Girls hearts are breaking everywhere across America (Jessica Simpson)… Tony Romo is officially off the market. The Dallas Cowboys quarterback who is known more for his good looks than his throwing arm married Candice Crawford. Candice is the younger sister of Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford and a former Miss Missouri.
The couple enlisted the wedding planner for NFL quarterbacks Todd Fiscus, who also planned Eli Manning’s wedding. Details are mum on the ceremony but Fiscus did say, “We did lots of man food. I have a lot of football players to feed.”
As for the guest list, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was in attendance, who had to clear his attendance with the NFL because of the lockout restrictions. The lockout is also affecting the couple’s honeymoon plans despite Romo having extra time on his hands. ”We’ll see. We haven’t really gotten there yet. We’re taking a day at a time with the lockout. We (are not) even sure if we’re gonna get to go (on) one,” Candice said.
In a twisted six-degrees of separation, Romo dated American Idol country singer Carrie Underwood who also dated Candice’s brother Chace Crawford.
With the NFL locked out, the Players Union is advising draft players to skip this year in protest of the owners… but how can the players ask rookies to boycott the draft when even Tom Brady still gets emotional remembering his experience… and here I thought Gisele was suppoesed to be the emotional one!
With next year’s NFL season still up in the air, players are trying to get by where they can, if that means moving in with their parents or changing careers. Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Chad Ochocino is trying out for an MLS team. The controversial wide receiver has a four-day tryout with Sporting Kansas City. Ochocinco confirmed his possible career change via Twitter saying, “Due to the NFL lockout, I’m excited to be able to follow my childhood dream of playing for a Major League Soccer team.”
While Sporting Kansas City is claiming this is not a publicity stunt, they were in the news last week for announcing that their new stadium would be called Livestrong Sporting Park, despite Lance Armstrong’s foundation not paying for naming rights.
With next year’s NFL season uncertain, NY Jets Matt Slauson is not taking any chances and moved back in with his parents along with his wife and baby. Despite Slauson starting all 16 games last season and earning more than $400,000, Slauson told the New York Times, “I’m constantly working with my budgets, I know that this week could be my last week in the NFL, and then I won’t have any more checks coming in.”
Maybe Slauson took a page out of Sidney Crosby’s book, who lived with Pittsburgh Penguins owner Mario Lemuiex for more than 5 seasons!
