Romo's Team, One Them, Anyway, Will Win a Championship Monday

Your roots? Or your rooting?

Or, if you’re still gullible and stubborn enough to believe in such a thing, the Tony Romo jinx?

Interesting to see how they all play out in Monday night’s college basketball championship game between Wisconsin and Duke.

The Cowboys’ quarterback was raised in Wisconsin, so surely the Badgers will lose. But Romo also recently accompanied head coach Jason Garrett and teammates to practice and a game at Duke, so obviously the Blue Devils have no chance.

His jinx notwithstanding, Romo has to be conflicted.

At last year’s Final Four at AT&T Stadium in Arlington he watching from a suite wearing a red Wisconsion sweat shirt. But we’ve all seen the photos and videos of him playing Duke players one-on-one and then watching a game from the famed student section of Cameron Crazies.

In reality, Romo’s is a no-lose situation Monday night.
