Tony Romo Creates Instagram Account, First Video Delights Social Media

Tony Romo

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo opened an Instagram account Thursday, much to the delight of social media.

Romo's first post is a video of his sons, Hawkins and River, playing football in their yard. As of Friday morning, it already has more than 175,000 views. [[415324723,C]]

The 4-year-old Hawkins is playing quarterback while his 2-year-old brother Rivers is the wide receiver.

After some confusion before the snap — Hawkins "forgot what to say" to start the play — and some trouble with Rivers' route, "Hawk" fired a pass into his brother's chest...much to Rivers' chagrin.

"I did a really good throw," Hawkins said as his brother cried.

Romo seemed torn between congratulating one son on a good pass and consoling the other who was crying.

Twitter was abuzz Friday morning with people reacting to Romo's first video.
