A calamitous offseason fed into a depressing 1-3 start for the Redskins, but fans at Duffy's Irish Pub in Washington, D.C. will be counting on Tony Romo to numb the pain.
Duffy's will be offering a free shot of whiskey for every Romo interception against the Redskins this week. All you have to do claim your prize is be there, and be in Redskins gear.
It's a clever marketing ploy, especially considering Duffy's is essentially playing the house on a prop bet that doesn't create much risk for the bar.
Romo's game-deciding interception this week has gotten plenty of press, but that was only his second interception in five games.
He's completing 72 percent of his passes and has the second-highest passer rating among starting quarterbacks.The odds are against Duffy's patrons getting even one free shot out of the deal.
But there is something about Tony Romo that causes football fans to lose contact with reality.
