Trevor, Angelique, and Karoline, three decidedly hipster Dallas Cowboy fans living in the trendy Silverlake region of Los Angeles, claim that Tony Romo’s late-game meltdown against the Washington Redskins on Sunday night is nowhere near as good as the quarterback’s earlier, less mainstream failures.
“Ugh, it figures that this game will have the highest ratings of the year,” scoffed Trevor, as he watched highlights of Romo’s three interceptions via his Apple iPhone 5. “Middle America just eats up these prime time games with their playoff implications. But if you want to see real vintage Romo failure, you have to look to the Detroit game last year, or the less well known, but spectacularly more epic Eagles game in week 17 of the 2008 season.”
“Those are classic Romo meltdowns,” added Karoline. “You’ve probably never even heard of them.”
“People think about Romo’s screwups, and they always talk about that dropped snap against Seattle from 2006,” said Angelique. “Pfft. Typical American sheeple fans. If you want to see the real Romo, without all that mainstream bullshit, check out the Steelers loss from ’08. Back then, I was calling Romo ‘the Derp King’ before anyone else was.”
While most of the nation’s NFL fans are discussing Romo and the Cowboys latest season ending failure today, the three eclectic Dallas fans say they are already looking to lesser known quarterback entities.
“There’s this kid in Arizona, Brian Hoyer. He’s just started blowing leads and losing games. Real underground, off-the-radar type stuff. I’m sure you’ve never heard of him.”
