Wow! It's been a long time since I've done one of these. So long, I couldn't find the old Take 2 logo, and I had to make a new one.
To get you up to speed, it's a little like "Unfinished Business" and "Follow Up File." It's a revised opinion on a previous topic. More often than not, I will admit when I'm wrong.
Today, it's Tony Romo.
The Dallas Cowboys' quarterback retired last year and took a job with CBS Sports. The head of the sports division took the gutsy move and installed a rookie as part of the #1 NFL team. Back when it happened, I said it was an unwise move. Groom the guy. Give him lesser games. Learn the craft. In a few years, he'll be ready for the top.
While I didn't see and hear Romo's regular season debut, I have read the reviews. They are all consistently very good. The head of CBS Sports now looks like a genius, and the hesitant crowd, including me, appear to be ninnies.
I was wrong-- to a limited extent. Even though Romo's first game was good, I still would have taken the conservative route.
Although, I'm reminded of something Larry King once said about risk takers: They're hurt more, but they're also rewarded more.
Bottom line: CBS seems to have found itself a new star, and former #1 analyst Phil Simms has a nice new home in the studio.
