Both NFL quarterbacks now injured and out for the remainder of the 2010-2011 season, Tony Romo and Brett Favre reportedly rented a private Gulfstream, loaded up on pain killers and flew to Switzerland to cruise the ski resort bar circuit.
Romo with a broken collar bone and restraining splint and Favre with cast around his lower leg, both athletes reportedly played up their injuries in the bar and drew just the sort of attention they were hoping for. Within 20 minutes of arrival, both were buffeted by young Nordic women who carried a high probability of having the lightly colored carpeting match the drapes. Romo was heard to say, "I prefer a bare floor to carpet, actually", while Favre responded in the affirmative with his trademark grunt.
All seemed to be well with their impromptu vacation until venturing into a new establishment dubbed the Oasis Bar & Grille near the foothills of Monte Rosa. Recognized at the door, Favre was immediately denied entry by the doorman while Romo attempted to barrel through the velvet rope. A large man known only as "Jimbo" was overheard saying that he had lost money on Favre last year in a game that was supposed to be a "lock", while disdain for Romo centered on his tossing away of Jessica Simpson, supposedly Jimbo's favorite.
Kicked to the curb and later reclaimed by their private limousine, Romo and Favre were not seen in Switzerland again though their plane was later spotted in the south of France. No word yet on their desire to seek out the Oasis Bar & Grille in Cannes.
