One Thing Tony Romo Can't Fumble Away: The Top-Selling Sports Jersey

Forbes this morning guesstimates that some half a million Tony Romo jerseys have been sold this year, would would make the Cowboys QB's No. 9 the top-selling top of 2008, even when you factor in baseball, basketball and that other sport that involves some kind of frozen liquid and a circle made of vulcanized rubber. Also on the Top 10 list of jerseys sold this year: Marion Barber (at N0. 8, with some 100,000 sold) and Terrell Owens, who brings up the rear at 75,000. Still, one must wonder if Jason Witten is jealous. --Robert Wilonsky
