Tony Romo hasn't even finished his first full season as the Dallas Cowboys' starting QB, but already there's a tome-o about Romo (cough, sorry): Tony Romo: America's Next Quarterback. Astute readers will notice two things: It's being published by the same Random House Publishing Group imprint responsible for Frank Luksa's Cowboys Essential: Everything You Need to Know to be a Real Fan!. And it was penned by Fort Worth Star-Telegram Cowboys reporter Mac Engel, who'll be happy to sign the book for you this week at a Boston's pizza or Borders Books near you, if you live in FW. --Robert Wilonsky
