IRVING, Texas (AP) -Tony Romo: Pro Bowler, playboy quarterback and, apparently, a Good Samaritan handy with an air compressor.
A couple says Romo helped them patch a flat tire on the side of a busy street last weekend after the Dallas Cowboys star returned home from a season-opening win at Cleveland.
Bill and Sharon White told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that at least 100 drivers ignored their broken-down Mercury before someone stopped late Sunday. Sharon White said a well-dressed man ``with something strange on his chin'' walked up and offered a hand.
Romo needed 13 stitches after his chin was split open in the 28-10 win over the Browns. He bent down and helped the Whites get their faulty air compressor to fill up the tire.
Sharon White said she asked twice before Romo confirmed her suspicions about the do-gooder's identity.
``I did something no 50-year-old woman should be doing, but I screamed real loud, and then jumped up and hugged him,'' Sharon White told the newspaper in Thursday's editions.
Bill White had a different reaction.
``Don't tell me how you guys did,'' he said he told Romo. ``I'm going home to watch it.''
