Quite the company Tony Romo's keeping these days -- Michael Jordan, nice. The twosome were, no doubt, awesome yesterday during their practice round at the American Century Championship celeb golf tourney in Lake Tahoe; the celeb-am just got underway. And, really, quite the guest list chock full o' famous faces (Don Cheadle, Ray Romano) and sportsy locals: fellow Dallas Cowboy Terence Newman, former Cowboy Emmitt Smith, Dallas Stars general manager Brett Hull, Dallas Maverick Jason Kidd (not a Net, fellas, c'mon) and ... Mark Cuban as a caddy? No doubt, he's doing it for charity: In the past he's toted bags to raise some scratch for the Fallen Patriots Fund -- $750,000 in '04 dollars. Ah, but does he know Judge Smails? --Robert Wilonsky
