I’ll never forget the first time feeling pain as a Dallas Cowboys fan…
The year is 2007, and the Cowboys are trailing the Seattle Seahawks 21-20 in the first round of the playoffs for the 2006 season. Tony Romo leads the team downfield for what should be a cakewalk field goal to win the game as time expires…
Then, the unthinkable happens.
Romo was the holder for field goals at the time, and sure enough, HE FUMBLED THE SNAP to lose the game 21-20.
Seven-year-old me was in shambles.
He picked up the botched snap and nearly ran it in for a touchdown, but was caught from behind a few feet from the goal line.
Needless to say, that play is still forever etched in the minds of Cowboys fans.
Romo's botched snap 😬
