Tony Romo Got Engaged

“Take me to butter. And step on it.”

While news of an engagement was falsely reported a year ago in what I can only assume was an effort to inflate Rocky Road futures, Tony Romo officially proposed to his girlfriend Candice Crawford yesterday, according to Us Magazine:

Dating since September 2009, Romo, 30, proposed to Crawford (a one-time Miss Missouri and sister to Gossip Girl’s Chace Crawford) in Dallas on Thursday, her 24th birthday.
Romo, who broke his collarbone in October and hasn’t played since, dated Simpson for nearly two years; he ended their relationship in July 2009, the night before her 29th birthday. Before Simpson, he also romanced Carrie Underwood and actress Sophia Bush.

This, of course, raises the question, what is Jessica Simpson going to do now considering she already forced Eric Johnson to propose to her immediately after Nick Lachey’s engagement to Vanessa Minnillo? While a rushed holiday wedding seems to be the likely scenario, that would also lessen her Christmas ham intake, forcing her into a hyper-alert gathering state for the rest of the winter.

ASHLEE: Mom, can you get me a wipe? Bronx has chocolate all over him.
JESSICA: Awroooo?
ASHLEE: No, wait- Dad! The tranquilizer!
JOE: Her eyes have gone red! EVERYONE, DOWN! *fires*
JOE: I’ll take it from here. Honey, get everyone downstairs. This might be a while.
JESSICA: *whimpers*
JOE: ♫ Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Double D Lane… ♫
