Hometown boy makes good

Number 9 in your playbook but number one in our hearts Tony Romo returns to Wisconsin to lead his Dallas Cowboys at Lambeau Field for the first time. David Moore of the Dallas Morning News comments:

Here is what Romo won't tell you. He invited a few friends to his home eight months ago to watch the NFC Championship Game between Green Bay and the New York Giants. Ask the people in that room who Romo wanted to win.

"He still roots for the Packers when he's not playing them and they can't hurt the Cowboys in the standings," said Steve Tenhagen, part of Romo's Wisconsin entourage that day. "He's not going to feed that to you guys [media] and make a big story out of it.

"But yeah, this game is going to be a big deal for him, without a doubt."

Three out of four dentists that watch football at The Green Bay Press Gazette say it will be a triumphant homecoming for Tony Romo.
