08:01 AM ET 01.26 | During a recent radio appearance, Tony Romo was asked whether he should be playing basketball and golf. "You know football is my mornings and early afternoons. Then there's a lot more time in the day and I'm a competitive individual. ... I wouldn't exaggerate and pretend I'm jumping for rebounds up by the rim anytime soon, but I'll pull up and hit a three and usually guard out by the three point line extended. I'm pretty safe when I'm out there. It's a good chance for me to move your hips to do things you need to do to get in shape. I think it's all just a little bit of a process of kind of getting yourself to be playing your best on Sunday's ... "

Well Otis - it's nice to know that not only can the Cowboys flash some talent on the golf course but on the basketball court as well. Now if they could only translate that to the football field....woo-hoo!!!! ARGH!!!

Wow. Fascinating. Hopefully, he'll take up parachuteless skydiving. It's all the rage.

They clearly have run out of stories to run, I was looking for something like Teams to Herschel Walker: No.

I hear winning SBs is also the rage.

Who cares what he does in the offseason, it's what he does on the field that counts.

How about an Ochocinco thread. He's changing his name back to Johnson. I think he should stick with the Spanish motif, though, and try something like "Tonto."

Actually, he's not so much the problem as other areas on that team.

Also not newsworthy, but damn funny!

He makes plans far in advance that would conflict with playing any SB. Probably a realist.

Truth, and it starts with the owner.

And I wonder why. Maybe because he figures when and if he lands on another team he won't get his 85. Easier to have Johnson on his back than deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeebag.

He should change it back to "Johnson" if only to maintain the truth in advertisement credo.

As in... He is a Johnson.

I read somewhere that apparently Chad and TO want to play for the Jets, like that team doesn't already have a big enough ego.

For variety, he could try Mecury or Evinrude.
