The One Thing a Dallas Cowboys Fan Wants to Hear

In the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly, Carrie Underwood says, yeah, she and Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo were this close to being a couple. (This, after previously insisting they were just good friends.) But Romo wouldn't commit -- couldn't, says the former American Idol, who's now dating some other dude from Dallas. And why not? Yup -- football.

"At one point it seemed like [being a couple is] where it was headed," she says, "but point blank, he is about football. I don't know if it's that I'm not quite his type or whatever, but I don't think he's at the point in his life where he would be willing to sacrifice football. He hated so much that people thought that he was paying more attention to me and that was causing him to not do well."
