Unless you have shut off all media access in the past year, you know that Tony Romo has had no trouble staying in the news. We also continue to see our favorites Roger Staubach and Troy Aikman pop up in headlines from time to time. If only Danny White and Don Meredith could do something noteworthy, we could have an entire blog focusing only on Cowboy quarterbacks.
We’ll start with Romo, who is partially the subject of the cover of Country Weekly, which features a certain blonde. The DMN Cowboys blog wonders if there may be a jinx involved:
Cowboys fans better hope not, because the current issue of this magazine I had never heard of until moments ago has a cover story about the Tony Romo-Carrie Underwood romance.
I discovered this after doing a “Tony Romo” Google search to investigate a rumor Julie in the office heard that Romo was dating another starlet. Julie heard a tease on a local radio show, but wasn’t interested enough to stick around to listen to the dirt. If any of you have any tips about this very important news, feel free to pass them on.
I promise this will be the last post of the day about NFL quarterbacks on random magazine covers.
Roger Staubach announced that he would step down as the CEO of The Staubach Company:
Roger Staubach, the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, will step down as chief executive and become executive chairman of the real estate consulting firm he built after his football career ended.
The Staubach Company announced the change Tuesday, along with what it called a long-planned recapitalization of the company, which is expected to be completed by June 30.
Mr. Staubach, 65, has held the titles of chairman and chief executive of the company, which is based in Dallas. He said he would continue to work full time. Gregory P. O’Brien, president for the company’s Northeast region, will become chief executive.
The Staubach Company advises companies on office, industrial and retail real estate.
Lastly, Troy Aikman knows concussions.
As soon as the recent study linking football-related concussions to depression was released, former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman knew people would start wondering about him.
For the record, Aikman said he is fine and has no recurring symptoms from the 10 concussions he suffered during a Hall of Fame career with the Cowboys.
Although he suffers from migraines that date to childhood, Aikman said he is “completely healthy.”
“I feel very fortunate that I got out of the game when I did,” Aikman said. “My back feels great now. My back was the biggest concern for me. I retired more from my back than the concussions.”
