Seahawks To Add Tony Romo’s Bobbled Snap To Team’s Ring Of Honor
SEATTLE – During halftime of Sunday’s highly anticipated match up between the 4-1 Dallas Cowboys and 3-1 Seahawks, Seattle officials have announced that the memorable game-losing bobbled snap by Tony Romo during the 2006 NFC Playoffs will be inducted into the team’ s official ring of honor.
“This is a gesture we feel is appropriate given the excitement over this weekend’s game, and the return by Tony Romo to this, the spot of what is surely his greatest moment as a pro,” said Seattle General Manager John Schneider. “Tony’s contribution to the Seahawks victory in that game is an integral part of our franchise’s historical legacy, and we could think of no better way to honor that than to preserve it on our stadium’s ring of honor for all time.”
Seattle has reportedly sent numerous requests to Romo requesting that the Cowboys QB tke part in the ceremony, but have received no reply as of press time.
“We had this great idea where we we hand Romo a plaque commemorating that special play, and then he would drop it and we’d all get a good laugh,” Schneider told reporters. “But unfortunately, he hasn’t returned any of our messages. Though I suppose it’s possible his reply was intercepted.”
“So yes, it’s disappointing that Tony won’t be able to participate in this induction moment,” Schneider concluded. “But he’ll have other chances down the road. After all, our matchup with Dallas is a huge game with playoff implications. So I think it’s safe to say that Tony will have a spectacular new meltdown on Sunday that we can add to our honor ring in a few years.”
