Tony Romo to Quit Football – Start Origami League

October 23, 2011

Tony Romo, quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, has announced his intentions to quit professional football and pursue his true calling in life, Origami. “Ever since I was a boy, I gami-ed. I just can’t stop thinking about it, so I’m going to go for it” said an emotional Romo.

Origami, the art of folding little pieces of paper to make throwing away trash more enjoyable, doesn’t seem like the perfect choice for a sport at first. And in fact, at second and third it still doesn’t seem very sporty.

Our intrepid sports report Ron Ronald Ronaldson, three time all American and winner of the Hymen Trophy, after doing an exhaustive Q&A with Tony, had this to say, “He’s serious. He really wants to turn this into the next big thing, the sport of the 21st century.”

According to Tony, the league, National Origami League, will be comprised of two conferences with four divisions. Teams will be comprised of both offense and defense. Defense will have ten seconds to create an Origami piece of the opposing teams choosing while the offense throws a football to receivers for touchdowns.

When asked about the strikingly similar setup to the NFL, Tony had this to say, “Well, the NFL is popular so it makes sense”.

Ron pressed Tony about how it appears he’s making a league that would allow him to throw a lot of touchdowns. Tony replied, “Come on man, gimmie a break. It’s not about football, it’s about Gami!”

Ted Danson is reportedly an early backer of the new league. He is pressing to be the owner of a New York franchise entitled, The New York Cheers. When fellow cast mate Geoge Wendt heard of Ted’s intentions he mailed him a beer, a Boston Redsox Jersey and a plaster case of his butt. Ted then announced he was withdrawing his interest in the new venture, saying “New York is not the New Boston, and Boston is most certainly the new LA.”

Regardless of this, Tony is reported to be continuing with his venture. “I’ll never give up”. We wish him well.
