The good news? At least the Cowboys won't be going to the Super Bowl. The bad news? The line between ESPN and Access Hollywood will continue to blur as I'm quite certain that Sportscenter, Around the Horn, Jim Rome is Burning, Mike and Mike, Pardon the Interruption, and whatever else I'm missing will all take more time talking about what affect Jessica Simpson had on the Cowboys' performance than they will about all of the NHL games played over the weekend combined(the Hurricanes, for the record, blew a lead against the Avs to continue their woeful last few months).
Since I'm clearly a follower, I must also weigh in. All of Dallas had the time off. The whole team. If Romo wasn't on a "sexy, romantic getaway" with Jessica Simpson and her dad(only Jessica Simpson's dad could possibly find chaperoning his daughter's date sexy and romantic...because he's creepy like that...have you ever heard him talk about his daughter's breasts?), he would have been somewhere else not playing football, not watching film, and not studying the play book. Can we please talk about sports now?
