Topic: "Hold On Romo" (2)
Frodo's disdain for the State of Texas is well-documented. Chronologically, Frodo's opinion begins in San Antonio, where the Alamo is designated as the sacred symbol of the independence won from Mexico. Davy Crockett, Sam Houston, and a countless number of the other participants, were from Tennessee. Most Texans were too chicken-hearted to even take a break from their busy schedules. Geologically speaking, Texas is an ugly stretchmark upon the body of the United States. Were it not for the petroleum deposits and the cattle trails passing through the state, there would be absolutely no reason for any human or halfling to consider anything other than transit through this wretched, treeless entrance to Hell.
The only United States Secretary of the Treasury to declare personal bankruptcy was a Texan, John Connolly. The President of the United States who first created deficit spending in a vain attempt to maintain both "guns and butter" was a Texan, Lyndon Johnson. The worst traffic jam in the history of the United States occurred during the government-sponsored evacuation from Houston preceding Hurricane Wilma in October, 2006. All of these facts, and undoubtedly thousands more, pall before the reality that the only President of the United States to do damage to our country, who is by every imaginable standard the worst President we have ever known, is also a Texan. Frodo is content not even mentioning the moron's name.
Frodo has often said that the only good thing coming out of the State of Texas is the highway sign that says "You are Now Leaving." Frodo particularly dislikes the Dallas Cowboys Football Team, an organization arrogant enough to call itself "America's Team." Frodo exhibits his dark side when he revels in the disgrace of the Cowboys on national television, in front of God and country. Yesterday was one such day, and Frodo's celebration continues even now.
The arrogant and ignorant fans of the Cowboys were in love with a rookie quarterback named Tony Romo. Given their lack of knowledge, they were attempting to elevate him to sainthood for having done relatively well in a few games early in the season. Every Texas sweetie with chemically-enhanced glands was hot for the new hero. That is, until yesterday.
In case you didn't see it, Frodo has the scene laminated for future viewing. It shows Romo mis-handling the snap from center just as the Cowboys were attempting to kick a game-winning field goal. He was tackled with the ball in his possession, and the Cowboys lost the game, eliminating themselves from the Championship Play-Offs.
He walked, all alone, back to the clubhouse, and not one single teammate was shown even trying to console the kid.
Class act, eh? The eyes of Texas are on Tony Romo, and their minds are in the gutter.
