Tony Romo Proved He’s The Best Sports Commentator Last Night With His Hilarious 'Rocky' Quotes

The man can do it all!
Tony Romo As A Sports Commentator Is Something Fans Can Get Behind

If you're familiar with the Dallas Cowboys, then you're familiar with Tony Romo, it's just that simple. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback has taken up several hobbies since his days on the field, including sports commentating! After lots of practice, "Tony Romo" and "sports commentator" have become something you can often hear in the same sentence and he was hitting an ultimate high last night. 

Fans had a lot of good things to say about Romo's commentating skills last night, especially with him throwing in the enthusiastic Rocky reference.

We'll get to that later.

It's not uncommon to see former NFL players on the other side of the sports world once their career on the field comes to an end, but it is worth celebrating when they end up being great at it.

When you're as big of a legend as Romo is, you certainly have the upper hand. 

Twitter user CoachTeixeira tweeted "Tony romo with the greatest commentary of all time!"

They followed up their claim with a line that Romo used during his commentary of the Texan game. "'It’s like watching Rocky when he’s getting punched over and over, he’s not losing he’s getting mad!'” 

If there's an easy way to win people's hearts when it comes to commentating, it's quoting one of the greatest movies ever made.

Certainly, other factors play a role, such as voice, tone, and overall knowledge of the sport that's being broadcast.

Sports fans are a tough crowd to please, so sometimes even that isn't enough!

Twitter user aubreyybadger tweeted "Me listening to any other commentator vs. me listening to Tony Romo," with a hilarious dog meme below it.

The dog is clearly upset in the first photo, and blissful in the second. 

Now that Romo has gotten such a great reaction from fans, his current free agent status may be changing very soon. 

Rumors have it that ESPN is preparing a massive offer for Romo to leave CBS as an analyst and become the lead analyst for ESPN's "Monday Night Football."

It'd be silly for him to turn it down, so it's just a matter of time before he's back in the big leagues!

Like @DavidWysong_ tweeted above, "Every game is 100 times better when Tony Romo is commentating it."

You've got that right!
