Jessica Simpson Unamused At NFL Burger King Ad

I wouldn’t have a problem with this if it were funnier, or less filled with irony. But the NFL’s new TV ad featuring Dallas Cowboys players mocking Jessica Simpson for her weight gain is now rattling around the web, and I suppose it’s up to us to view it.

Sample hilarity from the animated ad, which aired Oct. 11 on Fox NFL Sunday: Marion Barber says, “Man, I still can’t believe Tony dated Jessica Simpson, even after she blew up bigger than Flozell Adams!” Cowboys coach Wade Phillips also joins in on the joke, which is more ironic than I can tell you. The ad is sponsored by Burger King, although the empty-calorie purveyors seem to have had no actual part in producing it. So The King waking up in bed next to some random guy is suddenly no longer good enough?

Speed Read: Romo, Jones Have Different “Picks”

Usually, Tony Romo saves his worst for last, shining as the season begins but falling apart in December and January. But hey, last night was kind of a big game - it was the first “official” game at the new Cowboys Stadium, and it was a national TV audience against the arch-rival New York Giants. So I guess you can’t blame Romo for reverting to his late-season form and throwing up all over himself in the Cowboys’ 33-31 loss.

Tony Romo vs Giants

Romo threw three picks - including one that was returned for a touchdown - and generally looked more spooked than a race horse that’s just been hit with a firecracker. But despite this, the Cowboys actually led late, and it looked like Dallas might pull out an improbable victory. Read more…

Tony Now Romo-ancing Dallas Sports Reporter?

Gentlemen & Tony Romo prefer blondes. Well, that’s the conclusion I’ve come to after learning that the Cowboys QB has supposedly landed a new lady love. After previously cuddling with Carrie Underwood & snuggling with Jessica Simpson, Tony has apparently been canoodling with one Candice Crawford.

Candice Crawford Tony Romo

Candice is a sports reporter for Dallas TV station WDAF, a.k.a. “The 33″. Oh, and she’s a former Miss Missouri who also happens to be the sister of “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford. Not a bad trophy for Tony.

Tony Romo Is Drunken & Charming…And Cursed?

When you first heard that superstar power couple Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson had split, you probably thought that was the last you’d have to hear about Simpson on your daily sports blog reads. You might have even thought you’d be able to make it through a Cowboys game without being constantly reminded of Simpson’s existence. You thought you’d be free to continue your loathing of the Cowboys in peace, the way it was meant to be.

Jessica Simpson

(Keep that mouth shut, and everything will be fine)

Yeah, well, guess what, chump? You thought wrong. The Romo/Simpson stories are never going away, and you’re going to suck it up and read them like the man (or woman) you are. Did you hear - Tony was cheating, or at least trying to cheat, on Jessica! And that’s not even the half of it…

Colt Brennan Denies Hookup with Jessica Simpson

I have a feeling you’ll take this news the same way you did when you found out that Alex Rodriguez broke up with Madonna; or that James Brown wears a hairpiece … Colt Brennan is denying reports that he’s romantically involved with Jessica Simpson. The Redskins’ third-string quarterback is pleading ignorance over the whole thing, which is good for the Redskins I suppose, but bad for STAR MAGAZINE, which started the whole thing last week.

Colt Brennan, Jessica Simpson

Brennan, the former University of Hawaii star, has other things to worry about, however. In denying his involvement with Tony Romo’s ex-girlfriend, he referred to teammate Chris Cooley as his “life coach.” That’s troubling on several different levels.
