Ramiro and Joan Romo welcomed Antonio Ramiro Romo into the family in San Diego, California on April 21, 1980. Ramiro was serving in the United States Navy and had moved his family from Wisconsin to California four years earlier. “Tony” was Ramiro and Joan’s third child and only son behind two girls: Danielle, 4 and Jossalyn 2. The Romo family moved to Burlington, Wisconsin in July of 1982. There they raised their three children from elementary school through high school graduation.
By the age of six Tony was already very active in sports. His love for competition began when he would tag along with his father and watch him play intramural basketball at the city gym. Basketball became Tony’s first love in the sports arena, but he would still go on to participate in several other sports.

Here a short little story about Tony Romo that actually happened.
A homeless man who goes by Doc was cashing in change at a Cinemark Theatre in Dallas when a guy walked up and offered to pay his way into the movie. He planned to spend his day passing out fliers and accepted a rain check before realizing that he recognized the generous gentleman.
“Was that Tony Romo?” Doc asked the worker behind the counter.
It sure was. Doc, who requested that his real name not be used, hustled across the street to the consignment store that paid him to occasionally pass out fliers and requested the day off. By the time he got back to the theater, Role Model had already started.
Romo, who confirmed the story but didn’t want to elaborate, waved Doc over to sit by him and his friend. Doc sheepishly mentioned that he hadn’t showered in a few days.
“Don’t worry about that,” Romo said. “I’m used to locker rooms.”
And so the $67 million quarterback and a man who doesn’t have $6.70 to his name sat next to each other and shared laughs for 90 minutes or so.
I had the chance to know him and spend some time with him, and he is for sure that kind of guy, we hope you have a great future with the Cowboys Tony.
