was a blessing," Doc said. "It came at just the right time. It gave me some encouragement and faith in mankind. I just wanted to say thank you."
