Romo, Tiger, Jason Campbell at Congressional

From the Tiger Woods Foundation:

AT&T National host Tiger Woods will be grouped with Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo during the Earl D. Woods Memorial Pro-Am on Wednesday, July 1. Also playing in the Pro-Am will be Washington Redskins Quarterback Jason Campbell, Redskins Wide Receiver Antwaan Randle El and Washington Capitals Head Coach Bruce Boudreau.

Tiger, Tiger, Tiger. You're trying to establish a foothold in D.C. You're trying to make this city identify with you more than every other city in the country identifies with you, if that's possible. And, for your Pro-Am playing partner, you're choosing the most-hated player from D.C.'s most-hated team? At an event where the quarterback of D.C.'s most-beloved team, plus a fun-loving beloved coach with a 9 handicap, were also potential playing partners?

So, are D.C. fans gonna heckle the sand wedge out of Romo? Is heckling allowed during the Pro-Am? Is there any chance Campbell can catch fire in a golf bag and go out and shoot a 70?

I don't do golf (pretty much all baseball, all the time), but I did find some golf heckling suggestions:

I guess Woods wants his group to choke at the 17th hole.

Hey Tiger, why not add Ron Hextall, Cuahtemoc Blanco, Peter Angelos, and a drunken 26-year old green-hatted Red Sox fan named "Boston Sully" who recently moved to DC from Wellesley Hills to your group while your at it? Consolidate the Hate!

No playoff win for that team. Maybe Romo will fumble the ball putting it on the tee and Tiger will cry "he's my playing partner" WAH!!

Why would 'skins fans hate Romo? It's not like he's bringing titles to Dallas or anything at DC's expense.

i'm guessing ARE's tee shots will go side-to-side before falling down after going 5 yards.

You know what you almost never see in the gallery of a PGA tour event? Air horns during the back swing! Sounds like it is time to establish a new tradition.

Laughing out loud here, noslok!

I am sure a quick call to Danny boy and a small donation to the Earle Woods foundation and we can...... wait, Snyder secretly loves the cowboys and follows everything they do first... he probably would ask to caddy for Romo!

Romo's a homo! Wow, now I feel like I'm taking up three spaces at FedEx with the grill glowing and the beer flowing.
