Tony Romo Eschewed Booze At Bachelor Party, Instead Chose To Play Hide-And-Seek

What the fungus? Seriously? Sadly, it appears to be true: instead of treating his friends (and himself) to a booze-fueled bachelor party prior to his nuptials to Chace Candice Crawford, Tony Romo opted to put the kibosh on drunken revelry and instead elected to entertain his pals while they stayed at a cabin in West Virginia with thrilling games of…Hide-And-Seek. Yep.

The Dallas Cowboys quarterback made this embarrassing admission during an interview with Yahoo! Sports’ Graham Besinger on his show In Depth with Graham Bensinger (video follows for those interested, but here are the troubling money quotes regarding what most likely could have been The .Worst. Bachelor. Party. Ever. (via People):

“I didn’t feel like going out drinking that night,” the Dallas Cowboys quarterback, 31, told Yahoo! Sports’s Graham Besinger on his show In Depth with Graham Bensinger. (Watch the full interview below.) “We tried to come up with a game, but when you’re with 14-15 guys, there aren’t a lot of non-drinking games at that age you can do.

“I just came up with some game – hide-and-go-seek, I guess it was,” he says of the booze-free activity that lasted about 35 minutes. “It was a little modified form. It was fun. We had a good time. I stayed hidden for a while. I had a pretty good spot … it was pitch black out. There were only like two lights in the whole place.

“We played twice,” Romo recalls. “I won both times. … I got to tell them all I was smarter than them. That was just part of the process. … I did come up with the game, so I probably had a pretty good idea leading up to the game that I had a chance.”

GUH. Lame, lame, lame. Romo ought to be ashamed of himself for putting his friends through the most neo maxi zoom dweebiest bachelor party ever.

Video follows.

Holy crap: Hide-and-freaking-Seek. Come on, man. Now, alcohol isn’t a necessity in order to pull off an enjoyable bachelor party, but that does not mean one needs to go in the complete opposite direction and engage in games more suited for hanging out and killing time with the neighbor kids when you are nine-years-old. Just sad. Sad, sad, sad. Tony Romo, you have emasculated yourself with not only doing what you did, but then going ahead and freely admitting to it. What, didn’t anyone think of bringing along a can for a spirited game of Kick-The-Can? How about Red Rover? Is Freeze Tag too good for Romo? How about Tiddlywinks? That’s always a rip-roaring good time.

Sorry, Tony Romo, but there is only one thing to say about your bastardized bachelor party: FAIL.
