DALLAS - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones sat in his multi-million dollar air-conditioned luxury suite with beads of sweat running down his forehead.
He had just watched his star quarterback get tackled and hammered to the ground by New York Giants linebacker Michael Boley, causing the hit to break Romo's clavicle.
At first Jones remarked to his sons that perhaps Tony had just had the wind knocked out of him. He then thought that maybe he was just having some neck cramps. But he soon realized that it was much more serious after the field referee called him on his cell phone.
Jones quickly rushed down from his luxurious suite and headed over to the stadium's medical facility to begin filling out the necessary insurance paperwork.
Romo and the rest of the Dallas Cowboys are all covered under The Silver Helmet Health Insurance Plan which is based in nearby Fort Worth.
Last year they dropped the coverage that they had with Parimutuel of Odessa because of the fact that it had gone up on its co-pay from $20 to $40.
After the game Romo was asked how his clavicle was feeling. He replied that it felt like he had just had it sat on by Kirstie Alley, Gabourey Sidibe, Wynonna Judd, and Conchatta Ferrell all at the same time.
The Cowboys 41-35 loss to the Giants pretty much has ended their hopes of even making it to the playoffs much less the Super Bowl as many sports writers had believed. Many of the Dallas fans are asking for refunds for tickets they had purchased for future games.
Jones, who since Romo's injury has aged 10 years, has stated that he runs a football team and not Wal-Mart and that he will not honor receipts or give anyone their money back. He paused and added that if he started doing that, that he would never end up paying off the $1.1 billion he borrowed to build the stadium.
SIDENOTE: Jones did say that in order to save some money he is seriously considering laying off about six of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders.
