Today Romo was interviewed by the Dallas media regarding his weekend getaway to Mexico with Jessica and the Wittens and this is basically what he had to say about it as reported by DMN Blog
Romo certainly didn't apologize for leaving the country during the bye weekend. He did what he thought was best to prepare himself for a playoff run.
You might think Romo spent the whole weekend swigging Coronas and snuggling with Jessica Simpson, but that's not the case. I can't say for sure if Jason Witten ran any seam routes on the beach for Romo, but they did watch the full slate of NFL playoff games.
"I know what I needed to get myself in a position to hopefully be successful," Romo said. "You know, people asking for tickets, media requests, all these things doing the weekend – I was able to put the phone aside and get myself ready and watch some football for two straight days. It was really fun and exciting."
A lot of folks think Romo should focus more on football than romancing, but he said he doesn't sweat perception.
"I'm content in my own skin and who I am as a person – and what I've tried to do to get to this point," Romo said. "I don't feel the need to live a life that's perceived. I don't want to be fake. You know, I don't want in any way to do those things. If I feel like something is going to help me or this team, I'm gonna do it."
But what about Bill Parcells commandment saying thou shall not be a celebrity quarterback?!
"You're talking about a celebrity coach," Romo said with a smirk.
The comment about Parcells is priceless!
