The NFL regular season is winding down. The playoffs are just around the corner. But the quest for the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy isn’t what’s making headlines in the football world. If you haven’t heard, Dallas Cowboys’ Quarterback Tony Romo popped the question to his girlfriend Candice Crawford, a sports reporter, on Thursday as the couple celebrated the former Miss Missouri’s birthday. As you may already know, the injured QB was in a relationship with singer and actress Jessica Simpson that ended in 2009. A majority of Dallas fans blamed Simpson for Romo’s poor performance on the field. Then again, he’s dating Crawford and broke his collarbone. Anyway, another one of Simpson’s beau’s is taking the plunge. Sorry Jess. I’m guessing she won’t be sending out any well wishes to her former flame. So I guess we will. Congrats Tony and Candice.

Tony Romo doesn't do much that isn't high-profile, but his relationship with 24-year-old sports reporter Candice Crawford has been decidedly low-key in the public.
