Mexican American Tony Romo's Grandparents Talk About Tony and Coming to America!
(In Spanish, so here is a summary)
Here, Tony Romo's grandfather speaks about:
. being brought to America, from Mexico, as a child. (eg: undocumented)
. people assumed his last name was Italian (Romo) when he was actually Mexican.
. Mother died in San Antonio; he was close to her; she died when he was young; and he suffered. Then he met his wife who "filled his eye" and took care of him.
His Abuela Felicita said to Tony:
. "Don't you want to play with the Cowboys? (not Green Bay)"
. Tony said when he was little: "Im going to be famous. "Im going to play basketball with the Chicago Bulls."
. She wished and prayed: "If only we could get Tony to play with the Cowboys, the whole family could come to Texas and be all together."
(Abuelo, good guitarist; Abuelita a very good singer)
