Billions of people change car tires every single day. But when Tony Romo does it, the world stops, volcanoes erupt with doves, and the seas shimmer with waves of gold. Jessica Simpson‘s trapped boyfriend pulled over to help a middle-aged couple deal with their blown tire in Texas recently, and their reaction is well, priceless or pathetic, depending on how evil a person you are. Stranded motorist Sharon White details her and her husband Bill’s encounter with the football player:
“Bill was fooling with that tire, and I was standing beside the car watching him. The next thing I know, a nice-looking young man, very well-dressed, but with something strange on his chin, he walked up, smiled, and said, ‘Hey, you need some help?”
Sharon continued: “I did something no 50-year-old woman should be doing, but I screamed real loud, and then jumped up and hugged him.
Her husband Bill also freaked out: “Look, we’re driving a 10-year old car that is sitting in a parking lot with a flat tire in the dead of night. He could tell by that we’re nothing special. But here’s a young man making millions of dollars, and he’s got all this fame and glory, and he does this?” He added, “This was a good person we met. A good person with small-town values despite all the big-city fame and fortune.”
So there you have it folks. Tony Romo might as well be God, which would make Jessica Simpson’s preacher pop pretty happy, right? [NFL Fanhouse. Photo: Getty Images]
