Sports Tony Romo, Jessica Simpson, and Bothell, WA

Can we claim a local, vested interest in more than one athletic choke job this weekend? The New York Post thinks so. Their Dallas Cowboys game prank yesterday at Texas Stadium has been making the Internet rounds this morning, and wouldn’tcha know it:
Simpson [as in Jessica, girlfriend of ‘Boys QB Tony Romo] didn’t show up yesterday, but The Post brought [Lynsey] Nordstrom - a 21-year-old nanny from Bothell, Wash. - to Texas Stadium. We sat her in the third row behind the Dallas bench, and she must have made the difference - Romo’s final drive was stopped short of the end zone.
Not just any nanny, of course—a blonde nanny in a pink Tony Romo jersey. An impersonator! The whole idea is that this professional lookalike would wave and wink and cause an uproar, much like the real Jessica did a few weeks back to earn the nickname “Yoko Romo” from sports fans. A repeat distraction would then give Romo a perma-bone and thus impact his play (“Why’d you run to the left, T.O.?” “Cuz that’s where you were pointing!”). But here’s the problem with this genius plan:
Something tells me that Nordstrom’s claim to fame is being the best Jessica Simpson lookalike…in Bothell, WA. Anyone who watched the game knows that the blame rests on many Cowboys variables other than Fake Jess—the no-show by defensive safety Roy Williams, a bunch of overpaid guys letting passes slip through their hands, that stupid motherfucker Roy Williams, and so on. But on the bright side, perhaps we can milk the local girl’s 15 minutes and secure her services for a Strangercrombie ‘08 auction. “Attend a football game with Bothell’s Jess!” “Take Bothell’s Jess to Aveda!” Oh, the possibilities.
