I had the experience of a lifetime this week as I was able to arrange for my brother Greg to meet one of his football idols in person. Greg has been a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan (not sure how as he was born & raised in Wisconsin, but then I'm a Bear fan so I'll leave that alone). Greg and my Dad even had a road trip a few years ago to drive all the way to Canton, OH to the Football Hall of Fame to witness the induction of Deion Sanders into the Hall of Fame and get his autograph... that's how big of a fan Greg is.
JOKE of the day... so a Bears Fan, a Cowboys Fan, a Packer Fan and a 49ers fan get into a car... yep, that was Myself, Greg, my sister Brenda and my mom... we're still laughing at ourselves.
Anyhow the Dallas Cowboys quarterback, Tony Romo grew up in Burlington, WI just down the road from where we grew up. Once a summer, he returns to his hometown to host a football camp for young football players locally. When I heard he was coming to town, I put my fingers to work and was able to contact someone who put me in touch with one of Tony's really close personal friends.
What was more amazing though, Greg didn't know we were actually going to meet him. Greg knew he was in town for the camp and thought we were going to head over there with hopes we could catch a glimpse of him. I envision him saying "Dawn, there he is... can you run and get his autograph" then having me take off in my flip flops running down the football field in pouring rain trying to catch up to the 6'2" superstar quarterback. Now THAT would have been something to catch on video for YouTube. LOL
So even with the thought that we might see him, Greg is always looking out for his big sister. His thought was, well if we do actually get to see him, you should make a piece of jewelry for him to give his wife. I'm sure she'd love your jewelry. Okay, BRILLIANT THOUGHT dear brother... and why it never crossed my mind I'm still puzzled over. So I did a little research on Tony Romo's wife to get a feel for her personal style, tastes and created something that I think she'll be pleased to wear. She'll be able to root for the Dallas Cowboys without sporting that ginormous star logo. The custom designed necklace I made would allow her to be classy and elegant, allowing her support for the team an her natural beauty shine.
It was an amazing day and a great memory that we will all cherish forever! And if Tony Romo and his wife want to come to our family BBQ anytime, we'd like to extend an open invitation. Thank you for taking a sincere interest in making Greg's dream come true!
