Cracked ribs, cracked shmibs

Much has been made about Tony Romo’s return to the football game on Sunday and leading his team to victory with broken ribs.

Words like courage and heroic have been bandied about quite a bit when describing Romo’s performance. 

The last time I played flag football with my buddies, I suffered a concussion and my friend, Shep, broke two ribs. 

The only difference is we kept playing despite the pain, and no one called us heroes. 

Shep didn’t even realize that his ribs were broken until a few days later. 

Just sayin’.
