This guy is clearly looking for some good luck, but he’s going about it the wrong way.

A Las Vegas man is facing the death penalty for a double-murder he’s being accused of if convicted in his upcoming trial. But if he does go down, he wants to do it sporting his favorite player’s jersey.

Via The Las Vegas Review-Journal:

“This week, the 62-year-old made an unusual request. Instead of a traditional shirt and tie most incarcerated male defendants wear during trial, he wants to put on his Tony Romo jersey.

He knows that the quarterback retired last year after 14 seasons in the NFL. Number 9 lost 44-6 to the rival Philadelphia Eagles on the final Sunday in Dec. 2008, the last game Randolph could have seen as a free man. He didn’t reveal whether donning the attire was intended as a legal tactic.

When asked why Randolph requested the sports apparel, one of his lawyers, Special Public Defender Clark Patrick, said simply: “Because he’s a Cowboys fan.”

Thomas Randolph, who is accused of hiring a hitman to kill his sixth wife and then killing the hitman, has waited nearly nine years for his double murder trial.
