Can a Renaissance Man Win in the NFL?

Tony Romo didn't qualify for the U.S. Open.

This raises a lot of questions:

1. Should he have tried in the first place?

2. Is he totally dedicated to football?

3. Are football players entitled to have hobbies?

4. If the answer to #3 is yes, then what type of hobbies? Competitive athletic hobbies? Competitive hobbies? Wood carving? Yoga in a chair?

5. Does the existence of this hobby suggest that he's distracted?

6. Should he have spent this time studying film, working with a trainer, etc.?

Just asking.

But there will be some people out there who think that this is a bad thing because it distracts him from football. There will be others who will demonstrate statistical proof that distracted quarterbacks don't win championships.

I'm not sure this means anything one way or another, except it shows that Tony Romo likes golf and is pretty good at it.

Most of us, in comparison, can't throw a spiral, and, if we can, can throw it about twenty yards, and then, if so, only about 10 times before reaching for Advil and ice.
