Spurs Fans Petition White House to Ban Tony Romo From Their Games

Tony Romo at Clippers Game

Sports fans are a superstitious lot, and most of the time it probably seems like a bunch of silliness.  But there might be something more to the relatively new superstition that Tony Romo is bad for whatever team he’s pulling for, be it the Duke Blue Devils, Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks, the Los Angeles Clippers, or his own Dallas Cowboys, all of whom have suffered crucial losses in Romo’s toxic presence.

Now, fans of the San Antonio Spurs, who recently made it to the NBA Western Conference Finals, are trying to keep the Romo Curse as far away from their team as possible. To do so, they’ve petitioned the White House not just to ban Romo from the games, but to send him to Russia:

“Tony Romo hasn’t been a good luck charm for the Dallas Cowboys. In fact he has been somewhat of a curse in Dallas and for any home sports team he watches from the stands. This is well documented. Just ask Duke, Clippers, Dallas Stars, Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks even the TNT show Dallas. Here in San Antonio we want our Spurs to win the entire enchilada. Tony Romo will only bring his curse into the AT&T Center and his mojo will make the Spurs lose. In fact we should send him into Russia. That Putin mess would be so over. Please America let’s stand together and stop the Tony Romo curse. Go Spurs go!”

President Obama’s White House has a policy to respond to all petitions that get 100,000 signatures, and the Romo ban petition has until June 14th to get that response. Of course, their playoff series against the Oklahoma City Thunder starts tomorrow, so they really need a lot of signatures as soon as possible.
