Tony Romo will finally make it to the Super Bowl, but it likely won’t be how he envisioned it.
Tony Romo went from being one of the most made-fun-of people in professional football to being one of the most well-liked, and all it took was a career change.
The former four-time Pro-Bowl Dallas Cowboys QB retired after the 2016 season in order to join CBS as a broadcaster, where he flourished in his first season on the job after taking the seat of Phil Simms, becoming infamous for predicting plays before they played out on the field. Romo was even nominated for an Emmy along with being named Sports Illustrated’s “2017 Media Person of the Year”.
Romo resounding success has now landed him on the job of calling the biggest sporting event in American Sports, the Super Bowl. Along side Jim Nantz, Romo will call Super Bowl LIII from Atlanta for CBS on Feb. 4, 2018.
