Tony Romo is Joining Jim Nantz on CBS

Today marks the end of an era for the Dallas Cowboys with not only the release of quarterback Tony Romo, but also his retirement from the NFL. The news ushers in a new legacy for the Cowboys with the team’s focus being on the 23 year old Dak Prescott.

It isn’t the end for Romo though, you’ll still be able to catch him on CBS for the foreseeable future. At the beginning of the 2017 NFL season he will be taking over for Phil Simms and will be broadcasting alongside Jim Nantz.

There is a long history of retired NFL players in the broadcast booth. Romo joins the likes of Chris Collinsworth, Frank Gifford, Don Meredith and many more as announcers.

5 things to look for when choosing a sports bar

Are you looking for a place to watch tonight’s game, and sick of getting treated like a second class sports fan because your bar of choice insists on showing the rival team instead of yours? Here is our quick picks for what to look for in a sports bar.

When selecting a spot to watch a game, you should probably pick a spot that has TVs that you can actually watch. Don’t be that guy in the corner of the bar squinting at the small TV while everyone else watches an obscure anime movie on the 100″ projector.
