Tony Romo Wedding Set To Take Place Today at Arlington Hall
The NFL season is still in jeopardy and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, never one to have trouble finding something else to do, is at least taking his time off to push his career in a better direction.
The fun-loving, oft-smiling quarterback has very much been in need of a settled personal life stretching back to the Jessica Simpson relationship a few years back.
We all remember the "Simpson Game" where Romo performed terribly in front of his then-girlfriend, and it is hard to forget the vacation he took just a week before the Cowboys played the Giants in the playoffs.
Being the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys comes with added publicity and pressure, but Romo has done himself no favors in the past.
Until now that is.
Romo and Candice Crawford, a former reporter, beauty queen and sister of television star Chace Crawford, are getting married today at Arlington Hall at Lee Park.
The couple plan on keeping it as low key as possible, and that includes Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
Jones had to jump through a few hoops to make it possible, but he'll be present yet unable to talk football with his quarterback.
Romo is coming of a year marred by injury and is now in position to help rebuild the Dallas Cowboys' reputation with new coach Jason Garrett.
With no work between teams and football players allowed, Romo's wedding has come at the perfect time for a guy incapable of avoiding distraction.
Injured Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is engaged to be married to former Miss Missouri Candice Crawford.
Crawford works as a sports reporter for KDAF-TV in Dallas. The station reports that the 30-year-old player proposed to Crawford while the couple were celebrating her 24th birthday at a Dallas restaurant on Thursday.
