AT&T National = Tony Romo + Jessica Simpson Relationship Killer

Just a few days after I saw Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson doing the athlete-celebrity thing at the AT&T National, the couple is no more. This isn't such a surprise because they've broken up a million times before according to US Weekly. What's bad news for them is good news for me because I can segue smoothly to a belated post about my time at the Pro-Am with my dad.

Onto the pictures!

We went to the pro-am because Tiger doesn't' allow cameras on the course during the tournament. One pro with three amateurs meant you could easily tell whose ball was whose...and in this case it's the one 5 feet from the flag.

Congressional's blue course sure doesn't look like the muni courses I play...the fairways were actually green!

Here's B and T Crowd in action...rocking the sunhat because his dermatologist said so.

Vijay Singh is one tall guy...

...who hits the ball a mile.

Bring your larger bills if you get hungry...$3 for a PB&J!!

Why do all amateurs insist on swinging harder when K.J. Choi's fluid swing shows you don't need to in order to hit it with a slight fade over 300 yards?

Tiger Woods was paired with Tony Romo. With Romo playing with a 2 handicap, he hit just as close as Tiger most of the time.

Tiger let his caddie, a military vet, take his putt for birdie, as did Romo.

Tiger's headcover...sweet! I wonder what it'd get on Ebay.

Tiger's upper back and shoulders looking trim. He was all of 5 feet from me, but somehow, despite sharing cubic centimeters of oxygen together, none of his ability transferred to me. That's right, I breathed his golfing carbon dioxide.

Tiger crushing the ball on #8 after I told him to hurry up with my battery running low. He makes it look so easy and hits the ball so hard and so far that it's just not fair. His tee shots sounded crisper than all the other pros.

Here's what it looks and sounds like from a real videocamera and not my 3.1 MP dinosaur.

Pick your next life...QB for the Cowboys and a great golfer...or the best golfer on the planet and married to a Swedish nanny. I'm taking door #2.

Tiger's event supports military veterans and their families. All members of the military got in for free and were given complimentary food, drinks, etc. in their own pavilion.

Behold, Bruce Boudreau, coach of the Washington Capitals...the only coach in DC whose job is safe.

Jason Campbell missing a putt like his team misses the playoffs...zing!

From a HUI came...

...the Screaming Eagles parachuting onto the first fairway. Replace those divots!

A real celebrity giving an autograph.

Tony, Tiger, and Jessica...Oh my...she's not arm in arm with Tony...gossip!

Jessica looked great and did a decent job singing the National Anthem.

If only I could steal a set of clubs from the putting green.

Putting together a care package for the troops.

I told you it's not fair how good these guys are.
