The Dallas Morning News — which, despite our skepticism at this story, has not secretly merged with The Onion — reports that the main activity at Romo’s stag weekend in the West Virgina woods was… several games of hide-and-seek.
“I didn’t really feel like going out, drinking that night,” says Romo. “I mean, we were there for a couple of days, so I was just like, ‘Let’s just find something to do here.’ We tried coming up with a game, but with 14 or 15 guys, there aren’t a lot of non-drinking games at that age you can do.”
Romo, who married Crawford, a Dallas reporter, in May, still seems to take great pride is his hide-and-seek victories this many months later.
“I stayed hidden for a while,” he explains. “I had a pretty good spot. It was probably about 35 minutes. It was enjoyable to win just because I got to tell them all that I was smarter than them.”
You cannot make this stuff up.
