Reliving Tony Romo's Embarrassing Night as a Dallas Maverick

Reliving Tony Romo's Embarrassing Night as a Dallas Maverick”

It was announced a week ago that recently retired National Football League quarterback Tony Romo would be suiting up to sit on the bench during the Dallas Mavericks' final home game. But that didn't stop fans from chanting "Romo, Romo, Romo' several times during the game.On two occasions with less than three minutes remaining in the game, Romo hopped off the Mavs' bench and acted like he was headed to the scorer's table to check in the game".

The 37-year-old came out for warmups and not only made his lay ups, but he drained a 20-foot jumper in the face of Devin Harris. Romo's father-in-law, Chris Crawford, wore a Romo Mavericks T-shirt that the team was selling before the game.

"This is an honor I could never dream of", Romo said.

"I told him what I was going to do and said, 'Fine me if you don't like it", Cuban told ESPN. Romo wasn't as fortunate to do it with the Dallas Cowboys, but they forged their relationship through a love of sport and competition.

And, in return, there was little doubt that the former quarterback appreciated what was happening for him.

"Wouldn't it be special to see one of your favorite athletes running up and down on the basketball court who played football? That's on them." As I said, more than anything else, the entire stunt was harmless. Ultimately, he decided not to play for another team after losing the starting job he held for 10 years to rookie Dak Prescott following a back injury in the preseason last year. Obviously it worked out for him with the football, but I wouldn't have been surprised if he would have made it playing basketball.

Tuesday, Romo went through the team shoot around and practice in the morning, then hosted a press conference where he spoke on his excitement for tonight and about how grateful he was to be apart of the Dallas community for so long.

Romo's high school coach Steve Berezowitz described the retired quarterback as an all-around player. Standing here today I feel a little embarrassed to be honest, that you're lucky enough to be in a position that someone cares enough to do something to honor you.

It was an odd site to see the Cowboys' all-time leader in touchdown passes and the Mavericks' all-time leading scorer - and the No. 6 scorer in National Basketball Association history - getting ready for a game at the same time, even though Romo would not be allowed to play.

Romo was given the full package experience, even having his name over a locker in the locker room.

But watching Romo and especially listening to what he had to say, one thing was pretty clear. "Makes me feel special". "I always have to live with that".
