Wisconsin’s Romo Honored By Dallas

Antigo, WI, United States /

(Dallas, TX)  —  The Dallas Mavericks have given Wisconsin native Tony Romo a chance to be saluted by the city’s sports fans. Romo put on an N-B-A uniform Tuesday night and sat on the bench for the Mavericks in their 109-91 home loss to Denver. Romo, who’s from Burlington in Racine County, retired from pro football last month after a 13 year career as quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys. He wore his familiar Number nine as he took part in the Mavericks’ pregame warm-ups and their shoot-around earlier Tuesday — and he looked halfway respectable as he made a three pointer. Romo was often in the stands for Mavericks’ games, and he called it a “huge honor” for the team and the city to recognize him like they did — and he’ll become the Number One analyst on next season’s N-F-L game broadcasts on C-B-S.
