When former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo isn’t in the broadcast booth calling NFL games, chances are you can find him on the golf course. The man is a scratch golfer, actually, so it’s no surprise he spends his weeks with friends on the links.
A few days after he called the Cowboys loss against the New York Jets on CBS back in October 2019, Romo played a round at the Maridoe Golf Club in Carrolton, Texas with ex-NBA star Deron Williams. Everything seemed like it was going smoothly… until it wasn’t.
After a hole, with Williams secretly filming with his phone’s camera, Romo put his putter and a couple of wedges back in his bag before recording his score. Then, when he got out of the golf cart to get something, he noticed a big snake.
However, it was a fake snake, and his reaction to the prank was priceless.
Tony Romo’s Fake Snake Prank
Romo, who has spent some time playing playing in Pro-Ams and PGA Tour events, hasn’t moved like that since his rookie year, and it was a hilarious moment to watch the former starting quarterback jump out of the way. The “son of a bitch” comment directed at the former Utah Jazz superstar on the links Wednesday just adds even more humor to it.
“I’m sorry @tony.romo I had to do it!!! All this proves is if they put u back there for a few snaps u could shake off them ankle tackles. Now on the other hand if that was a real snake the first time u walked by it you would have gotten bit. @hissalot strikes again. #gottem #hewasntready #gotstobemorecareful #puthimincoach #whitemencanjump #tonytoetap #dontlaughitcouldhappentoyou”Advertisement

Putting a fake snake by Romo’s golf cart was genius. It might be a trending way to get your friends, too.
